Challenging!

Updated updated review:
Found that if you sit in a quiet room with no distractions, the puzzles are easier to solve. These definitely are challenging puzzles, but helps to keep our brains actively thinking!

Updated review:
Great customer support. Like that this version doesn’t “time shame” you. Glad to be reminded of where check your answer icon is. Like the note section. It’s the way I would work solutions when solving the magazine versions. Would like a variety of challenges available in purchased puzzle packs (4x4, 4x5, etc.) or know what is being purchased. Sometimes the wording is not always clear whether the statement is true or should be eliminated. That is brain frustrating and my only real complaint now that developer has responded.

Previous review:
Hard to follow. Not easy to check whether answers are right or wrong and erase wrong answers because no buttons to check that as with previous version. Not as much fun. Guess I will stick with my Quick Logic version and erase & replay and/or work daily puzzles. 👎

Hi there, thanks for the review. The “lightbulb” 💡button at the bottom right will check for errors and optionally erase errors. So, I think everything you loved about the old version is still there! 🎉

If you have more questions or comments, you can reach us anytime via email at support@eggheadgames.com, or Facebook.

Strange Puzzles (both a good and a bad thing)

I've enjoyed some of these logic puzzles from the free version quite a bit. The types of hints are a bit unusual and most of them seem to rely more on weird wording to trip you up rather than genuine logic puzzling. Some of them I like quite a bit though! One thing I will note that was the main reason why I took off two stars: Some of the puzzles' hints contain SO MUCH information that you don't need. One of the puzzles ("Free Parking") talks about the position of different people's parked cars using blocks (e.g. 'Joe's car is 3 blocks west of Jane's car). None of the puzzle has to do with the position of the cars in relation to each other. In addition, one of the hints is literally useless because it tells the user that 'the last person to arrive was wearing an ascot'. None of the puzzle has to do with when everyone arrived at the event. So there's no point of the hint being there at all. Some of the puzzles are decent and have really good hints that really make you think. But some of the puzzles' hints are just annoying to deal with. TBH this app is the logic game equivalent of horror movies which rely on using cheap jump scares 99 percent of the time rather than prolonged and suspensful horror.

One of the joys (struggles!) of the Free Parking puzzle is that it requires the use of information that doesn't even appear in the answer. I need pen, sorry I mean pencil, and paper for solving this puzzle. It turns out that (without giving too much away) grouping people into "parked a block away" vs other locations is indeed a key part of solving the puzzle. I don't know of any other way to solve it. So, rather than those hints being "literally useless", they're absolutely necessary. I'm happy to be proved wrong on this, but this puzzle has proven so challenging that we prepared a PDF, with drawings, that step through the solution. Feel free to email support@eggheadgames.com if you'd like a copy - or, please, provide some way to solve this puzzle without using the blocks information and, of course, without guessing! I think you'll find another 2 stars are well deserved :)
Cheers, Michael @ Egghead Games

Poorly written clues, hints are even worse

Downloaded this from its sister app, which I loved and eased through all of their puzzles. When that app concluded, it suggested this app as a harder version or to purchase their own harder puzzles. Of course this app is “extreme” - these clues are terrible and you’re left guessing! Sometimes it names three different “people” in a clue but the “not” clue only refers to one of those people, not all of those people. Similar to: “Barry wasn't late on Thursday, which wasn’t the train”… so you’re left wondering if Barry isn’t the train as well. The wording could be slightly better to make things more clear. When you get stuck (which is often), the “hints” just tell you to mark a box as true or false without any explanation, and it’s clear that they don’t go in order - it just picks a random cell to mark as false, but it’s evident there are zero hints that would even logically lead you to that conclusion. It just told me to mark a cell as false when both the person and the day weren’t mentioned in any of the clues, and there is no supporting evidence to suggest that there any true match ups that would make another pairing false… the hints are horrible. Will not be buying additional puzzles - I’ll go back to my other logic puzzle app and will give them my money.

Thanks for the detailed and thoughtful review. Yes, these puzzles are provided by a different publisher (Penny Dell) than our other app (Puzzle Baron). They have a much greater variety of topics and clues, but even the way the clues are presented are different. Ironically, in my inbox this morning was your review, and another (on Android) saying, essentially, the opposite. I.e. that the other puzzles are anodyne and these are the "real" puzzles. In short, it's great to have choices! Thanks for trying them both.On the topic of hints, yes, this app does not have the Smart Hints of the other app - in large part because the puzzles are so variable and thus it is hard to generate good hints. However, in case you missed it (and I think we need to improve the app here), it does have an "Answer" section below the clues. This can be as cryptic as the clues themselves, but those who love these puzzles tend to enjoy them.Happy puzzling! Cheers, Michael @ Egghead Games
