top logic by Brad Hayes

 Brad Hayes recently contacted me about his newest puzzle top logic.  Brad is the author of 2 other puzzle apps: Route-Out Puzzle from 2013 and Route-Out 2: A Thinking Puzzle from 2015.  I loved them both.
The objective is to place various chess-like pieces (missile launchers) on the grid to fire their missiles into the castles and other missile launchers. A chain reaction must take place.  

Of course there are brick walls which are blockers.
Some castles need multiple missiles to bring down.

These puzzles get hard pretty fast!

Brad has the right attitude: he's creating puzzle apps as a hobby, with no expectation of making any real money.

This game reminds me of Combination from 2012.

Blockuku by Quan Trong FREE

 Blockuku comes from Quan Trong. The object is to place the shapes into the grid to match the numbers on the horizontal and vertical axes.
There are 78 levels and they go pretty fast. Lots of easy levels.  At the moment, I've done about 65. They're getting tougher now.

What could be better:
1. Graphics: change the color scheme every so often.
2. Each grid is a square. This could sometimes be a rectangle.

Initiative Q: not a puzzle

Puzzlers: this is not a puzzle. But it's a free offer to get free cyber coins in a new currency. I've gone through their webpage. Seems to me that it has a legitimate shot at catching on.  Signing up will gain you instant free coins. When others sign up that you refer, you'll get additional coins.  When all the coins are distributed, then they commence actually using Qs as real money. Pyramid scheme? Not really, because you're not spending money. Waste of time? Yeah, but it takes about 5 minutes to sign up.

Initiative Q is an attempt by ex-PayPal guys to create a new payment system instead of credit cards that were designed in the 1950s. The system uses its own currency, the Q, and to get people to start using the system once it's ready they are allocating Qs for free to people that sign up now (the amount drops as more people join - so better to join early). Signing up is free and they only ask for your name and an email address. There's nothing to lose but if this payment system becomes a world leading payment method your Qs can be worth a lot. If you missed getting bitcoin seven years ago, you wouldn't want to miss this.

Falling Moods by Marina Makarevskaya FREE

Marina Makarevskaya recently contacted me about her new puzzle app game Falling Moods. The object is to tap on the emoji faces on top and have them fall through the cracks to the bottom.

Landing on a solid yellow arrow will make that arrow move 1 space. 
The striped arrows vanish after being hit.
The half/half arrows change direction after being hit.

There are 20 levels and I'm stuck on level 11, at the moment.

Interesting game!
