What's New in Version 1.4.0
• 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)
Love this game! Challenging puzzles and a great community
So after finally buying the extra levels (which is worth it) I'm hooked on this game. The puzzles keep you intrigued and challenged. Makes you really use your mind and phone 👍🏼 ⬛️🌯, never found a puzzle game this enjoyable. Really makes you think "Outside of the Box". This beats other puzzle games out of the water! Just can't get enough! Completed 70 lights so far after a little hiccup with a backup, the creator of this game is really doing an amazing job with the puzzles! Ryan my good sir, we need more people to buy you burritos! Keep up the good work!
I am a big fan of puzzles. Most games I play involve puzzle solving, and while I find most of them quite fun and distinct from each other, Blackbox is *completely unlike* anything I've ever played. In almost every other game, each puzzle is a new permutation of previously established mechanics. In Blackbox, every puzzle is utterly distinct. They really range in difficulty from the immediately apparent to the head-bashingly impossible, but every solution is simple, you just need to figure out how to get there. Ryan McLeod really knows what he's doing and I can't recommend this enough.
Challenging but fun as hell puzzle experience
I love this game, it seems simple up front, solve puzzles, open boxes, but instead of being a simple puzzle game where it will take 5 minutes at most to complete one, this game is tough, utilizing all features of your phone, from volume to mapping, just to name a few. Another thing is that's is its hints. Instead of hints being dispensable, being able to be gotten from a video, this game is very tight fisted with them, requiring you to really think it through. It's challenging and whatever you do: DO NOT GOOGLE THE ANSWERS
