Ice Cube Bear
Aside from the litany of misfortunes befalling polar bears in recent times, a new woe has reared its crystalline head: polar bears encased in ice cubes, solely at the mercy of the elements, a tight physics engine, and your puzzle-honed intellect. This is Ice Cube Bear, a frosty physics puzzle from the folks at Heroik.
Your quest is to send each frozen polar bear into the drink at the bottom of the screen, which will melt their icy prison and set them free once more. How might one accomplish this, you might ask? Clicking on cracked chunks of ice will vaporize them, as is characteristic of the members of the tumbledrop family tree. Sometimes there will be more than one polar bear, other times there'll be all manner of sliding platforms, hovering elevators, and other contraptions to make your endeavor simpler or more difficult.
The twinkling music never grates on you, and the visuals (the ice notwithstanding) are cuddly enough to be right out of a Saturday morning cartoon (of the nonviolent variety). While the front-end of the game delivers, other, more battle-hardened physics puzzlers might find this game to be a bit slow for their liking, or the bulk of the early puzzles might feel a bit too easy. Regardless of pacing or difficulty, though, it's an enjoyable game that can sate your "phuzzle" thirst quite handily. And somebody's got to save those polar bears.
