Magnet Balls by Gennadii Umanets FREE

Magnet Balls comes from Gennadii Umanets.  The object is to drag the blue and green magnetic balls onto the red spots below.

There balls definitely have a quasi magnetic feel.  Try grabbing one of the blue balls in the middle and watch them bunch up.

I don't know how many levels there are, but I've done about 20.

This reminds me: there were 2 mechanical puzzles that had many magnets. Both were designed by Chris Morgan, a prominent member of the International Puzzle Party.

Duo Maze by seifeddine bouhlel FREE

 Duo Maze comes from seifeddine bouhlel.  The object is to merge the blue and red balls. 
Focus on the red ball.  As you move the red ball, the blue ball moves in the opposite direction at all times.

I'm not sure how many levels there are.  I've done about 20.  It's okay!

Line Master Puzzle by KAU, Inc FREE

 Line Master Puzzle comes from KAU, Inc.  The object is to fill the grid from start to finish. We've seen this type of game many times.
I did the 90 Normal levels very quickly. Maybe 15 minutes.

The 90 Hard levels had some interesting elements:
The arrows force movement to the end.
Wormholes. Figuring out which wormhole to enter/exit is key.
A vertical or horizontal: the path must pass over that square and not make a turn.

I solved all the 90 hard levels and then the 90 Pro levels.  The Pro levels did not have any additional features. Drat.  But they were still fun.

Definitely a good game.

Supreme Court Rules Against Apple Regarding App Store

read this article.  I think that the ruling means that everybody who ever paid for an app on the App Store will be given a refund, probably in the form of a credit toward future purchases.

Exciting news for puzzlers and the developers.

Sisyphus Mini Tables are now for sale!

Trinagon Sample by lucas pradlwarter FREE

Trinagon Sample comes from Lucas Pradlwarter.  The object is to rotate sets of 6 triangles in order to rearrange the dark purple triangles to match a given pattern.

Tap once on a circle and the surrounding 6 triangles will rotate clockwise. Tap twice - anti clockwise.

This game reminds me of Mad Triad which was a failed mechanical puzzles because it broke too often. (I think I have a copy.)

Unfoldit by Clifford Panos FREE

Unfoldit comes from Clifford Panos.  Imagine a square piece of paper has been folded and some holes have been punched.  Can you determine where the holes would be if the paper were unfolded?  That's the object.
Sure, some of the folds are easy: horizontal & vertical and perfectly diagonally.  But things get complicated when there are multiple folds. I particularly like the challenges where a vertical fold is followed by a partial diagonal fold.

I solved all the 'easy' levels. 272 of them!  I waited about a month for Clifford to upload the medium levels.  Of which, there are some 500 levels!  They're much tougher!

The graphics are outstanding. This game is a winner!

eceo by Adem KAYIRCI FREE

eceo comes from Adem KAYIRCI.  The object is to get all the switches to be either on or off.  Each individual switch has its own controls.  
Look at the third image.  The switch on the upper left may control the entire row.  The switch on the bottom left my control a diagonal.

These puzzles can get pretty difficult.

There are 100 levels. I've solved about 40 of them.

Below is a list of other games from Adem.  My favorite of the bunch is cohex.
