Choosing to round up the rating because of the last update. The latest update, which makes playing the next game easier was a big improvement. My issue is sloppy, perhaps even lazy, writing in the clues. Example 1: Mr Smith injured his leg in March, so he scheduled his vacation for the next season. The solution was summer. Unfortunately, March (in the northern hemisphere) starts in winter and ends in spring. The clue is ambiguous at best. Changing March to April makes it correct with no ambiguity. Example 2: A group of jewelers each specialize in making a type of jewelry: rings, necklaces, bracelets, etc. The clue reads that Mrs. Smith likes rings, which is supposed to mean that she makes rings. These are logic puzzles. Liking something does not mean one specializes in making it. This is sloppy and is exactly the kind of red herring other puzzles use to throw off the user. Clean up the writing.
I love logic puzzles and some of these have been a lot of fun, but I will probably delete this app for two reasons.
1) As many others have stated, the ads are ridiculous in their length and run longer than many of the puzzles themselves.
2) What really bothers me however, is the fact that you have very very inappropriate ads on your app that I just started getting tonight. Children often play games like these and I have used such problems like these in my math classroom for many years but the ad shown, with three women barely dressed in lingerie, talking about lust and one of them holding a whip is just absurd! Do you even think about the audience these games would be played by? So totally inappropriate to find ads like those on games kids may be playing. I will very likely be this app tonight as I don’t want those things popping up on my screen when I have little ones with me.
I have always loved the paper version of this so I was super excited to see an app version.
It’s great to play but it probably won’t be a keeper for 3 main reasons:
1. I’m grateful to it being free but there are just too many ads and they are way too long. I just can’t waste my life waiting for these to play over and over.
2. I don’t see any undo button when you make a mistake so it would seem the only way to correct a mistake is to start again?
3. It would be nice to have a place where you can actually see all the levels that you have played and even repeat them. Plus it would be great to have some kind of leaders boards.
Thanks for the app though and good luck.
I love logic games. This one is not the best I e ever played. The x and check feature is annoying. You’ve gotta have rally excellent aim when you tap. The squares are small and if you is, you get dinged a miss before you even realize what’s happen. Hav small hands - my ring finger is size 4.75 - and even I have trouble with the small squares. It’s a shame, too, bc the game has a lot of potential. If only they allowed the user To magnify the game board or to allow the user to click through the x and check options. I’m deleting the app. I prefer logic baron to this one without hesitation.
Another reviewer complained about the toggle button, but worse for me on a phone is the size of the boxes on higher difficulty puzzles. My fingers constantly hit the wrong box. It shouldn’t be hard to generate a setting that doesn’t automatically check whether you are right and penalize you for mis-clicks whether it be from the toggle or from fumbling fingers. I’d love to play this the way one does with a pencil where you solve the whole puzzle on your own and then check to see if you got it right when you were done. That would make it a 5 star game for me, but right now it’s unplayable.
First issue is that the tutorial isn’t skippable. I’ve been doing logic puzzles for years and it was annoying to do a lengthy tutorial on the basics.
One I finally got started, I got two clues in and accidentally touched the wrong box with my finger (the boxes are TINY on iPhone SE). Turns out that box was an answer so it autocompleted the rows. I tried to remove the mark so I could work the puzzle but it couldn’t be undone.
I started the puzzle over. Same thing happened. I uninstalled the app.
It’s clear that work went into it but it seems like it was never tested on real users.
This game is great if you’ve always wanted to improve your deductive reasoning skills. Those have never been easy for me, so this game is challenging in a good way. I will say it could use a bit more proof reading as well as maybe not using so many numbers in the puzzles, because then instead of a deductive reasoning puzzle, it becomes a working memory challenge. It would also be nice if the default selection was the checkmark instead of the X because this is pretty much the only game that does it the opposite way from normal. Otherwise, it’s a fun game with a couple problems.
The game is fun, I’ll give it that. However, any time I close the game and then open it again later it starts all over from level 1. This is extremely frustrating. I don’t want to go through the tutorials every time I come back to the game and re-play all the levels I’ve already passed.
Edit: updated so you don’t lose your progress when closing the app. I added a star as I like the game, but as many other reviews state: there are wrong clues, misspellings, and limited puzzles/levels. Hopefully they add more levels soon.
I want to start off by saying that this game is a lot of fun and I’ve enjoyed playing it. However, half the time it doesn’t let me finish a level. I’ll figure out the main clues and then go into filling in the rest of the boxes and it’ll take me straight to an add and exit the level. I usually end up with about 4-6 boxes empty. I’d really like to be able to actually complete some of these levels. The amount of ads is crazy and I feel like my levels are cut short to put in more ad time. Please let me finish the levels!!
I can join the game, but a few things need to be fixed.The toggle button is kind of annoying when you have to remember to switch back and forth between a check mark and a X, the main issue that needs to be fixed however is after I completed all of the easy levels I open the game one day and I had to start all the way over which is very annoying and irritating. The clues could also be worded better as well because sometimes it doesn’t leave any room for a logical guess so you have to use a hint
