Magnets Puzzle Free is the name of this free puzzle app game from Wiseguy Sharp LLC.
The object is to place magnets into the slots and orient them correctly. A + can never be next to a +. Also, the numbers on the sides indicate how many +’s and -’s exist in that row or column.
Tricky: some rectangular tiles will have no magnets at all.
I’ve played this game only on the easy level to get the hang of it. It’s interesting.
I’m not sure, but this type of puzzle may have been originally published in Japan.
Hey, it’s [Read More...]
Swisch is a series of 80 tilt maze puzzles. You are the red circle and your object is to get inside the green U. I have done so many Tilt-maze puzzle apps, that I’ve completely lost track.
Swisch has lots of extra features, most of which I’ve seen before: wormholes, arrows that force your direction, unlocking doors, etc. Interesting feature: the wooden blocks need to be hammered twice before disintegrating. I don’t think I’ve seen that feature before. This is quite interesting.
The 80 levels: 11 training levels. Puzzle Pack #1 has 25 levels – kind of easy. Puzzle pack [Read More...]
Ryan Gorer has developed a most interesting series of puzzles. You are given a pipe with a star on it. You must slide the pipe and bend it so that the star lines up perfectly on the blank star.
There are 100 levels. I’ve done 33 of them. Some of them are quite tricky.
One qualm I have with this puzzle: suppose you tap on the pipe to bend it. It may bend to the right instead of to the left. If that happens, double tap on the joint and hopefully it will unbend and then bend in the [Read More...]
The object of Vubu is to move the men into the blue square. They all move in unision. Be careful about losing a man over the edge.
Most of the Vubus are of the regular type. The Wise Man: he’ll move normally, but he won’t go over the edge. The Blind Man: he won’t move at all. Unless another Vubu is next to him. The Stubborn Man: he’ll move normally, unless another is next to him; then he’ll remain still. The Dragon Vubu: he breathes fire and will incinerate another vubu.
These puzzles are pure logic. Of the 50 regular [Read More...]
Dedale is a series of challenging maze topology puzzles. The object is to turn the white squares into a color by tracing a path over each square exactly once.
Harder levels: some squares must be passed over twice.
Interesting element: some of the tiles are rectangles.
I’ve played different versions of this type of puzzle before: Numeric Paranoia comes to mind. Dedale has 100 levels. Right now I’m stuck on level 49.
The most important thing: Dedale is fun and challenging.

Double Maze is a series of 40 maze puzzles. As you can see, the object is to get both orange balls to the white target at the same time.
Notice the yellow lines? That enables you to move one ball while the other ball is held in place.
Double Maze is not terribly hard. I’ve solved all of the levels. #40 was very difficult.
You have the option to create your own levels and share them. I have not explored this too much. But I have noticed that some people created levels that were humorously too easy.

The object of Twin Beams: plant 2 trees in every park so that each row and column has exactly two trees. Also, two trees cannot be adjacent to each other – vertically, horizontally or diagonally. I’ve seen this type of puzzle before. Most recently in ’63 Logic Games’ which is another puzzle app. They call that game Parks. Nicola Salmoria contacted me recently about his new app Twin Beams with a really long explanation of everything: how much time he put into it, how he borrowed the concept etc. Bottom Line: there are 10,000 levels: 2500 at each level. The easy levels are [Read More...]
