Lori.hEilo Landa has brought us some great logic games, like Sum Tracks and Finite Moves, and their newest simple twist is Wise Turn holding all the great puzzle logic we love, but without the math some of those other games require. Wise Turn is all about knobs and turning them in the right direction... that direction being "up". You'll know you got it right when the little arrow is glowing all warm and fuzzy like. Set up on a grid system, the puzzle part comes in when turning one will turn the whole row or column. Red turns clockwise, blue turns counter-clockwise, and some will take more than one click to move. You'll need to think a few steps ahead or end up turning in circles. With its invigorating soft music, relaxed feel, and all levels open to play so you're free to skip around, Wise Turn is the casual gameplay great to have to unwind from a long day.

Just click on the row or column you want to turn. It can be a bit tricky to select the row from the column you want to adjust, but if you keep your mouse off to the side instead of on the individual tiles it's much easier to pick the one you wanted, though it's easy to tell which you have elected since it highlights everything that moves. But even if you make an incorrect click there is a great undo button. There are, in fact, two undo buttons, one to go back a move and one that resets the board for you. For the first group of levels or so you probably won't need to use either one very much. It's surprisingly one of those puzzle games that looks more complicated than it really is, and some rounds can be solved by just tinkering around. However, later in the game the difficulty takes a sharp upward curve, which can be a delight to some and a wall to others. But with the levels unlocked you are always free to jump over a level and try for another one. There aren't any scores or timers or even something that counts your moves, and it's nice to have no in-game pressures. Wise Turn is really more about enjoying the play instead of stressing over how to find the perfect solution. This is clearly a puzzle game there to let you challenge yourself at your own pace and is welcoming enough to let anyone have a go.

Play Wise Turn
