GAME OF THE DAY
A fiendish puzzle game.
Subtle, inventive puzzles
If you like puzzles, you’ll love Dissembler, one of the most brilliantly fiendish puzzle games on the App Store.
Its premise is simple – remove all the coloured tiles from the board by sliding these connecting pieces to form runs of three or more of the same colour. In practice, however, things are rarely this simple.
With increasingly tricky layouts to conquer and moves only allowed to be made if it’s going to remove something from the board, you’ll need to plan a couple of moves ahead in order to avoid repeatedly hitting that undo button.
Yes, you’ll paint yourself into a corner time and time again—but that’s OK. It’s how you learn from these mistakes that will dictate how far you progress here.
Things start out easy enough as you learn the ropes but the challenge quickly ramps up. Soon, simply matching colours is no longer enough: you'll have to pair dots on block colours, adding a new thought-provoking layer to this fiendishly tricky title.
A game that’s great for solitary play, but one you’ll want to ask friends to look over your shoulder and help with, Dissembler will bring as many hours of entertainment as it will head-scratching confusion. Are you up to the challenge?
