Nodulus by Dan Kondratyuk FREE

iPhone Screenshot 1

Have you ever played ThinkFun’s River Crossing Puzzles? It started a new genre of puzzles known as Plank Puzzles. The object is to pick up logs and use them over the stumps to create a new path to the other side of the river.  Read more here.

Dan Kondratyuk’s Nodulus is essentially the same thing, but with cool graphics.

There are 20 levels and they get pretty tough.  I solved the first 13 levels. More levels are coming as other players create their own.

Spin Mix is an old game from 2012 that’s related. It’s no longer available, which means that you should download good games when I tell you to.
How it’s different:
1. The object is to get the specific plank to the double circle target.
2. All planks can be swiveled at any time.

Roy Hamm recently contacted me about his puzzle app game: Dozen!  It’s a game to test your reflexes/speed.Read the instructions of the 3 images in order to get the rules/objectives.  It’s another good, fun game that may help ward off Alzheimer’s. We should all be playing these types of games.

it’s red by Jakub Szolomicki FREE

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

it’s red comes from Jakub Szolomicki.  His description:
Try your best in the hardest game ever released.
Solve 45 unique riddles and prove your genius.
Download for free for mobile devices.

It’s a logic puzzle game filled with 45 unique, mind-blowing, extremely hard riddles. If you like puzzle games, IQ tests and stuff like that, red is for you.

iPhone Screenshot 3  iPhone Screenshot 5

The objective is to get the whole screen to be red.  There are 45 levels and each one has a unique solution.

My thoughts
1. It’s not the hardest game ever released.
2. Bart Bonte’s Yellow (Game) came out in May of this year.  it’s red borrows the idea but seems to have unique puzzles. Bart’s game is more polished.
3. Hints are available for each level and the price is to watch an ad.
4. I’ve solved a few levels without really understanding what I did.

I’m stuck on level 26. I’ve tried to access the hints, but that’s not working for me.

Rookfall by By Michael Bunger Free

 iPhone Screenshot 1

Rookfall is one of those games where the objective is to fill the entire grid by swiping a rook as far as it will travel.

iPhone Screenshot 3

You first must choose the starting point.  The red lines are walls that cannot be traversed.

iPhone Screenshot 5

I tackled about 20 of the 5×5 grids.  There are about 100 levels in the 5×5 size. I didn’t play any of the 6×6 or 7×7 because those cost money.  And besides, I’ve done thousands of these over the years via other apps.

I like the graphics.  The rook travels fast.

Rop: Free Hexagon Rope Puzzle Game

iPhone Screenshot 4  iPhone Screenshot 3

Rop: Free Hexagon Rope Puzzle Game is an interesting puzzle app game. The object is to slide the dots to various circles so that the final image matches the one at the top. Seems easy at first. But then it gets tough.

iPhone Screenshot 1

The Classic Mode – already described.
The Cut Mode – you are given the shape to make and will need to cut some line segments off.

At the moment I’ve done about 40 of the Classic and 12 of the Cut modes.   I have not tried any of the Link puzzles yet.

Dung Rings: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 3

Dung Rings is a free puzzle app game that’s pretty much the same as the Hungarian Rings – a mechanical puzzle from about 25 years ago. In 2000, Rubik came out with his own version called Rubik’s Rings.

The object is to scramble the pieces and then restore the pattern. Getting the outer rings is fairly easy. It’s where the circles intersect that gets tough.

Typeshift by Zach Gage FREE

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 4

Typeshift is a word puzze from Zach Gage.  The idea is to slide each column up and down and utilize every single letter.  It’s been a while since I played a word puzzle. This game is okay.

TwoDots: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 4
Lots of people are playing TwoDots. The objective is to solve each level by achieving various goals. Essentially, it’s a lot like Candy Crush. When you run out of lives, you can purchase more. This game is making boatloads of money. Unlike this blog.
Here’s what’s better: if you can get a square of the same color and swipe them out, all of those colors will be removed from the board. That becomes the essential strategy for pretty much every level.
There are 85 levels, of which I’ve solved 42. When I run out of lives, I switch back to FOLT, until I run out of lives there.

Magic Hexagon Ultimate: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone 屏幕截图 2  iPhone 屏幕截图 5

There’s a mechanical puzzle called Mad Triad. The object is to swivel the center circles to rotate the triangles around.

Magic Hexagon Ultimate is from Pham Quang Viet and does exactly what Mad Triad does.  Mad Triad was a commercial failure because it broke too often and stores got too many returns.

This app has another challenge mode where you must solve the puzzle within a given number of moves.
