Description

So you think you understand this thing you’re holding? Think again. Stop tapping. Stop swiping. In fact, stop touching the screen at all. To crack Blackbox’s puzzles you’ll need to find solitude and stillness, climb mountains, call on friends, get in tune with the cosmos, and think outside the box.

Minimalistic visual clues make for incredibly satisfying “Aha!” moments, while sonic interfaces provide an extra level of guidance and nuance that makes Blackbox accessible with or without vision. Thoughtful haptic feedback, Easter eggs on Easter eggs, and solutions that can’t be found beneath the glass of your screen redefine what a puzzle can be. You’ll never see your device the same way again.

Think you’re clever? Prove it.

(Blackbox is a living game under active development by Ryan McLeod. When not eating burritos or drinking coffee, he’s busy designing and developing new Blackbox challenges.)

Editors' Notes

The most ingenious thing about Blackbox’s puzzles isn’t that you solve them without tapping or swiping. It’s that you’ll happily spend hours figuring out the game’s subtle clues. Do you need to tilt your iPhone, shout into the speaker or do something a lot trickier? Thinking creatively and finding the answer feels deeply rewarding, even profound—earning Blackbox an Apple Design Award.

:::::my favourite game::::: ,

You need to play this game.

This game is one of the best iOS games out there. The puzzles are challenging, constantly have you thinking ‘wait, he can do that?’, and lighting up a box never fails to bring a smile to the player’s face. An awesome game, you’ll be constantly wishing there were more puzzles, even after purchasing the two expansion packs that are even more amazingly difficult than the base game (not to mention the mostly hidden meta based puzzles that are just so satisfying to uncover and solve).

A challenging and self-aware puzzle game with capabilities we weren’t aware were even possible when it came to iOS app development as well as a modern, sleek, and very thoughtful design from a witty developer come together to create Blackbox. You must play it.

This app has me locked in to find every little hidden secret that could or couldn’t be in any nook n cranny within the game. I feel as if there are many more challenges hidden that are seen normally, and I won’t spoil the ones that are...

Even with one last square to light up, the creators get you to use your phone in a way where you may have never even thought possible, to solve the simplest puzzle/riddle, and always got me questioning how or if they could actually do that.

Either way, a must have app, and I highly recommend if you want to be stuck playing it!
