Description:

You wake up, alone, on a strange island full of puzzles that will challenge and surprise you.

You don’t remember who you are, and you don’t remember how you got here, but there’s one thing you can do: explore the island in hope of discovering clues, regaining your memory, and somehow finding your way home.

The Witness is a single-player game in an open world with dozens of locations to explore and over 500 puzzles. This game respects you as an intelligent player and it treats your time as precious. There’s no filler; each of those puzzles brings its own new idea into the mix. So, this is a game full of ideas.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – September 20th

Yes, it’s Wednesday. It’s been Wednesday for quite a while now, depending on where you are. It might not be Wednesday in some places. How does time even work? I have no idea. Go ask a grown up, we’re here to talk about games.

And on Wednesday (which is the day that today is), we talk about games that are on sale. Five of them. The best five that are currently going for cheap on the App Store. So that’s exactly what we’re going to do right now.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you’ve got your own suggestions, feel free to toss them haphazardly into the comments section at the bottom of the article.

Scurvy Scallywags – Free

There are a lot of match-stuff puzzlers on the App Store. A good deal of them are complete garbage. This one isn’t though. It’s full of pirates and silliness, and its full name is far too long to type. The board moves, you’re trying to create the perfect sea shanty, and the whole thing is really rather wonderful.

kubic 2.0

Device: iOS Universal
Category: Games
Price: $ 1.99 -> Free, Version: 2.0 (iTunes)

Description:

***** #1 Puzzle Game in over 20 Countries! *****

***** This quirky puzzle game bends the limits of space and reality to make you create structures that, in theory, should be impossible to replicate. – Pocket Gamer 8/10 *****

kubic is a unique optical illusion puzzle game based on M.C. Escher’s art, impossible objects and other geometric designs. The object is to construct the goal configuration from a number of pieces.

Presented in a simple, clean design and minimalistic art, kubic is a premium game with over 60 escher-esque puzzles.

When you click on a piece, it pops to the front-most layer, and may overlap other pieces. When you combine the pieces, they do not merge. If there are extra pieces, you may hide them behind the others. If you are stuck on a puzzle you can simply skip it and re-visit at a later time. Rest assured, all puzzles can be solved but beware, some puzzles are hard! Just take your time…

If you truly get stuck, there is a in-game hint system. You can use it to get started or even get the whole puzzle solved.

Tip: It helps to plan ahead and build figures from back to front.

Levels divided in 6 groups:
• Ocean (Blue) – "2D" Shapes are basically two-dimensional arrangements.
• Desert (Orange) – "3D" Shapes appear to be three-dimensional, but remember to think in two dimensions.
• Mountain (Purple) – "Convex/Concave" These optical illusions are inspired by Escher’s famous "Convex and Concave" lithograph.
• Sky (Green) – "Up/Down" These optical illusions are inspired by the Penrose Triangle featured in Escher’s lithograph "Waterfall”.
• Escher (Mixed) – Based on letter designs that spell out MC ESCHER.
• Print – Based on the printable magazine version of Convex-Concave puzzles.

Kubic is localized and supports 12 languages including English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish

Game supports iCloud for progress syncing between devices.

Convex Concave puzzles from the Heaven and Earth game are included with permission. The puzzles were designed by Scott Kim, Puzzlemaster (scottkim.com), and the Heaven & Earth team.

Enjoy!

What’s New

◉ Layer lock button, tap to lock current layer order while dragging the pieces.
◉ Reduced game install size.
◉ Engine updates.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – September 15th

It’s Friday. I’m going to go climb some mountains later, but in the meantime I suppose I’ll create some super hot content for you. That’s just the kinda guy I am. Also it’s my job, so, I guess that’s a reason as well.

Anyway, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. And when I say we, I mean me. There’s no one else here. I just like to give off the illusion that I’m working in a high-stakes newsroom, instead of in a corner of my flat surrounded by empty pop bottles.

Fun. You can click on the emboldened names of the games below to head off to the App Store and download them. And if you’ve seen anything you think people should be getting, feel free to stick it in the comments at the bottom of the article. Cool. Cool cool cool.

Iron Marines

A rich and incredibly well thought out RTS that takes the genre, shakes it up, and makes it fit wonderfully on mobile. Slick, full of things to do, and without the menus and fiddling that normally put people off this sort of thing.
