Decent interface, flawed puzzle logic
Jason Keller write:
This app's interface is nice looking and generally well-conceived, but is completely lacking solution detection. When you solve a puzzle, no indication is given as to the correctness of the solution. You have to bring up the puzzle options and click "Show Solution" (which then alters the current puzzle) and compare the given solution with yours by memory. This is just as well, as much of the puzzle logic is fundamentally flawed and the programmed solutions often arbitrary. Almost all of the arabic numeral (and most of the roman numeral) equation puzzles have more than one valid solution. Additionally, several of the "move two matches" equation puzzles can be solved more efficiently with a single match movement, which is sort of bad form for puzzles such as these. The geometric puzzles are similarly riddled with inconsistent logic, poor definitions (e.g. "diamond" shape?) and multiple correct solutions. The app description claims there are 25 puzzles, but there are more than that (I quit at around 30). The free-form interface is kind of cool, but I would urge the developers to pick their puzzles more carefully, change the instructions and/or gameplay, add (multiple-)solution detection, or all of the above.
