    January 10, 2010 by David

    You know those maddening puzzles where the puzzle is made up of tiles the same size but there is one missing so you can rearrange the tiles in order to put everything back the right way? Well, what if the answer to the puzzle wasn’t obvious since it didn’t show a picture when it was finished but you had to figure out how to power certain items by attaching cogs in a certain order?

    That’s the game Cogs by Lazy 8 Studios in a nutshell. Download the demo for PC and give it a try wait a little bit for it on the iPhone. From the site:

  2. Have fun with Scribblenauts

    January 6, 2010 by David


    Scribblenauts is a puzzle game similar to many others where your character must collect an item, in this case a star, to complete the level and move on to the next. Where Scribblenauts gets interesting is that you can use just about anything you can think of to help you get that star. Just write in a word with the stylus, the game has a vocabulary of over 20,000, and that item will come to life.

    Need to get a star down from a tree? Why not use a wood chipper, or a wood chuck, or an axe, or … well, you get the picture. Solving puzzles was never this fun until you could use 22,802 possible items in a game.
