Blackbox - think outside the box

By Ryan McLeod

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Blackbox is one of iOS's #1 puzzle games but why take my word for it? Instead read from over 42,000 global five-star reviews! Rather read this? Fine, I get it. Here are some nice things people have said about Blackbox:

▶ “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

Explore 71 unique puzzles (MORE COMING) without touch… Tilt, shout, click, snap, wait, reflect, and hike your way to success; expand your creative thinking; ponder colorful visual clues; discover secrets along the way…



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 47 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!


What's New in Version 1.3.9

SURPRISE! I'm back just in time for Spring.
▶ Call all your friends because it's time to solve a NEW CHALLENGE.

I'm not in a rush, what else is different?
▶ I scattered some new useful hints and sardonicisms throughout the game.
▶ Fixed: People were being thanked for clothing me that actually hadn't. Huge thank you to everyone who bought a shirt!! I hope you enjoyed my little secret inside… ;)
▶ Fixed: referred friends but didn't get the hint credits? I've now fixed this little bug named Dennis. You'll be back-credited for them shortly :)
▶ Fixed: some crashes happening on iOS 8 (Future updates will require iOS 9!).
▶ Fixed a bug that made it impossible to leave the first challenge. ,:D
▶ Fixed: opening the "wormhole" to leave challenges by swiping a bit easier.

P.S. Stay in school Kevin. I don't like getting emails from teachers saying my game is a distraction. Be sneakier next time!
P.P.S. Are we instagram buddies yet? There are lots of goodies hidden there… @blackboxpuzzles

Great game but it needs more!😆

I like think this game is very fun... but... it needs some improvement. I think a fun game is a challenging game, this game IS a challenging game but you have no idea (unless you are a super smart genius or a robot or something) what to do without a clue. I would suggest adding other options to get clues. I don't think they should be free because I mean really?!? (That defeats the purpose of the game, to make money💵). Maybe for every 60 second add you watch you get a hint. Or maybe there's a bonus level you can complete to get a clue. Anything really, as long as you give people a better chance of success (what can I say, we all love success!). Also, I know it takes time to design and set up this game but you really need more free levels, I'm sorry to say this but right after I finish the free levels I'm just going to delete the game. If you aren't going to make more free levels, you should make ways to unlock the bonus levels that you have to pay for. Not everyone has money to spend for a few extra levels. I hope you consider my suggestions!👍🏻😁
This game has great potential!

Thinking Outside The ◼️

This game is OUTSTANDING I've never seen an app quite like this. I have been entertained for hours trying to figure out problems and running around asking people to download the game so I can get hints. It's been a very fun experience but there's one thing I can recommend. The only space for improvement could be new ideas and the first I would recommend is obviously more levels. I was occupied for about a week or two playing this game and I've just about finished it. I want more levels I need more levels but I'm not willing to spend a pretty penny on it. More free levels or maybe completing levels awards you points the more difficult the more points then you can spend those points on buying level packs. You could still have paid packs like you do now but this would offer free to play players a way to continue enjoying your app But you can still make money off people buying the other packs. I hope you read my respond, Best regards.


Amazing game you have here! (And I don't say that about any game) Honestly, this is the only game I have played for this long. Usually I'll download something, play it for a week or so, and delete it when I get bored with it. Also, I will delete apps to get picture room, (you know the struggle) and absolutely cannot bring myself to delete this! (Especially after all the hard work I've put into it;) I love that there are no ads, and I also love the humorous encouragement that is made when I figure something out. Burritos and coffee? Right on! (Honestly though, I seriously love burritos) I enjoy this game thoroughly, also because it makes me feel smart.(noticed how much I like parentheses yet?) The meta challenges rock!! (Though I still can't figure out how to unlock one..🔒🔓) (if you hadn't noticed, how about now??) (I'm not gonna stop until I think everyone's had enough...) Thank you for making me feel a little smarter, and making my life just a bit more frustrating. (☺️)
