Linko - Relaxing Loop by Kyung-Hun Kim FREE

Linko - Relaxing Loop comes from Kyung-Hun Kim. It's one of those 'rotate all the lines, curves, hooks & nodes within each square and make everything connect.
What I like about this game are the hooks.  

I solved 64 levels in about 45 minutes.  But that included time watching ads. Yeah, these are not hard. But they're still fun. 

I'm guessing there are 100 levels.

Meridian 157: Chapter 1 $1.99

Meridian 157: Chapter 1 comes from NovaSoft Interactive. The Prologue was free.
The mystery continues: you're on this abandoned lab on an island off Alaska.  Lots of 'point and click' things to do. Lots of puzzles which open desk drawers, safes etc.
Don't be a Puzzle Purist!  There are numerous walkthroughs posted on youtube. I was looking everywhere for a silly triangle block. I couldn't find it in the game room. It ended up being in the basement near the generator. Walkthroughs save you the time to find stuff.  In terms of solving the actual puzzles, it's still okay to use the walkthroughs.
This game is actually quite long.  I've completed the Prologue and now Chapter 1. So I'm moving on to Chapter 2.

Meridian 157: Prologue FREE


Meridian 157: Prologue comes from NovaSoft Interactive. 
It's a 'point and click' Myst-type puzzle.  The basic story is that You get to an island off Alaska and are in an abandoned lab.  Naturally, there are tons of little puzzles.  Interesting: you can set the game for easier/harder puzzles and with/without hints.
This first game in a series is free.  I've already completed this and Chapter 1, which isn't free.

Some of the puzzles are quite good.  Some exist only so that you can open a safe and find....a hammer.

Strange Case: The Alchemist FREE


I don't know who Labeledman is but he's made an interesting game called Strange Case: The Alchemist. 

You are a detective and your mission is to find clues, pick up tools and of course solve puzzles.

It's not a very long game.  Maybe 4 hours.
Look at image #3 with the crazy man locked up.  I was predicting, based on the unused shackles in another room, that I would have to drag him out of the cell and hook him up to the shackles and then pull one of his teeth.  Alas, getting a tooth from him was much easier.
Overall, it's a fun game. It's free. No ads. Well, I did pay $2 to get rid of the ads.

I look forward to other games from Labeledman.

Bikit by Leon Keeley FREE

Bikit is an outstanding puzzle app from Leon Keeley. It's minimalist, which means the rules are not explained.

The object is to get the blue & green circles to their targets.  Look at the 2nd image.  You need to find 4 points that make a rectangle.  Connect them all at once and all of the circles will shift 1 space along the rectangle.

There are 35 levels. The first hard ones are 10 & 11. 25 took me about 25 tries!

Bikit has a 'I get the idea right away' feel to it.  But gradually, you start to realize that certain actions will lead to dead ends.

Yo Leon: I solved all the levels. Then I paid $.99.  Can't wait for your next game.

Puzzlums Free


Puzzlums is not a hard game. The object is to slide the marbles to the correct ring & sector.
If a ring is complete, it disappears and then it gets much easier. 
I was not expecting to solve almost 40 levels. It's not challenging enough. But it's well made and is very relaxing.

Logic Wiz Sudoku & Variations FREE


Logic Wiz Sudoku & Variations has a wide variety of sudoku versions.
Each version comes with many levels in beginner, easy, moderate, hard mode.
My favorite version is Sandwich Sudoku.
It's free, comes with ads, but is very well done.

Milo and the Magpies $1.99

 Milo and the Magpies comes from Second Maze, the makers of Mitoza, which I blogged about this time last year. Here's the link.
Milo is a cat who has lost his way. Milo must get home by crossing the backyards of 7 or 8 neighbors.  Each backyard comes with its own set of unique puzzles.
The game takes about 2 hours to play.  $2 is cheap.
I heard about this game via the Rusty Lake people.
