Secret Agent — Outsmarted Again! Agent A, a point and click puzzler is out now.
Playing as spy Agent A on the trail of Ruby La Rouge, you’ve tracked her to a secret lair. In this gorgeously illustrated adventure, you progress through the lair, solve puzzles, find hidden objects, and explore for secrets. It’s all done with a well thought out touch exploration system.
I really enjoyed the first chapter of Agent A, out now for iOS from Yak & Co. While it’s a little short, and maybe a little on the easy side, the combination of voice overs, fun puzzles, and great art really pulled me in.

Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon Review - Super Spider
(editor note: in honor of Halloween, here’s a great recent release to play this weekend.)
Puzzle / adventure game Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon puts you in the hairy hide of a spider, and as Gamezebo’s review relays, it ain’t a bad experience.
This is the sequel’s only major drawback, and to some players it may not even be considered a negative. Shrouded Moon is really just walking a fine line between technical accessibility and immersion, and it’s favored the former in this instance. This makes the game easier to pick up and play, to put down and return to later, and to tackle at your own pace, especially with high scores in mind.

In the future you are your self or what you used to be. I dunno. Future Sense is a time confused but awesome puzzle game.
Future Sense has a very odd story, some hack writing that sounds like a bad sci-fi mystery novel, and some graphics that aren’t quite up to modern device. But it is also a pretty cool puzzle game where time is used as an instrument to solve the puzzles. Rewinding time, telling the future, they can both be used to help solve levels in this top-down stealthy puzzle game.

Oceanhorn updated for iOS 9, looks even better than before. (was: Oceanhorn Review)
(editor note: Oceanhorn has recently been updated to take advantage of the latest graphics and speed improvements in iOS 9 and the iPhone 6s. Developers FDG have impressed us not only with the game, but their support of iOS and the updates with just about every iOS update. If you like this kind of open world game, you won’t find better a better one.)
At first glance, Oceanhorn resembles Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, a 2003 Gamecube game which just received an HD re-release on Wii U. The more you play Oceanhorn, the more the similarities stand out. In both games, you play as a young adventurer armed with a sword and shield who sails between islands and conquers dungeons. You’ll also collect bombs, arrows, and pieces of heart containers to improve your offensive and defensive capabilities.
While it clearly uses Zelda as a template, Oceanhorn still feels like an original experience thanks to its excellent visuals and level design. The visual style is wonderfully vibrant, with 3-dimensional isometric levels that are carefully arranged like stacks of building blocks, providing the illusion of depth. Every island and dungeon is a well-crafted maze, with a series of complex puzzles and enemy encounters.

There’s no denying that this game takes a few cues from the isomorphic, Escher-like worlds of Monument Valley. But that’s a good thing. It’s a different game, but just as wonderfully atmospheric, relaxing, yet brain straining as Monument Valley.

In Ghosts of Memories you will explore the lands of ancient civilizations, full of undiscovered paths and mysterious puzzles based on tricky tiles. Think logically to solve all the quests and puzzles on your journey!
