Let me tell you this. If you’re a big fan of logic games like me, then this 7 game bundle is for you. Developed by the german company App Zap, this game box will keep you on your phone for hours in a row. The app provides 7 games: Paratroopers, Parking Lot, Labyrinth, Stickies, Fill The Pot, Flip It and Arithmetic. Let’s have a look at each of them.
More of a fast tapping type of game, than a logic one, Paratroopers tests your speed in hitting these little guys over the head. Once you touch them, their parachutes open and they don’t fall down splattered to a bloody death. The little soldiers deploy from an airplane in waves and you have to tap them as fast as you can. Although my fingers aren’t too robust, I found it pretty difficult to manage tapping them one by one. All in all, it doesn’t require much (if any) logic and I think it’s intended more to relax you between the other brain teasers.
This certainly wins the pot as the most logic game in the bundle, as well as my personal favorite. The goal of the game is to get the red car over to the exit. Easy enough you would say if it weren’t for the 10 cars blocking the way. In order to escape the dreaded parking lot you must maneuver the cars around to clear your path. The catch is that they only move back and forth in the direction they’re facing. The game makes you start with the easy difficulty setting and as you clear levels, the medium, hard and expert difficulties unlock. At level 46 (had a hard time solving this one) the difficulty meter was showing that I was about half-way through the easy levels, so it’s safe to say that Parking Lot offers hundreds of mind-straining puzzles.
The point of this game is to move through all the squares, thus making them red. You start from a fixed position and then you must cover all the squares without raising your finger from the touch screen. To make it more interesting, you can’t pass through the same square twice, so you must plan your path carefully. Well, not that carefully though, because if you mess up you can restart the level for as many times as you want. The name serves the game right as you work your way through the labyrinth with classic snake -like moves.
This game is more of an acquired taste. The point of the game is to score as many points as you can by creating rectangles that have same colored sticky-notes as corners. The bigger the rectangle the higher the score. Once you cover all the stickies, the check sign appears on them and you can move to the other level. Not much to say about this one as it’s not as tough or engaging as the others, but a pretty decent game as it requires a bit of strategy in flipping the stick-notes.
FILL THE POT
Fill The Pot is very cool puzzle type of game. You get pots that you must place underneath specific faucets in order to fill them. Each faucet delivers the quantity of water that is marked on it so you have to organize your recipients in manner that holds all of the water. If the liquid flows more than the pot can hold (like in the image above), you fail. After completing about 30 levels I was still in the easy difficulty setting so this game must also provide over one hundred levels to make the most of your logic skills.
As the name suggests, that’s exactly what you need to do. You flip the tiles around so that all of them become white. The thing is that when you flip a tile, all the other tiles that are in contact with it also flip. This makes the game a lot harder than it sounds. All the flipping around going on will confuse you to hell and you’ll probably end up tapping every damn square, perhaps then succeeding. Joke aside, it’s a highly logical and strategic game that we’ll keep you playing (flipping) for hours.
How good is your math? Perfect? Then let’s test it out. How, you might ask? By playing Arithmetic of course. All you have to do is select the proper mathematical symbol between the numbers so that you get the result at the end. To be frank, I never was the fastest at calculus but the first two difficulty settings, easy and medium, are a piece of cake. You can pretty much guess the right answer in a matter of seconds just by looking at the how big are the numbers regarding to the result. The hard level though is a whole other story. Most of the times you’ll actually have to do the math. So if you’re one of those people who like to do sum up some numbers before breakfast, then this game is right up your alley.
