Future Sense

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

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.

zombie match defense

What if you crossed zombies with match-3 and lane defense? Zombie Match Defense!

This game by Jake Sones is the result of a bet, probably made over multiple drinks, that two over used game genres couldn’t be combined and made to be fun. Jake thought he could do it and I think he has succeeded.

Zombie Match Defense turns out to be a fresh take on match-3 games. With the combination of the two genres some new mechanics pop-up that are cool. The game includes both a map-based progression mode and also mode I prefer, the endless mode which is unlocked after a couple levels. And I think I can honestly say that Zombie Match Defense is the best zombie match-3 lane defense ever made. And it’s also lots of fun.

Pokaboo

It must be halloween, even the puzzles have ghosts in Pokaboo

Pokaboo is a fine little puzzler that’s easy to solve, but hard to solve in the minimum number of moves. In Pokaboo a ghost moves around pushing color blobs — the colors will join together when matching colors are above or to the sides of one another. The puzzle is solved when all colors are matched up.  And while that’s pretty easy to do — it’s really tough to do so in the minimum number of moves.

Pokaboo is a fun little puzzle that could use from an in-game hint system. But overall it’s a fun little premium diversion not weighed down by complicated controls, IAP, or silly currency systems.

The Beggar's Ride

Great Mobile Platformer Beggar’s Ride Magically Appears

It’s always nice to see a main character I can identify with. In Beggar’s Ride a fat old man with gray hair and a beard has gained magical powers via a discovered mask that allows vision and control of things normal mortals can not see. These special powers lead to solving special puzzles along the way. So, yeah, a puzzle platformer.

This is one of the more beautiful platformers on mobile — and that’s saying something. It’s a great sit down and play game, well worth picking up. Premium game with no IAP. Total lack of Jim Carrey is a bonus.

Four Quarters has released a new very puzzling game through Bulkypix today. Please, Don’t Touch Anything starts when you are left in charge of a mysterious control panel when a worker goes on a bathroom break.

As things start to go wrong, more and more controls are revealed with cryptic instructions on how to continue. It’s like a super complex game of Simon where if you lose, you pay the ultimate penalty.

Ghosts of Memories

Ghosts of Memories - An Adventure Puzzler Dunked in a Monumental Valley

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.

Ghosts of Memories is an adventure puzzle game located in 4 stunningly beautiful worlds. 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!
