The puzzle game genre is right at the heart of the mobile gaming experience.
It fits the environment perfectly – small, largely static (or at least slow-paced) games that don’t require lavish visuals or complex controls, and which will reward however much time you’re able to commit to them.
It’s not surprising to find that the App Store is positively brimming with puzzle games, then.
They come in all shapes and sizes too, from old fashioned match threes to crazy experimental flights of fancy. And the ground in between those two extremes is vast.
While the puzzler genre is the most heavily subscribed out there, we’re not bored thanks to that sense of variety and adventure. There’s always something new to see.
This variety also means that we’ve left loads of great puzzlers off our list. Partly that’s in a bit to keep this list fresh, but also there are just so many of things out there.
Let us know what your favourite puzzlers are in the comments section below.
