Puzzle



Letter A


Atomino

The player is given a grid on which to place atoms, which are supplied at random into a stack. An atom needs a specific number of "bonds", from 1 to 4 which are made by placing atoms next to each other. When all connected atoms have exactly the correct number of bonds, a molecule is completed, and it is
removed from the board. Atoms can be placed on an empty space, or swapped with an existing atom, which will enter the stack. For instance, even if you place an atom needing 4 bonds on the edge, where it has only 3 neighbors, it can be overwritten with an atom needing fewer bonds. In each level, an objective is given, like "Build 2 molecules" or "Build 4 molecules with at least 9 atoms". In addition to completing the objective, the player must remove all atoms from the board before the next level starts.

Atomix

The player can choose an atom and move it in any of the four cardinal directions. A moved atom keeps sliding in one direction until it hits a wall or another atom. Solving the puzzles requires strategic planning in moving the atoms, and on later levels with little free space, even finding room for the completed molecule can be a problem. Once the molecule is assembled, the player is given a score; the faster the puzzle was completed, the higher the score. Each puzzle must be completed within
a time limit. A portion of the player's score can be spent to restart a failed puzzle. The entire game consists of 30 puzzles of increasing difficulty. In addition, after every five puzzles, there is a bonus
level where the player must move laboratory flasks filled with various amounts of liquid to arrange them from empty to full.

Boston Bomb Club

Boston Bomb Club is without a doubt one of the most unique puzzle games ever created, although not necessarily one of the most comprehensible. As one of the world's most famous scientists in the 19th century, your favorite pastime is devising bizarre mazes made up of trampolines, wheels, steam engines, etc. and roll bombs into them to hit the destination safely.

Blockout

The player's perspective is that of looking down into a three-dimensional rectangular pit. Polycube blocks of various shapes appear, one at a time and fall slowly toward the bottom of the pit. The player can use three buttons to rotate the block around any of the three coordinate axes, and can also maneuver the block horizontally and vertically with a joystick. Once any part of a block comes to rest on the floor of the pit or in contact with an already-placed cube, the entire block freezes in place and can no longer be moved.

Lemmings 3D

3D Lemmings is played by using four different, movable cameras to fly around and get an overview of the level. While some levels have fixed cameras, most of the time they can be freely moved at any time, although without the ability to tilt up or down. Another viewing option is the "virtual lemming" (VL) which allows the player to see through the eyes of a selected lemming.

Lemmings

The goal is to guide at least a certain percentage of the green-haired blue-robed lemmings from the entrance to the exit by clearing or creating a safe passage through the landscape for the lemmings to use. Unless assigned a special task, each lemming will walk in one direction ignoring any other
lemming in its way (except Blockers), falling off any edges and turning around if they hit an obstacle they cannot pass. A lemming can die in a number of ways falling from a great height, falling into water or lava disappearing off the bottom of the level map, being caught in a trap or fire, or being assigned the Bomber skill. Every level has a time limit if the clock counts down to zero, the level automatically ends.

Logical

In this fun puzzler that's simple in concept but hard to master, the goal in Logical is to arrange the order of the colored balls to match the required pattern on the left of the screen (e.g. 4 yellow in a row) by
rotating the two rails. Both puzzy savvy and reflexes are needed as the top rail quickly fills with colored balls which come faster with each new level. It's a lot of fun, and will provide many hours of intensive
brain and reflex exercise.

Mahjong

Mah-Jongg solitaire is based on an ancient Chinese game whose origins are supposed to date back some 3000 years. This version has similarities to solitaire played with cards and also with dominos since
it is played with tiles. When I first discovered the game my initial impression was that the game would quickly become dull but having played it for a while and having given it to friends we've all found that
it is quite addictive despite (or maybe because of) its apparent simplicity.

Ant, who can move certain dominoes by carrying them one at a time.

Sarakon

A simple variation of the classic game of Mahjongg (also known as Shanghai). Each of the 40 levels consist of rows and piles of tiles, patterned with symbols such as butterflies and masks. Pair them up within the time limit to move on a level. The difficulty is that a tile can only be moved if it has no tile on top of it, and a gap either to the left or right Careful planning ahead is required if all tiles are to be cleared.

the Sentinel looms.The Synthoid itself cannot move across the level instead it can look around, accumulate energy by absorbing the objects that are scattered across the landscape, create stacks of boulders, generate inert Synthoid shells and transfer its consciousness from one of these clones
to another.

Supaplex

The game comes with 111 levels though many unofficial level sets have been released that greatly increase that number. Although the levels must be played in order, the game allows up to three levels to be skipped at any given time. Also, it was very easy to skip additional levels by editing the file that contained the list of levels successfully completed.
