Puzzled madth3’s profile

I spent several years away from real PC gaming and I only played casual Flash games. When I came back to use my Steam and GOG accounts I hoarded tons of games from bundles and sales. Now it’s time to actually play those games.

I like a bit of everything except multiplayer and war themed games. I particularly enjoy logic puzzles and adventure.

I try to switch genres and length of games. Usually I’m playing shorter games along a more time demanding one.

I used to play match-3 games a lot so I was glad to have won this game on SG and, in fact, on this group. Thanks to heilurmes for this game!

It’s a decent game where you have make matches involving every cell in the game. Once you use all, a speciall block appears and you have to take to a certain position. The interesting part is that you can only move the block through certain regions. You can rotate the board and you will need to do so in order to get the block to where it needs to go. I don’t remember seeing rotation used like this so that was a small novelty.

Every time you finish a board the game shows a completion percentage for the whole game. That’s how I noticed this game was shorter than other games in the genre and decided to finish it on the weekend.

A good game but there are more interesting alternatives.

Excellent puzzle game.

This game continues with the story of the first game and if you have not played that you should it because it is a great game and you won’t be left wondering how you got to the starting point of this.

The mechanics are the same with the slight difference that you’ll go through different environments and in each one there are several areas to interact with, as opposed the the boxes/tables of the first.

Productions values are the same and the game worked flawlessly for me.

The game gets darker/creepier than the first one but I loved it for that too.

The latest Quell games is just as good as the previous ones. Perhaps there is not as much innovation but, unless you just played the other ones, I don’t think you’ll feel bored.
This one has more levels so it was worth the release price, in my opinion.

This game feels like a smaller, simpler version of SpaceChem. You have several pieces of machinery at your disposition to move orbs from one place to another in a programatically fashion. It’s not the game of the year but I recommend it a lot if you’re into that kind of logic assembling.

I had started this game last month and I went and finished it, regardless of this month’s category.

A simple concept, good puzzles and it ends before it gets boring. I won’t be playing more daily levels but I do recommend the game if you like logic puzzles.

Another short one from my Won on SG list!

Message Quest is a charming adventure with good and interesting graphics, nice music, simple puzzles and a couple of “battles”. Some achievements can be missed the first time but you can go back and play any chapter so that’s not a problem if you care about those.

Oh, and the soundtrack can be downloaded for free as DLC. I’m adding it to my background playlist.

Moonlight is a cute game and, although some jumping is tricky, it’s only a couple of sections and it’s not hard to beat those parts.

Another Artifex Mundi game to my list, too.

I’m playing Monlight but I’m not that good with all the jumping so I distracted myself with a small game. I practice geometry frequently because of reasons, so I finished the game in a couple of sittings. The extra hours were idling for cards.

Not a bad game, I liked it but I don’t think this is for everyone.

I had already played some Doodle God in Android, so I went for the Steam version.

It was entertaining although the interface is not the best and some combinations were definitvely unexpected. But some helpful people has assembled some guides to help with those weird cases.

In the same vein as Hexcells but in a grid. 36 puzzles to keep you busy for a few hours.

Unreported previously, I had finished Quell Memento, third part of the Quell Collection. Well crafted puzzle games that you go through at your own pace and you can use hints if you need to.
