So you think you understand this thing you’re holding? Think again. Stop tapping. Stop swiping. In fact, stop touching the screen at all. To crack Blackbox’s puzzles you’ll need to find solitude and stillness, climb mountains, call on friends, get in tune with the cosmos, and think outside the box.
Minimalistic visual clues make for incredibly satisfying “Aha!” moments, while sonic interfaces provide an extra level of guidance and nuance that makes Blackbox accessible with or without vision. Thoughtful haptic feedback, Easter eggs on Easter eggs, and solutions that can’t be found beneath the glass of your screen redefine what a puzzle can be. You’ll never see your device the same way again.
Think you’re clever? Prove it.

This is the last version of Blackbox to support iOS 9 …the very same OS upon which Blackbox grew up and learned to walk. iOS 9 you will not be forgotten …at least not with a crash on launch bug.
■ Fixes a crash on launch affecting devices running iOS 9
■ Fixes some missing text
■ Fixes a small memory leak
Ratings and Reviews
The most ingenious thing about Blackbox's puzzles isn’t that you solve them without tapping or swiping. It’s that you’ll happily spend hours figuring out the game's subtle clues. Do you need to tilt your iPhone, shout into the speaker, or something a lot trickier? Thinking creatively and finding the answer feels deeply rewarding, even profound—earning Blackbox an Apple Design Award.
A really really good puzzle game which makes me think in a new way, it requires out of the box thinking, is is just fun and(to my knowledge) not something that has need really done before
This is definitely the most unique game that I've seen on the App Store. It utilizes all the different parts of your phone except the screen which is so cool! It genuinely is a very fun game because it really feels like a physical puzzle but without the actual mechanisms.
