What's New in Version 1.4.1
• Bug fix for crash affecting 32-bit devices (iPhone 5, 5c, etc)
• visual fix for a certain two-light challenge on iOS 10
• New custom accessibility rotors for faster home grid navigation
• Typo fix (triply checked this time)
• New Challenge
It's beautiful, it's mysterious, it's ready to solve
(A secret feature that will unlock when the new challenge is completed…)
• New Hint System
You've asked and it's finally here. Not only are hints cheaper they now come in varieties ranging from "less helpful" hints to "more helpful" ones for when you just need a vague nudge or are truly stumped. Can't wait to hear what you think.
• Dynamic Type (iOS 11)
Blackbox now supports the smallest to the very largest accessibility text sizes with grace and in real time.
• Smart Invert Colors (iOS 11)
Blackbox (already being very dark) now intelligently inverts its colors only where need be.
The Fine Print Stuff
(for all you release note aficionados and lovers)
○ Kiss your rounded rectangles goodbye, Blackbox contains even more hyper-ellipses (also know as "squircles" or "squagels")
○ An existing, very vexing challenge has a new visual and mechanic
○ Native rating prompt
○ New social media following options
○ Several new UI sound effects (can you hear them all?)
○ Fixed some anti-aliased edges
○ Improved VoiceOver clues for two challenges
○ Plugged some atomically small memory leaks
○ 3D Touch sharing option now uses your referral link (accrue that hint coin skrilla)
○ Fixed a potential audio related crash
○ Fixed a potential crash when restoring from iCloud (REINSTALLING THE GAME IS NOT A PUZZLE …smh)
You came and you gave without taking 🎶
You've taken me through every emotion from pure rage to sheer and utter joy. 🎭 You've raised not only the bar, but my standards for what an amazing gaming experience can be. 🎮🏆👏🏼 Every time I think I'm done with you, you bring me back in. I find myself spending hours trying to figure you out. ⏰ and who doesn't love an honest, burrito and coffee loving man? ☕️🌯
I think we need to stop wasting time and get real. I told my boyfriend there was someone else... I told him it was you. 💕 he is also an avid blackbox fan and completely understands. Ryan, my undying love for you will just continue to grow! 🌱hopefully about a football field straight up, or even beyond that. 🏈 Maybe even up, up, and away. 😉
I know you may not be ready to commit to this, so for now I'll just keep waiting on the edge of my seat for every new puzzle. But when you are ready.... 💍👰🏼❤️
Keeps crashing after display timeout
Just downloaded this yesterday but still have yet to get past the very first intro challenge. Whenever my display shuts off because I haven’t touched the screen in 30 seconds or so, I turn my screen back on & the app has frozen, & then it crashes. I’ve tried to remember to keep tapping my screen every few seconds to avoid it from shutting off, but I end up forgetting & there it goes. Then I have to restart the app from the welcome screen all over again & I've repeated this like 5 times now... Please correct this ASAP. It looks like a beautifully intriguing puzzle app otherwise, so I very much look forward to this being fixed.
Fun for even a 3 year old
I picked this game up on a whim, and ended up really enjoying it. My 3 year old saw me playing and was instantly drawn to it. Now he constantly asks me to play the “block game” with me. Believe it or not he’s actually been able to figure out some of these on his own. That’s astounding to me, and I’m happy to keep buying upgrade packs when they arrive as long as he wants to keep playing. We’ve already finished all we can at this point, and are just eating for the new arrivals!
