Count on on me is an excellent puzzle in all aspects. To start with, it is beautifully constructed of two, light and dark, exotic hardwoods. Then, it comes in a two piece wooden box, which makes for great storage or travel, thus ensuring the pieces don’t get lost. The box also acts as a tray to fit the pieces in. The pieces consist of 10 numbers from 0 to 9. Although the pieces are not interlocking as with a typical jigsaw puzzle; they must fit together, leaving a grid of 20 small squares. [Read More...]
There are so many different variations of the Rubik’s Cube out there that it is hard to keep track of every one. This is the Master Skewb. The pieces have been twisted sideways to make your mind think even more then usual. I for one would love to try to solve this. This is a solution to it in case you get stuck.
You can purchase the Master Skewb at Puzzle Master.

Contre Jour brings its player to a new and attractive world given shape by the interplay of darkness and light – talk about drawing a thin line between interactive art and games. The player is required to use their finger to change the landscape and make sure they get Petit (the mysterious creature) to safety. Swipe, tap and pull objects such as tendrils, pulleys and air geysers to successfully complete challenging puzzles. The soundtrack composed by David Ari Leon, sets a game mood that is both bedeviling and delightful to the player from beginning to the end.

I’m sure you’ve seen this concept in countless puzzles already: You have an object trapped inside a cage and you need to find a way to free it. I happen to own at least two different designs like this, the Ball in a Cage (you can find a metal version here) and the Cast Cage, but there are many more. My latest addition, the Owl in a Cage comes from a Czech puzzle manufacturer, Clever Toys. They have other designs with different animals too, which you can get here [Read More...]
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.
The Cast News is an excellent puzzle for a lot of reasons. It is beautiful to look at, it is extremely well made, it looks easy, can be a real challenge, unless you understand the principle involved, then it is simplicity at its best. There are many puzzles that consist of an object such as this that are “locked” and the object is to open it or take it apart. Obviously, there must be something inside the puzzle that “locks “the two pieces together. Simply by shaking it, confirms the fact that there is something loose inside. [Read More...]
