Push : Game review

I discovered games from the developer ‘Rainbow Train’ a while back, Hook is one of my all time favourites from them still – check out my review here after reading about this one. This one is simply called ‘Push’ and is another cleverly crafted game that I reckon is a must if you like puzzle

100 PICS Game Review

Our 14 year old grandson put us onto this one and after playing it for a while I was hooked. The aim is simple, just work out what the picture is and enter the name – sounds simple and for some of the easier categories it is, but working out the tricky ones is a

Jigsaw Genius

The last jigsaw puzzle game (Real Jigsaw Puzzles Free) I reviewed has become the most popular game review on the site, so for all those jigsaw enthusiasts out there here’s another one you might enjoy playing. This one has a modern, easy to use interface and a range of options so you can easily control how you

Hook

As promised, here’s another puzzle game to add to your collection and keep you amused over the holidays. Hook is a little more challenging than the last game, Loop. This one involves ‘untangling’ lines and hooks from each other by turning switches. The game is similar in some ways to pickup sticks I guess but

Loop

It’s holiday season (well, at least it is here in Oz!) so time for some game reviews we reckon. Matt, our game guy has disappeared off the radar for a while, so I’ll review a couple of recent ones that I have just installed. The first, is called ‘Loop’ and it’s one of those minimalist

Word Search

This kind of puzzle game is still very popular among seniors. It is a good way to pass the time and can assist with brain function apparently. This free version has been on my tablet for months and I like the way that the board fits the screen size and the letters are clear and

Minesweeper Classic (Mines)

Remember this game on Windows? I know many people that have always enjoyed playing it and when I found this Android version I had to give it a try. To make it easier to use there is a scrolling and ‘zoomable’ game area and the toggle open cell or put a flag marker can be

Block Puzzle

For a while now, I’ve been trying to find a good Tetris ‘clone’ (or even an enjoyable ‘real’ Tetris version). I tried the Electronic Arts versions but didn’t find much enjoyment and like many commenters, I also had glitches and crashes. let alone the annoying ads. In the process though, I stumbled upon Block Puzzle,

Google Santa Tracker

Grandparents often see more of their grandchildren over the holiday period and if they are around before Christmas, maybe install the Santa Tracker app from Google to keep them amused for a while. As well as the Santa Tracker to follow his Redness’s progress as he delivers presents to all the good girls and boys

Real Jigsaw Puzzles Free

I recently saw an iPad app that a member of our local computer club showed me that enabled her to make jigsaw puzzles out of her photos and I thought ‘that’s great, I bet there’s a similar Android version’. Sure enough, I found this one and gave it a try. Real Jigsaw Puzzles Free lets us

Fit Brains Trainer

They say that the brain is just like any muscle – it needs regular exercise to stay fit and healthy. Brain training games are very popular with older users but can be used by anyone to check and improve their mental agility. Fit Brains Trainer is an app that records your training progress so you

Crosswords

Time for a game review I reckon. Matt has too much study and work to do so I’ll step into the breach and give it a try. Crossword puzzles are a staple amongst our generation and sales of puzzle books are very strong, so why not save some trees and have a go at the
