LynzFree: free puzzle app for iphone, ipad


LynzFree comes from Matthew Little.

It is an edge-matching puzzle with funky colors.  There are 3 levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced.  In the beginner levels: trade the 9 tiles in a 3×3 grid.  In the intermediate level: same as beginner, but some tiles can also rotate.

Advanced levels: they’re not ready.

I’ve been doing edge-matching puzzles for many years.  It’s not something I actively seek out.  However, I do like these graphics. Right now I’ve done 2 of the beginner and 2 of the intermediate levels.

It’s a free puzzle app game. Kids will like this.



HexMaze: free puzzle app for iphone, ipad


Hex Maze comes from Xia Pei Ming. It’s not a maze. There’s nothing maze-y about it! I suspect that the author used ‘maze’ as a synonym for puzzle.

Rearrange the tiles so that each one has the correct number of tiles surrounding it.  For example, do you see the yellow 2? It’s good because it’s next to 2 tiles.  Red means that too many tiles are touching it. Green – not enough tiles.

We’ve seen this type of puzzle many times before with a rectangular grid.  So it’s nice to see this.  Also, the graphics are good.

In terms of ‘puzzle [Read More...]

Penguin Plunge: puzzle app for iphone, ipad


Penguin Plunge: Stuck in Antarctica is exactly like Lunar Lockout from ThinkFun.

ThinkFun has been getting ripped off too many times. Too often, somebody comes out with a version of Rush Hour.

This is the second ripoff of Lunar Lockout.

Nob Yoshigahara was the creative force behind Lunar Lockout.  I recall sitting on the side during an International Puzzle Party in Tokyo and he was performing a magic trick. He told me that it was ‘so simple’. But I don’t think anybody could figure it out.  He was a character.



TouchNumber 3D: free puzzle app for iphone, ipad


If something looks like a Rubik’s Cube, I’m interested.

TouchNumber 3D has nothing to do with Rubik’s Cube.

The object is to tap on the numbers from 0 – 26 as quickly as possible. That’s it.

#0-8 are yellow, the next set is green, then purple. So that helps.

It’s fun for maybe 5 minutes. It will not make the List of Best Puzzle Apps of 2013. Not a chance!

But I like the graphics.
