Mystery Lighthouse 2 HD by PHB Media Ltd $.99

Last week I reviewed Blackthorn Castle which was really long.  So I decided to redo Mystery Lighthouse (the original) and Mystery Lighthouse 2, which I never played. In the original, the puzzle of the alarm clock was amusing.

The story is thin, but still satisfying.  You have landed on a moon of Saturn. Your task is to find Uncle Augustus.

The graphics are charming.

One puzzle was difficult, the rest – kind of easy.

Sequence Nine by Ahoot Media Free

Loyal Blog Follower William Hu steered me to Sequence Nine.  I think I saw the icon on the App Store and assumed it was a Flow clone.  It’s nothing like it. In fact, it’s unique, challenging, sophisticated and most importantly, fun.


Look at the first two images.  Your task is to draw a route in the bottom 9 squares. When you’re done, the green dot in the top will follow that pattern, repeatedly, and hopefully arrive at the hole in the top right corner.

There are 240 levels and things get tough.
1. You can’t pass through the red walls.
2. Passing through a white dot will open/close the white lines.
3. Wormholes:  Many levels have two sets of wormholes.
4. The hardest levels include white lines (with white dots) also yellow lines (with yellow dots) and wormholes.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first 3 batches or 180 levels.

Loyal Blog Follower Joel told me about Strand. It’s similar to a series of puzzle books from Japan. The concept is called Hashi.  If a circle has 6 in it, that means there are 6 bridges emanating from it. There have been numerous puzzle apps that duplicate the concept.

What’s cool with Strand:
1. Bridges can bend around the black points.
2. Portals
3. Different colored circles. Blue circles must match up. However, some circles have 2 colors.

The first 2 sections have 50 free levels or so. I did them all. After that, they cost $ .99 for each group of 25.
