Vizati (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)
Vizati is a bit of a weird puzzle game, combining story with a puzzle element in which you need to manipulate a 2D square that has smaller, colored squares within it. Tilting, flipping and shoving the puzzle can make the colored squares fall together, and when they touch each other, they’re eliminated. Getting rid of the colored squares solves the puzzle, advancing the story forward.
There are 100 puzzle levels to play through in Vizati, and it includes two different arcade game modes. It also has leaderboards that achievements care of Game Center and a rich graphical and musical style.
Puzzle Pond (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)
There’s a pond full of animals, and you need to make them kiss. That’s the premise at work in Puzzle Pond, in which you’ll swipe different animals to move them around the pond in order to make matches. Pairing animals of different types eliminates them from the pond, but you can only move certain animals so far. If you’ve spent any time with Bejeweled, you’ll recognize the match-three mechanics at work here.
Puzzle Pond packs two different game modes: a speed mode in which you’ll make as many different matches as you can as quickly as you can, and a puzzle mode in which you’ll need to determine the order to make matches in order to make sure you can complete the puzzle. The game also includes Game Center support for achievements and leaderboards.
