Chilled out, smart, and difficult without being frustrating, TacTicTos Studios' Quebrix is everything a puzzle game should be. The game offers you thirty levels of picture sliding puzzles set to a smooth jazz soundtrack that could play in only the classiest of elevators. Simply slide each segment of the picture to try and assemble a recognizable image. Take your time. There are more points for fewer tries, and you get rewarded with a deep inspirational quote from one of history's great thinkers when you succeed. It's like an interactive motivational poster, perfect for any mid-workday break. Also, the hint system won't solve the puzzle for you. You have a limited number of hints you can play that only move the puzzle one move towards completion, so if you run out and remain stuck, you're stuck for good until you earn more by solving puzzles with the minimum moves.
Quebrix has a lot in common with "chill" puzzle games like Shurizzle: no time limits, no real penalties beyond a lowered score at the end. You solve each puzzle at your own pace. It must be said, there are more than a few levels that can be beaten with random swiping, so unless you're a stickler for good grades the game might feel a bit unmotivated. But challenge never killed a good puzzle game and the addition of more complex images and immovable quadrants on the pictures keeps things fresh as you surge into the higher levels. It's just a slow, relaxing piece of game design. In a world of gore-splattered zombie games and military shooters, sometimes it's nice to sit back and crack open a game like Quebrix. Check it out, and let the puzzles massage your brain.
