The 2-D puzzle games in Enigmo have been fan favorites since Pangea Software presented them in 2003. The original title launched a sequel in 2009 that feature not just 3-D graphics, but the puzzles themselves are 3-D.
Pangea handed off the series to another game company, Team Chaos, who recently launched the third title in the series on iOS in the form of Enigmo: Explore…
Like the title sounds, this game features a physics-based puzzle system that is customized to fit your design. Instead of adhering to one specific chain of events, use the items in your toolbox to make the solution as complex as you want.
Similar to the first two titles, Enigmo: Explore’s basic goal is to get the dripping liquid into the container. Players have a toolkit that includes bouncing platforms, liquid-shooting cannons, and more. It is up to you whether you want to use one or more tool and what order and placement you want to put them in. You are only limited by what you have in your toolkit.
Levels start with a contraption that features one or more pipe that is dripping liquid. Players must redistribute water into color-coordinated canisters by deflecting the drops off of the tools they use, as well as surrounding objects. Drag items from the toolbox at the bottom of the screen to place them on the contraption. If you don’t like the results of a placement, tap the tool to put it back into the toolbox.
You can rotate tools to change the direction that the drips flow. This can help fill the container or deflect the water in a different angle so that it will find its way to the tank.
This game is timed. Players must fill the containers within a certain time frame in order to progress. The quicker you get the tanks filled, the more stars you will earn.
The graphics are 3-D in this new game, but the puzzles are 2-D. Players can zoom in on the action to determine what they want to do. The backgrounds can be changed to a variety of different locations to help maintain the illusion of Zen-like peace.
Enigmo: Explore is available on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch for $0.99. Download it in the App Store today.
