Ratings and Reviews
The game works great and doesn't kick you back too the menu if you swipe and your thumb is too far left like 15 Puzzle Challenge. The only problem is that the tiles move way to slow, this can cause problems when your trying to solve a puzzle as quick as possible but other than that it's a great 15 puzzle app.
Pros: The tiles move pretty well, and multiple tiles can be moved at a time. The colors provide a nice diversion, and the timer is excellent for those serious about speed solving like I am.
Cons: This is definitely going to be nitpicking, but every time you get a new scramble, it seems like you only get very unfavorable scenarios - many of the lower numbers start on the bottom of the board, and make it so that it forces you to have solves with higher move counts to work those lower numbers up to their positions at the top of the board. There just doesn’t seem to be enough variance in the scrambles like there would be if it was a truly randomly generated scramble, and it just feels like you aren’t getting an accurate average, if you do practice speed solving.
Overall the app is great and if you’re just looking for a 15 tile slide puzzle to solve casually, this has what you need. For more competitive solvers, it feels like the app is fixed to give you bad starting scenarios more often than not, and I wish there was more true variance in the scrambling.
Developer Response ,
Hey SoundsCrazy, thanks for the feedback!
I'm not sure how I can prove it to you, but I promise the app's scramble logic is entirely random and does not force unfavorable scenarios. If it would help, I can post the part of the code that assigns the random values on each shuffle. Just let me know :).
GREAT 15 PUZZLE
Works like the original. I have tried three other 15 apps and all would only allow you to slide one tile at a time. At last I can do one, two, or, three. Yay! Just like the original mechanical ones.
Gave the other app reviews one star and deleted them.
