The House of da Vinci

[Sponsor] The House of Da Vinci on mobile lets you solve puzzles based on Da Vinci’s own designs

We’d like to thank our sponsor for this week, The House of Da Vinci by Blue Brain Games. There’s a reason Leonardo Da Vinci is the only renaissance figure who routinely shows up in video games you know. With his remarkable inventiveness and genius for creative problem-solving, Da Vinci was a gamer through and through. He was just born 500 hundred years too soon. Thankfully, there are studios like Blue Brain Games to bring him to life in videogame form. The House of Da Vinci, which comes to us courtesy of a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, is a puzzler that seeks to channel the artistry and innovation of its title character.
 
You play as one of Da Vinci’s more promising apprentices, and you have the challenging task of trying to work out where the hell he’s gone. Was he assassinated by the church? Who knows. Has he quietly gone into a retirement? Perhaps. Did he accidentally invent a shrink ray and shrink himself down to the size of an dustmite? Probably not. Da Vinci’s workshop looks beautiful, thanks to some impressive 3D graphics, and the in-game environment is crammed with all the elaborate machines and crazy inventions you’d expect to find in the workplace of a renaissance genius.

forma.8 GO

Forma.8 Go is gorgeous, fun, and out now on iOS.

Forma.8 Go is a Metroidvania type puzzle platformer with an amazing visual style. Sort of reminds me of a less physicsy version of Badland. But the timed puzzles are there and while the controls aren’t buttery smooth, they are pretty good for a virtual stick game. A fun game for sure.

Poly Bridge

Poly Bridge, the best bridge builder is out, but incomplete on mobile (so far)

Poly Bridge is out now on iOS, and it’s good to have it! It’s a great game and many seem to agree that it’s the best bridge builder game available. But the iOS versions, so far, is missing the sandbox mode. I would hope that it’s coming soon in an update. If you are all interested in physics puzzlers, grab this one. (Note: the video is for the PC version, I have yet to see a trailer for the mobile version, the developer Dry Cactus isn’t that great at marketing…)

FRAMED 2

Amped up more of the what I loved in the prequel Framed 2

Framed 2 is numbered as a sequel, yet it’s noted as a prequel. Controversy! Framed 2 is really just more of what we loved in the original — something we’ve been getting a lot of lately. Framed 2 continues to rearrange the comic tiles to change the story and progress super unique gameplay. Overall it’s safe, good, and amped up a bit from Framed. Everything seems smoother, more active, more real. Very well done puzzle game.
