The Very Best Puzzle Apps of 2013

Ladies & Gentlemen,

each week, the ITunes Store publishes approximately 200 new puzzle app games. I’ve taken it upon myself to sort through them and play test as many as humanly possible. I skip the ones that look like clones of Bejeweled, the 15 Puzzle and Candy Crush.

Yesterday I published a list of The Best Puzzle Apps of 2013. What distinguishes today’s list from yesterday’s? I was hooked on these more and played them more extensively.

The order is loosely tied to the order in which they appeared. Please download these. A lot of them are free!

Note: last year I was extremely remorseful because I forgot to include a really great fun puzzle. If I have written a good review of your game this year and forgot to include it in the list today or yesterday, it’s probably an oversight on my part. Please shoot me a note, but don’t shoot me.

It’s also possible that I never played your game!  If that’s the case, do let me know so I can play-test that.

Tom’s thoughts: this game is similar to a few other games. Unfortunately, I don’t remember those titles. I solve all 40 of the ‘hard’ 7×7 levels.  Not so hard. But still fun.
