If you're a fan of jigsaw-style puzzle games, today we're going to show you one of our all-time favorite takes on the genre. It's a different sort of puzzle, one that is "crafted to extract the most yays per minute" as touted by the developer, a game known only as Azzl.
Looking for a challenge? Look no further -- for we've found a game that seems so easy, so simple, so benign, but winds up being delightfully difficult. We're betting that if you like challenges, you're also probably going to like a little action-puzzle game called Tangent.
We love calming puzzle games. We love games that work out our gray matter without stressing us out with arbitrary time requirements or high scores. That's why we were instantly attracted to Kami, a beautiful puzzle game that is as pleasing to the eye as it is challenging to the brain.
We've got another game for all you casual puzzle game addicts -- something that doesn't rely on stress as a mechanic to trip you up, or something that doesn't force you to do things for a set amount of points. This time we're taking a look at Radiant Grid, a simple puzzle game that is easy to pick up, and harder to put down.
Puzzles are a funny genre: they can be relaxing, challenging, or downright frustrating. They can combine with other genres seamlessly, and work together to create intricate gaming experiences, or survive on their own as a simple game to occupy your time. Today we take a look at TriZen, a tangram puzzle that we enjoyed quite a bit.
There's a saying that goes something like "bad artists steal from one, good artists steal from many," which basically means that if you're going to create something, you should take all your favorite ideas and create something new, rather than just recreating something that's been done before. This seems to be the philosophy the developers of our new favorite puzzle game, Stencilsmith, have followed.
We know you're tired of games that advertise themselves as challenging, only to fall short when you beat them in an hour or two. You want a real puzzle game that is going to bend your brain, you want something that is going to make you work for every victory. Well, you're in luck, because that's the premise behind Minimal: Deluxe.
You probably already know this, but we love perspective puzzle games. We'd recently talked about Monument Valley, but today we're here to talk about a stripped-down, simple game called Hocus that is designed to give your brain a workout in a relaxing setting.
We're back with another game that expects you to do two things at once, and this time you're going to have to combine fast reflexes with spacial reasoning in order to complete geometric puzzles. Today, we're talking about Geometry Lock, a geometry puzzle-slash-reflex game that has gained some traction in the App Store.
One of our personal favorite genres of game is the perspective puzzler. Relatively rare, these games will challenge the way you think, forcing you to exercise your spacial reasoning and your lateral thinking. Today, we're here to talk about one of the most highly-praised perspective puzzle games we've seen, Monument Valley.
