iPhone Screenshots

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.)

What’s New

Version 1.7.0

Brand New Store
■ Buy hint credits, burritos, and merch in hyper-ellipsoid style!
■ Check out your gleaming hint credits with a snazzy transition
■ Scroll till you drop with deliciously gooey scrolling
■ Easily join my communities on all the socials you could ask for (including some that you didn’t)

New Sharing
■ See exactly how many hint credits you’ll earn the next time you ruin someone life with your Blackbox referral link!
■ Take a screenshot of your grid to get options for sharing a full-sized capture
■ Improved Instagram Stories sharing

Smaller App
■ Blackbox’s binary is now up to 75% smaller! A certain purple challenge now requires a new permission and an internet connection if you’re running iOS 10, 11, or 12 but you should be able to store at least 10 more Slofies on your phone now.

Accessibility
■ Blackbox supports iOS 13’s brand new VoiceControl! Navigate Blackbox with ease with commands like “go back”, “open store”, and “solve puzzle” (just kidding on that last one).
■ Fixed a few mismatched VoiceOver strings

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.

Brain yoga by Ryan

What did you do Ryan? My brain refuse to sleep!
The game has certainly trained my brain into thinking out of the box. It certainly does help if you are familiar with Apple IPhone’s features and short cuts. Perhaps It could be Apple iPhone wizard app too! Well, it is certainly more than that. :)
Also Ryan, I know what you are doing there... just tricked me into shifting Blackbox to the first slot of my App task bar. Sneaky fella.😏😏

Developer Response ,

Amazing

It’s amazing to see how an app could possibly use almost every function an iPhone has. The developer is very responsive on Twitter and Reddit, making my purchases even more well spent!
