Snake Walk is a topology type puzzle app game. The object is to start at any square, then travel in a direction as far as possible and hopefully cover all the squares. Except for the red squares which act as blocking walls.
We’ve seen this type of puzzle app many times. Probably the best version is Mortal Coil which offers over 400 advanced levels.
Snake Walk has 50 levels with ‘more coming soon.’ I’ve done them all. I like the puzzles. There’s a good range of easy, medium & hard puzzles. But the mechanics are a bit clumsy. I do [Read More...]
When it comes to puzzlers, Disney knows how to make them. Where’s my Perry is another physics based puzzle game from the developer after Where’s my Water. The player has to use water (in different forms, i.e. liquid, steam and ice) to solve very challenging puzzles.

Let’s talk gameplay. This is quite [Read More...]
A stereogram is a flat image that when viewed properly produces a magical 3D result. Some people will tell you that they simply cannot see these kinds of images. I recently had someone tell me that he has not been able to get these to work and he has been trying since the 1990s when Magic Eye started producing posters for sale in shopping malls. The truth is that almost everyone can see them (if they try hard enough!). An obvious exception would be someone who has a serious vision problem.
Stare at the following image created by Gary W. [Read More...]
The Hercules is a top-notch puzzle. It is by Bits and Pieces and of very good quality. It is Made in China.. .The 5 same-shaped pieces are made of heavy, anodized aluminum and come in a black, painted wooden tray.
