Pulma 3D: puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

When I scroll through the 250 new puzzle apps each week, I usually skip the ones with cute animal icons.

Recently Miikka Lyytikainen from Helsinki contacted me about his new puzzle app Pulma 3D Puzzle. (Finland is the home of many very good puzzle inventors.)

Pulma is the name of the owl. He's a time traveler and all of his equipment has been cut up into 3D jigsaw puzzles.

The sequence of assembling these puzzles is critical. In the past I've done a few dozen of these.
They're fun. I was skeptical that this type of puzzle could be made  for the ipad because these puzzles beg to be held with your hands and scrutinized.  Pulma 3D Puzzle does a very good job of this. The graphics are excellent.

A tutorial is given which explains how to rotate pieces and then slide them together.  Miikka has obviously spent an enormous amount of time developing this.

  1. Hi Tom,

    what do you mean by having done a few dozen of these in the past? Mechanical or virtual? We thought no one else has brought this concept into touch screen before.

    Miikka surely did an enormous amount of clever work, but others did, too! It was a team work.
