Puzzles Apps

Cut the Rope – Zepto Lab

The aim of this game is to deliver the candy to the frog by negotiating the obstacles. It’s one of those lovely puzzle games that is both fun to play and a great way to work that brain.

Unblock Me

Get the red block to the exit by moving the other blocks out of the way.

Same theme – get the liquid to the target and navigate a bunch of obstacles along the way.

Halos Fun

Sort of like Angry Birds where you fling orange balls from a sling shot, but the aim of this game is to knock all the halos. You get an unlimited number of balls but if you want three stars, you need to limit the number you use.
