Like Sudoku? Then you’re bound to enjoy wrapping your brain around A Life of Logic’s puzzles. Your goal here is to fill grids with zeros and ones—though it’s not as simple as it sounds.
You need to satisfy three rules to complete each puzzle. First, you can’t have three of the same numbers next to one another. Then, each row and column must have the same number of zeros and ones. (You’ll get a reminder of how many of each you’ve filled in at the sides of the grid.) Finally, you can’t have any identical rows or columns.
But A Life of Logic is so much more than the zeros and ones that make up its grids. Solving them reveals a series of delightful illustrations that tell a life-affirming story. Each one marks a milestone in the life of a boy who grows into a university graduate, eventually becoming a respected cosmologist. They’re also great incentive to keep going when you get stuck. Throw in real-time multiplayer matches, daily challenges, and the ability to change the look of the grid—replacing the numbers with crocodiles, chameleons, or grumpy cats—and you have a puzzler it would be illogical to miss.
