Blackbox: Puzzles for the Mind
These mind-warping mysteries will stretch the limits of your imagination.
Award-winning IQ mind puzzles
The inventive puzzle game Blackbox tests more than your wits. It pushes the boundaries of what puzzle games can be—and how you play them.
There’s little to tap or swipe here, no characters to maneuver. Instead, you’ll tinker with your iPhone itself: rotating it, laying it flat, shouting into its speaker, adjusting the brightness of the display.
The game’s cryptic clues will help you figure out some solutions easily. Other solutions you’ll stumble upon through experimentation (like figuring out you need to open the app once an hour), which makes those “Aha” moments all the more thrilling.
As confounding as it may be, Blackbox’s smart design prevents roadblocks. You can tackle puzzles in any order, so if you get stuck on one, just move to another. A tiered system unspools hints as you need them—each bearing the game’s trademark subtle humor.
Blackbox fully supports the VoiceOver accessibility feature in iOS. Turn it on to get verbal and auditory clues rather than visual ones—a fun and engaging experience in its own right. However you tackle this one-of-a-kind game, the journey is bound to be mind-bending.
