Adrift

JohnBAdrift is a stylish logic puzzle game from Tack Mobile. It follows the gameplay outline of classic browser games such as Hyper Frame and 3D Logic II, eliminating the rotating cube in favor of a fixed isometric viewpoint, simple touch controls, and a sweet-as-candy visual presentation. Don't think that just because you only have three sides of a cube to worry about that things are going to be any easier to solve, however!

AdriftAdrift tasks you with one straightforward goal: connect each star-marked tile with its same-colored pair. Tap and drag from any block to start tracing a path across the cube. You can pick up and continue a line with whenever you like, but note that Adrift keeps track of how many turns you use to solve each puzzle, and if you stop drawing it counts as a turn. Don't want to ruin your awesome track record, do you?

Adrift comes with a few tutorial levels along with 45 puzzles proper, starting with simple 3x3 fields and building up to monstrous 6x6 fields with half a dozen or more colors to connect. A pack of 90 levels is available as an in-app purchase, and more are promised soon. As it stands, Adrift will provide quite a lot of challenging logic puzzles to solve, all framed within a lovely presentation that's very easy on the eyes. And if you're feeling a bit competitive, it even features online challenges so you can battle with other players to see who's the fastest puzzle solver around!

There's also a short HTML5 browser demo so you can get a feel for what the mobile version delivers.

Play Adrift (demo)

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.

I like the demo, but wish there was a way to deselect squares. Only having a reset button lets the gameplay down a little bit.

I'm liking this one a lot! A good choice for puzzle fans especially as it's (currently) free and is a small enough download that I easily installed it over 3G.

Although its gameplay is similar to Huebrix, Adrift's multi-sided design makes it feel more creative and interesting. The world in the level select is so inviting, it makes every step of the process enjoyable.

flip, you can't deselect tiles on the web demo, but the iOS game lets you doubletap an endpoint to clear all the tiles of that color

Good for how short it was, would be decent for a quick game while out and about.
