Esquire's The Hardest Puzzle Ever

By Hearst Communications, Inc.

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Yeah, we said hardest EVER. An amazing game unlike any you’ve ever played, brought to you by the editors of Esquire and the sadistic minds at Puzzability. It will test your spatial skills, your brains, your wit, and your knowledge of literature and history and bad TV. If you’re smart enough to beat the first, free level, you can then purchase the next four, increasingly difficult, levels for one low price. Are you up to it?

* Visually stunning
* Impossibly arcane challenges
* Test your knowledge of books, music, politics, women, war
* Embedded video and audio and actual humor throughout
* Collect real origami trophies!
* Win more awards and compete with friends via Apple Game Center
* But mostly, you will test yourself, son—the greatest award of all

Five impossible levels, leaderboards, Facebook, Twitter, email integration

Are you smart enough for it? Download the first level for FREE

My house could have been on fire and I wouldn't have been able to tear myself away from this game! I LOVED it, but have no intention of buying the additional games because, if I were to do that, I would accomplish nothing else until all of them were solved.

Pretty expensive for the promise of 5 levels and being broken

$4.99 for levels 2-5? If I'm bored enough with all of my free and $0.99 games, maybe I'll give it a go, but I'm nervous when the "Answer" button doesn't work once I've hit the "Answer Later" option one time.

Really fun but have to pay for extra puzzles

I was very surprised at how much fun i had with this game. Very cool puzzles. The problem is that beyond the initial batch of puzzles you have to pay $5 for more puzzles. Great game but the price is too steep.
