Lost Lands - a Treasure Hunt Puzzle Game: puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1

Ryan Ding recently contacted me about his puzzle app game Lost Lands - a Treasure Hunt Puzzle Game. It's very similar to the game Turnstile from ThinkFun:  What's different? Lost Lands has a bigger board and a whopping 168 puzzle levels.

The object is to move your man from the top left corner to the bottom right corner by swinging through some gates at the intersections.  Note: the gates only move 90 degrees, so it's possible that you won't be able to push a gate.

Right now, I've done 38 of the 168 levels. I got stuck on a bunch of them, but persevered.
Here's how the game could be improved - graphically. The squares - make them smaller and make the intersections larger.
Lost Lands is a good puzzle game app. Young puzzlers will like this.

  1. I don't really agree about the similarity with Turnstile. It seems to me that the only thing in common is that you operate doors by pushing them.
    In Turnstile you have to move four pieces, and the doors can rotate the whole 360 degrees, only being blocked by the other pieces. In Lost Lands, you have only one character to move and the movement of the doors is limited by the fact that they can only turn 90 degrees.
