The perfect puzzle game
Michael W write:
Theseus has tons of challenging levels, a great tutorial that is short but comprehensive, and a simple to learn, hard to master approach. It holds true to the online version that I got into a while ago. However, the best thing about Theseus is that the levels are challenging, but always stay logical. For example, Blocked is another great puzzle game but I sometimes find myself guessing moves until I find the right combination. Theseus requires you to think about the board logically because one wrong move=death. The only way that I can express the difficulty levels in Theseus is with an exponential curve. As the levels go up, the boards get exponentially harder and eventually seem impossible. They only seem impossible, because after thinking about them for hours, the right pattern clicks and I finish the puzzle (complete with the signature, "aha!")
This greatness about this game is that it's simple to learn but difficult to master. The entire game has a professional feel to it, from the well-thought tutorial missions to the smooth and simple graphics.
Don't pass up this app!
do your part to save the world --- by thinking
Bottom Line (but stated at top): buy and use Theseus.
Radical Idea: our world might be better if every adult spent 10 to 30 minutes each day solving puzzles with complexity similar to those in Theseus. Its progression from trivial to simple and onwards to multi-step and then to complex is very good. Rationale: problem-solving is a crucial skill which should be developed in a variety of ways. (Critical/Skeptical analysis of received info should also be encouraged in a parallel fashion --- by other tools.)
Theseus, Subway Shuffle, and SmartGo Touch present three of my favorite puzzle collections. Choose one or all to engage in some non-twitch fun (e.g., not even the brain-twitch frenzy of some BrainAge clones). Since Theseus maze developer, Robert Abbott, has a Theseus-intro Java applet on his website, logicmazes.com, there is little need for an iPod Lite version of this app. Although I have been using the Mac program (also available for LoseDoze) for a while (and am stuck midway in these puzzles), I had little hesitation in buying this iPod/iPhone version --- but I regret overlooking the link at logicmazes.com which would have increased monies paid to Robert Abbott.
I like several features of this iPod/iPhone version:
1) use of Undo (and Redo) is more "seamless" than Mac program
2) move count is shown as "current/best" (info not shown by Mac prog)
3) success at one level gives automatic progress to next level
