Sudoku Adventure: puzzle game app for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1
Scott Maramo recently contacted me about his new puzzle app game Sudoku Adventure. Needless to say, it’s Sudoku!  However, I must say, there’s a funny animation at the beginning that’s kind of cute.

Having done thousands of sudokus, I’m kind of tired of the genre.  Sorry Scott!

Outfolded by 3 Sprockets Free!

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

Outfolded by 3 Sprockets is an extremely popular puzzle app game. The object is to unroll – face by face – your cubes to go from 1 square to another. The game is endless.  I did 12 levels and thought to myself – it’s okay.  I think it’s appealing because of the music and the fact that you can undo every move.

Somebody on the Leaderboard has done over 4000 levels.

Reviews from the App Store:


Amazing game! One problem

I played the game constantly
And I would enjoy the satisfaction of winning and getting new themes. But once I got to level 400 I lost that feeling… There’s noting to look forward too, and I found out the game has no end. I can’t play the game with no end, maybe it’s just me but the game would be so much more if there were themes for the next couple hundred levels, but I want to say thank you. It’s such an amazing game, I loved it, while it lasted.
Calming/Relaxing
The atmosphere, everything from colors to music and sound effects, is deeply relaxing. The game allows to go at your own pace and allows for unlimited restarts on each level. A game that normally would be frustrating is extremely relaxing.

Snaky Snake by Nicolas Pierre-Loti-Viaud FREE

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

Nicolas Pierre-Loti-Viaud recently contacted me about his new puzzle Snaky Snake.  Nicolas made Cubot 2 years ago.  That’s a great puzzle with exceptional graphics.

iPhone Screenshot 3  iPhone Screenshot 4

Snaky Snake is more of a dexterity game. Still, quick strategic thinking is essential.

The object is to rotate the globe so that your snake will gobble up its food and then grow.  The game ends when your snake crashes into something or itself!

There are 10 different worlds at the moment. A new one will be added every week.

I’ve played through 5 levels.  My highest score so far is 41 in Shark World. Funny: the shark eats rubber ducks.

The unicorn world: follow the seams of a baseball.

The Panda world is the hardest so far. Crossing the bridges over the river is difficult. The world spins a bit too much.

I must confess, the sharp rotations to avoid obstacles can sometimes make me seasick.

I definitely want to explore the other 5 worlds though.

Fastest Robot Solving Rubik’s Cube

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/robot-solves-rubiks-cube_us_56a5d134e4b076aadcc71acb

About 18 months ago I attended the Rubik’s Cube exhibit at the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey.  It had a video showing the history of robots that could solve Rubik’s Cube.  I believe the fastest machine did it in 6 seconds. Or maybe it was 3 seconds.

Well, there’s a new robot in town that is blazing fast.

Make Square from Claudio Sassaki is a point scoring puzzle app game. The object is to place the pieces, 3 at a time, onto the grid to make squares.

At first, it seemed that this game would take forever to play. But as more colors get added, things get crowded.

I’ve lost track of how many robots have broken the record for speed cubing. This record is going to stand for a while.

Beam – Puzzle Game by Ryan Kozierok Free

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

Loyal Blog Follower Joel told me about Beam – Puzzle Game by Ryan Kozierok. There are multiple objectives. Look at the last image. The object is to get the orange disc into the orange square. However, it cannot cross any other beam.  The solution is to move one of the blue discs first.

iPhone Screenshot 3  iPhone Screenshot 4

Look at the first image. The object is to break the beams.  Most of the 60 levels have multiple objectives.

There are 60 levels and 10 bonus levels if you get 3 stars for optimum solutions.  I solved all 60 relatively quickly. It’s not hard, but it is an interesting concept.  I like the graphics too.  And it’s free.

Make Me Yellow by Peng Wan FREE

iPhone Screenshot 2  iPhone Screenshot 5

In May of this year Bart Bonte published Yellow (Game). Great little game.

I’m not sure if Peng Wan’s Make Me Yellow is a clone. The concept is the same, but the levels appear be different.  I did the first 6 levels of Peng’s game (stuck on 6) and then redid the first 20 levels of Bart’s game. I saw no identical puzzles. But of course, there could be.

I emailed Peng to ask him about this. No response. I also emailed Bart, who said thanks for the alert.

At the VERY LEAST, Peng: you should acknowledge that you were inspired by Bart.

Logisquares: update

iPad Screenshot 1           iPad Screenshot 4

Every so often I have to spring-clean my ipad and delete old puzzle games to make room for new ones. Logisquares was a recent victim. However, before I did that, I decided to complete all 64 levels. I only needed to do 5 more. Once you get the hang of the game, they go pretty fast. But, those last ones I had to do very slowly & carefully. Read my old review.
