Oh …. This is a dangerous thing for me to explore. I have such a hard time staying away from those addictive little time-wasters. I have Temple Run in various forms on all of my devices (I like it best on my Kindle Fire – the size of the screen to swipe and control of the tilt seems the easiest on that device). I tried to find DrawQuest, but that company appears to have gone out of business.
So, I’m going to do another post about some of the favorite apps that I already use in this category …
· Solitaire Victory (free) – I know, solitaire has become something of a joke about being how a newbie learns to use the mouse on their first computer. This app has more than just the best known solitaire game though – there are currently 87 different types one or two deck solitaire games included. My current favorite is Lady Jane – quite challenging.
·A good teaching tool about vectors and other physics. You need to get a minimum score to advance to the next puzzle.
Luxor ($0.99) – The addictive Egyptian themed marble shooter game that I had to conquer all of the levels on before I could make myself put it down.
· 100 Floors / 100 Exits (both free) – These two games are manipulation puzzles – try to figure out what will open the door so you can get to the next level. Some solutions seem obvious and others take a long time to figure out. I’m at about level 70 in “Floors” and stuck at about 25 in “Exits”. Great for to exercise your brain with a little sideways thinking.
