Brilliance: Catch the light is indie developer Sprightly Wolf's new light-themed puzzle, out now on iOS

Posted by 148Apps Staff on July 7th, 2022
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Sprightly Wolf (Lajos Farkas) has announced the official launch of Brilliance: Catch the light for iOS users across the globe. The logic puzzle game challengers players to use their wits by manipulating lightbeams and reflecting light across multiple levels to solve various problems.

Brilliance: Catch the light features more than one way to solve problems on each level, as you try to figure out the right reflections from surfaces and prisms that will help you hit a target cage. The handy hint system can help you out in a pinch, but taking a quick break when you're stuck might just lead to the solution presenting itself later on.

The 5 Best Mobile Puzzle RPGs

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 24th, 2022

RPGs with puzzle mechanics feel like the perfect fit for mobile. There’s something about a game that moves at a gentile pace while having a somewhat predictable-yet-challenging set of mechanics that can morph as you progress through some kind of grand adventure that feels right at home in your pocket.

With the recent release of Hero Emblems II, I thought it’d be good to revisit some of the absolute best puzzle RPGs that iOS has to offer, just in case you missed out on some of these incredible titles.

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: MORE OLD HAT
The follow up to Hero Emblems adds some wrinkles to its solid puzzle combat but mostly just feels like more Hero Emblems.

This puzzle game imagines an art gallery where you manipulate paintings to move between works, a neat idea that doesn’t end up quite as fun as it sounds.

Wordle is seemingly taking the internet by storm as of late. The little daily “guess the word” game has been popping up all across social media timelines in the last couple of weeks, and for good reason. It’s a fun little exercise that is satisfying to complete, easy to make a daily ritual, and easy to share online to compare results.

Now, Wordle is easy enough to play on your phone as it is, but just in case you’re looking for some more games that can satisfy in a similar way between daily resets, here are some incredible mobile games that can do just that.

Evan's Remains review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 14th, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: MECHANICS OF MEANING
Evan’s Remains is a surprising puzzle platformer in the sense that its puzzles and platforming are intentionally arbitrary.

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: CLEVER CUBE
