Mushroom 11

Unique puzzle adventure game perfectly suited to touch screens

I first saw Mushroom 11 running on an iPad what must have been over two years ago. It’s perfectly suited to touch screen controls and feels foreign on desktop. But the current climate means indie developers marketing strategy, as dumb as it is, is to release on PC first. Lots of reasons to do so, but inability to figure out how to market to mobile users effectively is a big part of it. With the whole marketing strategy now being bring a PC game to mobile and people will pay a bit more.

Enough about that, how about this game. It’s a really well done puzzle game where the players multitouch pushes move an amoeba like blob through a series of levels. Really well done, very unique, and fun!

After the End: Forsaken Destiny

After the End is a beautiful story-based puzzle adventure

Nexon has released a very well done puzzle adventure in After the End: Forsaken Destiny. Great graphics and interesting and challenging puzzles. One of the the things that impressed me the most are the variety of the puzzles. From sound puzzles to memory puzzles, even arcade action puzzles. If you are looking for a new puzzle adventure — or maybe something light to quench your thirst for that new Zelda, give After the End a shot.

Evergrow

Evergrow is a polished and challenging puzzler

The premise of Evergrow is simple — combine the same color blocks to create a larger and larger square. The level based game play keeps the game from getting stale or too difficult too quickly. It all seems pretty standard, but something happened when I was playing the game, Evergrow grew on me. The little touches like haptic feedback, customization, and a great soundtrack set this apart from other simple puzzlers. Give it a shot!

It’s a great introduction to the logic used in programming and a fun little game with great personality. Which is expected considering the team that created this.

Mekorama

3D robot puzzle game Mekorama is fun, charming, and unique

From Martin Magni, the developer of the great Odd Bot Out, Mekorama hit the App Store this week. This charming puzzle game has the player guide a robot through a series of very unique 3D puzzles. The puzzles have shades of Monument Valley without the Escher inspired vibe.

One of the features that really sets this game apart from others is the integrated level editor. This lets players create their own levels and share them via a simple QR code integrated image. Take a look at the new levels shared on Twitter with the #Mekorama hashtag. I’ve even created one to test the path finding skills of that little robot.

Mekorama is free in the App Store with a pay what you want price model.
