Stack Me Challenge by eDoc LLC FREE

Stack Me Challenge comes from eDoc LLC.  It's a point scoring game.  The object is to slide all the tiles up/down/right/left and not fill up the board.

In the beginner mode, only primary colors are used.

In the advanced mode, primary colors merge, and points are awarded for only secondary colors combining.  

In the beginner mode, I had to intentionally lose.

In the advanced mode, I'm in the middle of 1 game.  My score is 1800. I would be #2 on the leaderboard, but I think I have to lose for that to show up.

This is an interesting game. However, the game is unending.  Multiple times I made a silly mistake and easily recovered. 

The #1 score is over 6000, which I'm estimating took at least 5 hours to play.

Drop Drop! S by Adem KAYIRCI FREE

Drop Drop! S comes from Adem KAYIRCI.  It's a point scoring game.
The object is to drag the 3 pieces onto the board to match colors and score points.  The pieces fall upwards from the bottom.  Each match yields points, the tiles disappear and you're ready for the next round.

Adem is definitely one of the more interesting puzzle app developers who is still going strong.  I particularly liked his game cohex (see link below).

Sixy Sudoku by PZZL.com FREE



Sixy Sudoku comes from Peter Ritmeester at PZZL.com.  I know what you're thinking: Not another Sudoku variation!


This version has a lot of charm, because the grids are so small.

Also, I really like the element where each shaded region must contain 1-6.

There's a 'wacky' version which is similar to 'jigsaw sudoku' and is also known as 'squiggly sudoku'.

Best of all: each version has difficulty levels ranging from very easy to very hard.

There are 500 levels, but there is no system of checking off which ones you've done.

I've bought 3 of the puzzle books at Peter's website.  I've shared some of the puzzles with my math students.

Nice job Peter!

Update 10/7/2019: Peter informed me that there is an update to the game that includes level progress.
