With ample satisfying "ah hah!" moments and puzzles as artful and clever as they are challenging, Blackbox is as delightful to play as it is to look at and hold.


Frustrating, fun, and full of surprises… There’s more to Blackbox than meets the eye. Can you find all the meta challenges?

Customer Reviews


Richtig gute Ideen und schwierige Rätsel. Leider nur auf englisch.

Knobelei mit Langzeitwirkung

Wirklich gelungen und man lernt sein iPhone auch gleich nochmal sehr gut dabei kennen.


Für mich ist es eine große Kunst aus wenig viel zu machen.
Dieses Spiel macht genau das!

Warum wenig?
=> Sehr schlichtes, reduziertes Design und dennoch in sich stimmig.
Keine großes Geplänkel und Gequatschte, es geht direkt los.

Warum viel?
=> Die Rätsel sind absolut kreativ umgesetzt und nutzen die Möglichkeit vom iPhone ziemlich gut aus.
Manch Rätsel's Lösung hat man recht schnell gefunden und gelöst, bei manchen kommt man auch recht schnell auf die Lösung, man muss aber erst die entsprechenden Umstände schaffen. Genau hier liegt die Motivation und die Kreativität des Spiels.
Das Spiel im Sitzen innerhalb weniger Stunden durchzuspielen ist definitiv nicht möglich.

Tja und dann gibt es noch die Art von Leveln bei denen man einfach keinen blassen Schimmer hat was der Erschaffer sich dabei bloß gedacht hat. Und hier liegt der Zauber versteckt dass das eigene Ego es unbedingt selbst herausfinden möchte.
