1 to 25 Number Challenge: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

’1 to 25 Numbers Challenge’ comes from Peter Li. It is a game where you have 10 seconds to tap the numbers 1-25 in order. For each game, the numbers are scrambled. You can study them. As soon as you start, your time starts.

I’ve done all 25 in under 25 seconds a bunch of times.   This is fun, but once you’ve done it a few times, the novelty wears off. I think this game would be excellent for Alzheimer’s patients.  Keep the brain/finger connections sharp!

Mole Rescue – Drag the mole to the hole: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1

Mole Rescue – Drage the mole to the hole is one of those games where all the moles in the same row or column travel together. Naturally, this must be done within a certain number of moves.

iPhone Screenshot 5

What’s different from the other games that employ this? If there are 2 moles in a column and one is being blocked by a bolder, then neither mole can travel up and down.

Music: long time followers of this blog know that I always turn off the music right away on all puzzle apps to preserve the battery. In this game, each time you open the game, the music is already on.  And I must say, it’s beyond annoying.  Download this game just to experience that. 

There are 70 levels and they’re not very hard.  I completed all 70 puzzles. I struggled on about 10 of them. The last image shows that I need one step to complete the final level.

Loopadot By Ralf Schubert & Joy King FREE

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

Loopadot comes from Ralf Schubert and Joy King.  The object is to slide the circles, one at a time, to get them to their correct spots.

iPhone Screenshot 3  iPhone Screenshot 4

Each level can be solved within a certain number of moves.  Powerups are an option, but not necessary.  Essentially, it’s the old 15 sliding tile puzzle, but with duplicate tiles.

There are 93 levels. I’ve solved about 30 levels.

The graphics are very good.

This is Ralf’s & Joy’s first game.  I’m looking forward to their other games.

Pepe Porcupine: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

Screenshot 4

Pepe Porcupine is another Sokoban puzzle.  There are approximately 300 levels. Fortunately, you can skip around.  I’ve done about 10 levels at the easy/and hard levels. 

I’m not sure if these levels are original or copied. It’s a good set of puzzles, especially for anybody who’s never done a sokoban puzzle.

The all-time greatest set of sokoban puzzles: Box World, which has 100 levels.  In the mid-90′s, I paid $ 5 for it and got many many hours of entertainment.

JelBreak: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

 iPhone Screenshot 1
JelBreak is one of those ‘slide your men as far as possible’ to get to the exit.
See the brown squares with white dots: those are sticky squares – you will automatically stop on them. 
What’s different from the other puzzles of this type? Like-colored blocks will stick to each other and will travel as a duo.  If your green man slides into a purple man, you will trade places.
I’m not sure how many levels there are. But I’ve done a lot.
JelBreak is free.

Crosses Puzzles: Unlimited Domino Free!

iPhone Screenshot 2  iPhone Screenshot 4

Crosses Puzzles: Unlimited Domino comes from Yufeng Long. The object is to get all the crosses to become white. Each cross can be in 1 of 4 positions: Red (right), Green (down), Yellow (left) and White (up).

When a green cross becomes yellow, if it points to another cross on its left, then that cross will rotate too. Solving 1 cross can lead to the un-solving of its neighbors because there is often a chain reaction.
There’s a lot to like about Crosses Puzzles: Unlimited Domino. The graphics are nice. The puzzles start out easy and gradually, I was able to come up with a system.  But then the harder questions made me rethink that. 
I especially like that there are only 60 levels.  Of those, I’ve done 29 and am stuck on 30.

The Weaver: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

I positively love the games from Pyrosphere. Just the other day, Federico Prat Villar noticed that I  didn’t mention The Weaver when I recently talked about Ribbon Puzzles. I had never heard of it.

iPhone Screenshot 4

Last night, I downloaded it & solved all 150 levels in about one hour. It’s not hard. But the graphics & interplay are splendid.
The objective is to get all the ribbons to pass through a matching colored square in the bottom right or lower left side. Tap on the intersection of 2 ribbons and they will swap directions. That’s where the graphics are magically wonderful.
Where things get more interesting: instead of having an orange square as the goal, that square might be a blue rectangle with a yellow rectangle. That means that either colored ribbon can pass through that space. That’s where it gets a bit tricky.
My one qualm is my score for each level. On some levels, where I struggled and took a lot of time, I got 3 stars. On other levels which I solved effortlessly, I got only 1 star. As I’ve said in the past, I’m not a purist that needs to solve each level with the minimum # of moves.

Other Ribbon Puzzles:
Colorbind – outstanding
TAPES – almost as good as Colorbind
Woven – easy, but fun
Ribbon Puzzle - different from Colorbind and TAPES. Worth trying.

Color Square Puzzle Game: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1   iPhone Screenshot 3
Miroslaw Zielinski has made a game very similar to Game About Squares.  His is called Color Square Puzzle Game. It may be a complete clone. It may be original.  I’m not sure.
There are 60 levels and I’ve been stuck on #25 for a while.
