Normally when we head to our mobiles, we're looking for a quick dose of entertainment to kill a few minutes: a social media catch-up, a mindless game, a Google search for something probably not that important.
But sometimes - just sometimes - we need something a bit more engaging. A bit more advanced. Something to whet our appetites for creativity, and stimulate our brains: quality entertainment that requires a bit more effort on our part.
Training your brain can be just as fun as other gaming, and who knows - you might actually learn something too! Read on to discover our favorite challenging games to make you think!
That Level Againis a truly original puzzle game containing more than 60 levels. The funny thing about this game is that all the levels look exactly the same. Wait, what? Yes, that's right.
The trick is that every one of them is solved differently, by using just your logic thinking. At the beginning of every stage, you'll be offered a clue and that's the only thing you need to care about.
Control buttons are located at the bottom of the screen: press the arrows to move and the right button to jump. It is easy, but you might encounter some surprises in the first few levels..
Number Chef is set in a weird restaurant where customers order numbers instead of food (because, you know, some people don't really know what's good). However, your task is to satisfy their strange wishes by combining the numbers together and reaching their goal.
The design is absolutely brilliant: graphics are excellent and usability is perfect and professional. And don't worry about running out of challenges: you have 135 levels to get frustrated. You won't need to pay for anything: just be patient, start all over, and try again.
Witty and with minimalist graphics, Pretentious Game is the story of a blue square who's madly in love with pink, another tiny square. You're not a mean person, so you want them together, right? Help them reunite by carefully reading the cryptic sentences written in every new level.
Use touch controls to overcome all the obstacles, think outside the box, and don't forget that you must bring blue and pink together no matter what.
Machinarium presents a polished and beautiful game which will attract fans of mystery and adventurous apps. In this highly challenge, you need to navigate across the screen and figure out the way to escape from every scene and see how the story unfolds.
Collect items you find along the way, think carefully about all the options available, and try out new things until you come up with the right solution to continue advancing through the game.
Once you start playing, you won't be able to stop: you'll be dying to know what happens next. The app includes some clues in case you get stuck. Don't forget to use them wisely!
Oh h1 is a logic puzzle game where the only thing you need to do is to complete the grid. You must keep in mind that you can't have three red and blue tiles next to each other, and that a full line must have as many red tiles as blue ones but be different at the same time. With those restrictions, try to figure out how to solve each puzzle!
The game is innovative and challenging, and the gameplay couldn't be simpler: just tap a tile to change it to red or blue. If you want to make the game more difficult, try changing the grid size.
