Bridge Constructor Portal

Many wacky elements make the game a lot of fun, taking you through 60 tests, one tougher than the other. In order to get your cars across the bridge you end up using repulsion, portals, propulsion and more, all while avoiding sentient turrets, acid pits and lasers.
Dissembler is a puzzle game that seems to be really simple, although it is not. This game combines match-three with tile-swapping and puzzles. During the level you have to flip tiles in order to match a minimum of 3 colors. When you first start playing, the game is simple but the puzzles become more and more complex.

This android game combines solitaire with puzzles. Just as the name implies, mechanics are taken from the highly popular phenomenon game 2048 but you do not slide match number blocks. You play cards on 4 discard piles. Basically, you have to be highly strategic about how you place your cards. The game is varied enough from the original 2048 and adds some extras through the card use. The only bad thing that we can say about Twenty48 Solitaire is there are so many ads. You get one when you end the game, level up, want an undo and refresh discard piles.
Price: Free – $4 optional app purchase
Two Dots is very easy to learn, hard to master and can become pretty addictive. This is what we expect from a really good puzzle game. The game is actually a sequel to a game that was really popular. However, the new one features over 900 levels, with 10 being a tutorial. The adventure is linear but after reaching level 35 you gain access to the Expedition game mode. There are no ads in the game and the visuals are really simple, clean. In-app purchases are available for some shuffles, which can be helpful during really tricky levels.

hocus. Is an indie game that is free but so interesting because of the fact that it allows you to play puzzles that are created by others, if the 100 official ones are not enough for you.
