Black Box Chess was an oddly addictive little puzzle game from the 1990's, and now the best-ever reboot of the game is available for your mobile device. Chess pieces are hiding all over a chessboard, and you can click around to give yourself some clues. But don't get too many clues, as they cut into your points. See how many pieces you can find before time runs out. Also includes "Zen" mode for more relaxed no-time-limit play.
As an added bonus, you can test your brain on hexagonal chessboards with all-new rules on piece movement.
At first the game seems like a simple "don't make the wrong roll" kind of game. But there is more to it than that. You need to carefully manage your discard dice as well as the pairs you can make. It seems a bit frustrating at first, as you can never seem to get a positive score. But with a little planning, you can do it.
Your first scoring pair will summon the skulls. Later pairs will clear them. Rows with skulls are worth -100 points. Once the skulls are cleared, you can start making positive numbers. Good luck!

Here is a clever little solitaire card game. It works a bit like a sliding tile puzzle, but the playing card "pieces" do not just move in four directions. The cards move like chess pieces, depending on their values. Try to organize the deck in as few moves as you can. You will learn new strategies as you play. You will also find it hard to stop, as the game is surprisingly addictive. This is another simple, yet very devious, little mobile puzzle from The Code Zone.
The web and social-network version of this game has been played millions of times, and now the best-ever version of this devious circuit-building puzzle game is available to take with you anywhere!
The rules are quite simple, "connect all the wires, and light up the lights". And the wires are all in the right place. They just need to be rotated a bit so that everything is powered up. Unfortunately, that is not as easy as it sounds. Every puzzle has a solution, but some are not very obvious. Features "undo", "restart" and "give up" to help you solve the puzzles.
Once you give it a try, you will be hooked. Have fun!
In the spirit of ConFusebox comes another great little devious "build a circuit" puzzle game. The object of the puzzle is simple -- connect up all the wires and light up all the lights. The lights and the power source are in place, but you have to figure out how to place the wires. You have plenty of clues in the numbered circles, but it will take a little thought to get them all in the right place. Placing the obvious wires will often give you clues on how to place wires elsewhere, but sometimes you will just have to take a chance.
And once you have the hang of ConstructBox, you can play the variation "ConjectureBox", which is similar but only allows you to connect to cells that are powered. It is no longer just a matter of connecting up the obvious wires. You will need a little more planning-ahead to solve it.
ConstructBox and ConjectureBox are great little puzzle games for you puzzle-solving fanatics. Once you give it a try, you will be hooked. Have fun!
Roll as many times as you like, but be careful that you don't get yourself stuck! Roll the dice and swap pairs to count down rockets and gain points. But your scores do not count until you commit them. Roll as much as you want, but you must be able to count down a rocket. If you cannot count down a rocket, then you must cancel your turn and lose your progress.
Can you count down lots of rockets, or will you lose your nerve?

Zombie Kitten Attack was a fun little puzzle game about bad movies. And what is the point of making fun of bad movies without endless sequels and reboots?
In this "turn the tables" sequel to Zombie Kitten Attack, you take the role of one of the kittens who has transcended from the fantasy-world of bad movies into the reality-world of bad moviemakers. Humans are all hiding from you, and you have to chow down on them until none are left. You have a vague idea of where the humans are, but without a little luck and your mutant zombie powers, you will not be able to find everyone.
Good luck and have fun eating their brainzes!

Actually you won't. You are 100% doomed. Still, you might make it a few rounds.
