Cubecode: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 3

Cubecode comes from Montgomery Guilhaus. It’s a point scoring game.  You must swap pairs of cubes in order to get like cubes in a column.  When that happens, you score points and gain time.  I’m not really sure how the scoring system works. But my high score is 120 and that game lasted maybe 1 minute. Think fast and move your finger faster.

Montgomery’s description: ‘The aim of the game is to swap different cubes by dragging them around the screen and completing a column with the same colour. This has to be done before the timer runs out, but do not worry, the timer will get faster and faster and faster. And just to be nice, the shapes on the screen will also change, becoming more complex as time goes on.’

Slide Puzzle. NikSan Tech FREE

Slide Puzzle. comes from NikSan Tech. The object is to slide the numbers to their correct spot.

Green tiles are good. Red tiles: need to be shunted around.

There are 500 levels, which is way too many.  I’ve done about 75 levels.

If you’re the type of puzzler who is looking to solve while making the fewest moves, this game is for you.

Relaxing game. If you want more of a challenge, look for Subway Shuffle.

Politaire by Pine Entertainment Free

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2
Politaire is a point scoring puzzle app game.
 

Politaire is a Solitaire mixed with Poker. Your aim is to make winning hands with 5 active cards in your hand.


Choose cards that you want to discard and swipe it away. Upcoming cards will fill up your active hand and score if you make a winning hand. Discarded cards will go back to the pile, waiting to come up again. 

The minimalist visuals hide an interesting depth that will keep challenging and surprising as you master it.”

My thoughts:
1. Excellent graphics
2. My high score is 2800 after 5 games.
3. You could better maximize your score by keeping a companion deck of cards to keep track of what’s left toward the end. Expert bridge players keep this in their memory banks constantly.
4. You may be going for a yellow flush….but if there’s a blue 7 to match your yellow 7 – tough luck. That’s why this game is interesting.

Solve – Decrypt Logic Kyung-Hun Kim FREE

Solve – Decrypt Logic comes from Kyung-Hun Kim. It’s one of those games where each level is a completely different puzzle. Can you figure it out. Hints are available.

I don’t know how many levels there are.  The concept has been done before. Still, it’s interesting.

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.

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.

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.

Rolling Bolts – Logic Puzzles by LÖVLUND INNOVATION AB FREE

 Rolling Bolts – Logic Puzzles  comes from LÖVLUND INNOVATION AB. It’s a gear puzzle where the object is to rotate the sections to match the rims.

1. All the gears are connected.
2. Each gear can rotate in either direction. A key element to solve is changing the direction in between moves.
3. The fewer moves, the more stars to accumulate.
4. The big gears move once per move.  The smaller gears move two steps for each move.
5. The smallest gears move 5 spaces. In essence, they’re really just moving 1 space, but in the opposite direction.

I like this game.  However, there are ads. Also, I had accumulated a certain number of stars to open the next section…..and mysteriously, my stars were gone and I had to start over again. Another problem: you have to swipe across a gear to make it change direction. Unfortunately, when doing so, you might actually tap it and make a move. This happens more on the tiny gears.

I like the concept. The graphics are okay.  But it’s not clicking with me.

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.
