If you liked Dennis Mengelt’s Boxed In/Boxed In 2 games, you might also want to consider looking at his brother Mark Mengelt’s app Relix, another challenging logic-based puzzle game.
The object of the game is to match game tiles with their matched counterparts. You tap the tile you want to move and then slide your finger in whatever direction you want it to go in. Each level has switches, teleporters, gates, crumbling floors and other various obstacles designed to help or hinder your way through. You earn stars for each level; 1 star for completing it, 2 for completing it perfectly. The stars enable you to unlock the later levels. Though the fifty levels follow each other with increasing difficulty, I liked that you unlock levels in sets, so that if one level stumps you, you have the ability to switch to another puzzle and go back to your unsolved one later.
Relix is very well-done, the interface is simple and easy to use, the “relic” theme of the app is applied thoroughly, from the menu layout to the tile graphics to the music. Sound effects and background music is ambient and subtle, however you can listen to your own music by turning off the music in the options menu.
Relix has a Lite version for you to sample however for a limited time, Relix, as with Boxed In and Boxed In 2, are free in the AppStore as an encouragement to donate instead to Haiti at redcross.org.
Relix is quite the solid puzzle game, one that you’ll sure to spend a good amount of time trying to figure out, so if you’re one for logic puzzles, definitely check it out.
Here is a video demo of the Relix app on the iPhone
