Grot Puzzle – free point scoring puzzle app

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

Description from the App Store
Grot is a fast and simple puzzle game. Practice your logical thinking skills by trying to get the highest point value possible. Play multiple rounds and keep improving your score every time! There is almost an infinite number of solutions, so you’ll never get bored. Suitable for minds of any age.

Rules of the game:
- tap any field to start chain reaction – fields will move one by one in direction shown by arrows,
- make the most valuable chains possible,
- longer chains give bonus moves,
- clear all fields in a row or in a column to get extra points,
- different colours give different points.

Collect as many points as possible. Complete epic achievements. Hit the highest score!

Tom’s thoughts:
1. The scoring system is very unclear. Some colors yield more points than other colors.
2. Bonus moves are awarded. Again, no idea how and why this occurs.
3. When arrows are eliminated, all the other arrows fall down to fill the space and new random arrows fill out the top.
4. Grot Puzzle has potential, unfortunately, the 4×4 grid, in my opinion, is just too small.
5. Only 98 players are on the Leaderboard. I’m #52 at 572 points.

Circulate Dots: free point scoring puzzle app game

iPhone Screenshot 1 iPhone Screenshot 5

Janardhana Guptha has an interesting point scoring puzzle app game called Circulate Dots.  The objective: start at the green dot and get to the red dot by landing on it on your 6th turn.

The second image shows this nicely. The starting point was on the left (it doesn’t count) and the final 6th move will certainly on the red dot.

Where it gets tricky:
1. Tail of your last 5 lines is always present, like a snake. And you cannot retrace that path. Though you may cross it.
2. There’s a timer. The better you get, the less time is given to you.

According to the leaderboard, there are just 77 people and I’m #2.
Circulate Dots is not brilliant, but it’s different and it’s fun.

Don’t Click Me: free point scoring game for brain speed

iPhone Screenshot 1

Don’t Click Me is a great game for folks worrying about Alzheimer’s.  The directions are so poorly written!

See the green squares: don’t click on them. Or the white squares. Only click on the black squares, starting at the bottom and working your way up. The screen will become like a treadmill. You must tap on the black tiles as they scroll down. 

I like this game a lot. When things speed up and I’m going back and forth to get all the tiles, my brain is exercising. Then suddenly the goal is achieved and the scrolling comes to an immediate halt. It feels like a jolt and I’m a bit dizzy.

Don’t Click Me may be a clone of something else. I’ve seen 2 other people playing this on the subway. One was called Piano Tiles.

Question: is it better to use one hand or two hands for this.

The Impossible Dodging Game: free point scoring game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 2

Diego Acevedo is the author of The Impossible Dodging Game. The object is to place your man, a small square, anywhere on the board and then dodge the oncoming traffic of rectangles that fall from above. You can slide your man side to side & up and down.

I like this game a lot because things start off nice and slow and very gradually speed up.  My high score so far is 279.

This is the kind of game where I say I’ll play it a few times, but end up playing it for a month.

Lines 123 – FREE Point Scoring puzzle App

iPhone 스크린샷 1  iPhone 스크린샷 2

Sang Moon Joo has produced some nifty puzzle app games recently. It’s hard to keep up.

Lines 123 looks like a version of Tower of Hanoi.  It’s not.

The instructions are simple.
1. Move 1 tile from one column to another.
2. Then a tile will drop, always in order from left to right.
3. Combine like numbers to form larger numbers and clear up space.
4. The average game takes about 10-15 minutes.
5. The tiles at the top are randomly generated.

My top score is 9800. My highest tile so far – 10.

There is no leaderboard, which is a shame, because I’m wondering if anybody has gotten an 11.
I suspect this is one of those puzzle games that nobody downloads. It’s really good.

Domino Drop: point scoring puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

Click to zoom  iPhone Screenshot 2

David Cole, Loyal Blog Follower, told me about Domino Drop, a point scoring puzzle game.

Since the early 80′s I’ve never like Tetris and Domino Drop reminds me of it. However, it’s very different. The objective is to match 2 or more tiles to score points. Of course, those tiles disappear.
Scoring System: if you get 2 tiles of any number, you’ll score 100 points for each tile. But it gets more interesting.
Pay attention here: if you get  a chain reaction, the points will accumulate exponentially.
Look at the second to last image. That came from a game I was playing. I moved the 4/5 to the third column.
 
The 4′s gave me 200 points (100 each). Ho hum.
The subsequent 5′s gave me 1000 points (500 each). Hmmm.
When the 5′s disappeared, it freed the 6.
The 6′s gave me 2000 points (1000 each). Oh Yeah.
When the bottom 6 disappeared, it freed the 2.
The 2′s gave me 4000 points (2000 each). Now we’re talking.
That freed up the 4 in the 3rd column.
The 4′s then yielded 8000 points (4000 each). Wow.
[Also, the 3's merged for another 4000 points (2000 each). This happened at the same time as the 2's merging, so the scoring stayed consistent.]
Total: 19,200 points for one move. Examine the last photo to see the final result of that one move.
My high score is 133,800 which places me at 709 out of 18,000 players.
As with most point scoring puzzle app games, there is an element of luck.

One More Line: free point scoring reflex game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 4

One of my students recently told me about One More Line: a game that’s cool, difficult, colorful and somewhat addictive. The game starts with your man (the rainbow line) traveling straight ahead. You must avoid the objects by circling around them and then release at the right tangent point and not crash into a wall or object.

One More Line is quite popular. But it needs to be improved. For example, it moves too fast. It should really start off slowly. The point scoring system is based on how long you survive. My high score is only 21, which I think represents only 10.5 seconds. Something silly: the one’s look like 7′s.

One More Line is free and comes with ads. Give it a shot. And if you end up succeeding with a high score, let me know.

Black Boxes: free point scoring puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I like clever point scoring games that contain a puzzling element.

Black Boxes comes from Kevin McLean and Konrad Bajtyngier. It’s quite good.  First, combine the pink box – two at a time – to create 1 red box.  Combine 2 red boxes to form 1 Black Box.

Next, combine 2 light blue boxes to make 1 dark blue box. Then 2 blue boxes to make 1 Black Box.

When 3 Black Boxes are lined up, you score points. If you can get a super cluster of Black Boxes, you’ll score major points.

There are 2 versions of this game: the first: you are given a time limit.  The second, more cerebral version, you get 40 moves.

My high score is around 4600. I like this game.
