Mobile Monday

JohnBPuzzles come in a variety of forms, from straightforward "here, solve this" to more convoluted riddles in story-driven games. The puzzles in this week's titles are wrapped in different cloths, but they all provide a great challenge no matter what your preference.

brokensword.jpgBroken Sword: Director's Cut - A classic adventure makes the leap to iPhone, complete with full touch screen controls that top just about every other adventure game on the App Store. George Stobbart is an American touring Paris in the fall. While sipping coffee at a cafe, a man dressed as a clown sets off an explosion. George heads off to investigate, joined by journalist Nico Collard, and the pair travel the globe uncovering conspiracies, cults, and more. An already excellent game that has made a smooth transition to the iPhone.

cogs-iphone.jpgCogs - Like sliding puzzles? If you do, Cogs is practically the best game out there. Featuring a gorgeous steampunk-style presentation, you are tasked with solving puzzles not only on flat spaces but in 3D as well. Slide gears and pipes around the surface of each cube, the goal being to connect certain parts of the machine with other parts. You get more points for using fewer moves and working faster, which seems sort of counter-intuitive with sliding puzzles, but the game is great fun to play, nonetheless.

trainconductor.jpgTrain Conductor - Time management games where you direct the flow of traffic are a huge hit on the iTunes App Store. Flight Control and Harbor Master are two great examples of this. Train Conduct moves the action to a new location, tasking you with conducting trains traveling across set pieces of track. It's just as challenging and rewarding as Flight Control, only with a different visual flavor.

aargon.jpgAargon - The familiar laser/mirror puzzle game of reflection with a few interesting new twists. In Aargon, your goal is to shine light onto all of the coins by placing and rotating mirrors. Simply drag and drop pieces onto the grid and tap them to rotate. New items can be used later in the game, and obstacles such as TNT make your day a little more taxing than usual. The free Aargon Lite is also available.

Note that Cogs comes with only 10 (very easy) levels, and that you need to purchase further levels at .99$/10. It's a beautiful game, but very very short, and it's not good value for the money.

I was just going to point that out, jeather. I always come here to check out the apps, but it would really help if there was some more info on pricing quirks. Maybe the reviewers don't have to pay, or even visit the review boards to understand the pricing. But the issue with Cogs seems like a bit of a ripoff in App World.

I agree with the complaints about Cogs. At $0.10/puzzle it hardly seems worth it when there are so many other cheaper games to play in the app store.

I had high hopes for Cogs before it was released, before I discovered the deceptive pricing for it.
