5 best puzzle games in 2017 for your Android device
This is a fun little game that lets you create interesting objects using just a couple of shadows displayed on your screen. Further, you can play a variety of different modes, including arcade, adding a bit of a spice to the equation. The fundamental aspect of the game is to join the two shadows and create innovative objects out of it. There are over 100 levels to play from, and the game only gets tougher after each level. So you can be assured that this is a pretty challenging game.
Luckily, the developers let you play the first 14 levels for free, and you will have to shell out $2.99 for the remaining levels, which doesn’t seem like a bad bargain, to be honest. As you would expect, the game has received pretty favorable reviews from experts, which makes this a must try if you’re into puzzle games. Be sure to check it out.
It’s always good when we have a bit of a backstory for a game before we get to play it. LIMBO is one such game. It revolves around a kid who has lost his sister and is in the constant search for her. You’ll only have to scroll sideways on this game, and it’s a bit short for a puzzle game. But given that there’s pretty addictive gameplay involved here, we really don’t mind the duration of the game.
Even though it’s a paid game, you have the liberty to play the demo first before investing your money in it. This is what makes it a very interesting game to check out, as it keeps you hooked. We won’t be surprised if you finish the game in one sitting, which is what I did as well. The full version of the game will set you back by $4.99, so it’s not exactly cheap. You can check it out from the Play Store right away.
This is yet another puzzle game which keeps your mind tested, and assures you of some interesting challenges along the way. You’re basically handling a bunch of fungus or algae here, and are required to cut or slash it to make it grow on the other side. The resulting experience is incredibly interesting. It’s important to note that the game can get on your nerves at times, especially if you’re impatient. So it’s not meant for those who like to finish a game pretty quickly.
If you’re too exhausted with the pacing of the game, you can opt to choose some additional playing modes, including some that focus on speed. Overall, Mushroom 11 is a fairly exciting game and something that gives you the motivation to keep playing for prolonged intervals. The game will set you back by $4.99, which is pretty reasonable considering the kind of experience it offers.
This game revolves around nature with a very simple premise – to help a plant grow. You will have to periodically cut the plant/tree to guide it in the right direction. Overall, it’s one of those soothing apps that will give you immense satisfaction when you finish. There are a total of 48 levels to play here, which will help you get a better understanding of the game.
What I personally like about this game is that there are no in-app purchases here. This means that it’s a level playing field for practically everybody who purchases the game. You will obviously need a bit of patience to finish this game, so don’t expect to finish Prune in one sitting.
Another neat feature is the ability to sync your in-game progress between multiple devices, perhaps using your Play Games account. So if you happen to leave the game midway on your smartphone, you can just as easily pick it up on your Android tablet. The game will set you back by $2.99, which is considerably cheaper compared to some other puzzle games out there. Be sure to check it out.
The Room (1, 2, and 3)
The list would be incomplete if we left out the popular Room franchise (made by Fireproof Games) out of the list. Known to be one of the most popular puzzle games in the world, the trio of games have been around for quite some time now, and without much competition. You’ll be very wrong to think that this game is all about the puzzle. There’s a nice little back story here as well, helping you along the way as you unlock the puzzles.
While the gameplay is pretty much the same between the three games, the fact that it comes with incredible graphics and some different back stories makes for a very exciting experience for puzzle lovers. Room Three spices things up a little with an alternate ending along with the main ending, offering you the chance to replay the game multiple times. The three installments of the Room are priced at $0.99, $1.99, and $3.99 respectively. Getting all three together will set you back by about $7, which isn’t much considering the kind of gameplay it offers.
If you’re a fan of puzzle games, we cannot suggest the Room series highly enough. It has received innumerable accolades and continues to be a fan favorite even today.
