puzzlement by $.99

 puzzlement comes from gamebra.  As soon as I saw the author, I didn't even bother looking at the description - I knew this would be wonderful.  I was right.
 The object is to get Your Man/Men, the big red square/s to scoop up the little red squares.  Not shown in these images is that Your Man has little feet.  He can travel to his right or left.
 Your Man must be re-oriented in order to be able to get to everything. Oh yes, he can always jump up 1 square.  When he comes upon a blue square, he's flipped upside down and shot to the ceiling.
 The real beauty of this game is traveling across/along the other faces of the cubes.
One little problem is when Your Man needs to do a double jump by tapping to the right at the same time as jumping. Often, it didn't quite work and I was forced to restart.  Also, it's a bit illogical that Your Man can do a double jump to the left/right, but can only jump straight up 1 square.

Minor complaints.  puzzlement is an absolute gem.  50 levels. I did them in about 3-5 hours.

Unpuzzle by Pavlo Sich FREE

Unpuzzle comes from Pavlo Sich.  The object is to remove dismantle everything piece by piece. Look at the first image.  The top right slides up & out. Then the piece to its left would slide to the right. And the piece to its left would then slide up.
In the second image, blue arrowed pieces can only travel in 1 direction.  The red pieces will turn completely white after a certain # of prior moves have been made.
The green hooks add another element of restrictions.
The squares with a red outline can rotate.
The blue dots travel together.
The yellow triangles - any piece that crashes into them disintegrates, which is good.

There are 150 levels and I've done about 40 of them.  Unpuzzle is not very hard but it's very relaxing.
The graphics perfect.

It's a Trap! by ayush singla FREE

 It's a Trap comes from Ayush Singla. It's a point scoring puzzle app game.  The green square is Your Man. Your Man must score points by attacking the other pieces before they surround you or poke you.
The graphics and instructions could be better.  Essentially:
The yellow squares never travel.
The red squares rotate and travel.
The blue squares can push you to the next square. Unless there's already another square there, and then you're poked dead.
The black squares appear if you have poked 5 other squares on that spot.  Black squares can never block everything and will end your game.

I really did not want to like this game.  But I do! Somebody on the Leaderboard has a fantastic score, which means I have not perfected my strategy.

Levity by Neon Play FREE

Levity comes from Neon Play.  It is quite unusual.  The object is to rotate your perspective on the fragmented lines & curves and somehow align them into a single shape to match something else.

This is done be rotating the whole view and zooming in/out.  This is definitely a very cool concept.

I've only solved 3 levels.  This is very hard.

1SlimePlz by Saran Siripuekpong

 1SlimePlz  comes from Saran Siripuekpong.  The object is to tap on an empty square which is adjacent to 2 or more slime objects and watch them merge.
Ideally, you'll want to end up with just 1 slime pile and hopefully it will land on the star.

40 levels - they go fast.

Dissembler by Ian MacLarty $2.99

 Dissembler comes from Ian MacLarty.  It's a match 3 game. The objective is to eliminate all the squares. Each move is a vertical or horizontal swap of 2 pieces. As long as there is a 3 color combo anywhere on the board, the move is legal.
Some squares have multiple colors. In those, the outer color must be matched first. There are approximately 125 puzzles. I've done about 100.

There is a point scoring version too.  In that version, all squares have 3 colors. So there's a lot of strategic planning to stay alive as long as possible. My only qualm with this part of the game is that the playing field is too small and could be increased probably by 50%.

The graphics are great. The puzzles go pretty fast, but I have stumbled.  These are well crafted.

Dissembler is a little gem. Great job Ian!
