After playing, you are sure to appreciate different colors. It is worth picking up as evidenced by our Blendoku review giving it a perfect 5/5 Woofs.
Fireproof Games’ first title is a success as it received numerous awards. Overall, the mechanics are pretty good. Although it doesn’t have any dialogue, The Room sets the tone with its gorgeous and puzzling visuals. The mechanical puzzle-solving is unique in its own right that will stimulate you mentally. Read our review of The Room where we rated it only 4 Woofs because of wonky rotation mechanics and we wish it’s a bit longer. Nevertheless, it is still a must-have if you’re a puzzle fan who loves mystery and suspense.
Kiip developed this beautiful, straight-forward, enjoyable, and free puzzle game for us to enjoy. 7×7 is the ideal pick up & play puzzler. Though it doesn’t have leaderboards and might get repetitive after a while, this simple Android game is still addictive. Matching blocks isn’t new but with its crisp design, it will pique your interest for quite some time. If you have an Android-powered gadget, you should download 7×7 pronto as suggested by my colleague, Levi Fowler. Read his 7×7 review here. Oh, before I forget, it only takes less than a couple of megabytes on your hard drive space, so there’s plenty enough of room in your storage.
