By Ryan McLeod

○ "A game so intelligent, I might call it sexy" — HoldingOut4Updates

○ “Unlike anything you’ve ever played before” —App Advice

○ "Constant how-did-they-do-that moments" —Skottk

○ "Utterly diabolical and utterly brilliant" —CNET

○ “Undeniably unique” —Todays iPhone

○ “Devilishly clever” —Six Colors



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?


Every challenge has been tuned to be on the cusp of maddening but always solvable. Some challenges take time, perseverance, and perspective to understand, but if you’re really stumped rest assured there are hints. To enjoy the game to it’s fullest, only use them as a last resort!


Blackbox is jam-packed with 46 free challenges. Get far enough and you'll get the option to pay to unlock more advanced challenges and support the game's future development (and keep it ad free)!

Good luck,


More challenges are in the works!

Amazing game!

I love it!its so unique, I give it a 10 out of 10


Love this game!

I don't write reviews often, but when I do...

It's because I am impressed. Appreciating this developer's cleverness and wit makes the time spent in this app worthwhile... well, that and the endorphins released when you solve a puzzle.

This is very enjoyable for people like me. I love troubleshooting and don't mind sitting and waiting for a solution to come to the surface. There's a lot of joy when the answer just hits you out of nowhere.

If you, on the other hand, have OCD tendencies AND lack patience, you might get frustrated, but that's why the hints are there. No shame there. Be yourself and use them.

I'm especially trying to not use the hints, (which is why I stopped reading other reviews - they contain hints). This makes it fun for me, and I'm saving money, but sooner or later, Ryan, I owe you a coffee or burrito.

Well done, sir.
