Subway Shuffle Lite
By Aubrey's Puzzles
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is a free, "lite" version of Subway Shuffle, containing ten sample levels: the first six, and a selection of four more advanced levels.
Subway Shuffle represents a new concept in puzzling -- this is not a repackaging of puzzles you've seen elsewhere. Designed and developed by an MIT computer scientist, these puzzles pack a maximum of challenge and complexity into a deceptively simple layout.
Here's the setup: you are riding the subway, and your task is to reach your destination. The problem is, there are other subway cars in your way! Each subway car can move only on its own color line: the red cars on the Red Line, the blue cars on the Blue Line, etc. Can you shuffle the cars from station to station, eventually moving your own car to your exit station?
Each layout is a self-contained puzzle in spatial reasoning and logic. If you enjoy these puzzles, be sure to check out the full version of Subway Shuffle, which has 90 more of them. The full version also has a "Hint" button which will show you the next move if you get stuck, as well as other features such as multiple level sets.
These features are new in version 2.0:
* Level selection screen for easier navigation.
* Record of solved / unsolved levels.
* Undo / redo move.
* Improved command interface.
* Preferences for sound and appearance.

What's New in Version 2.0.7
Minor bug fixes
I like how original this Subway Shuffle game is.
I did find some of the levels in the lite version a little challenging, but managed to solve each of them in under a minute for the easy ones, and up to 5-10 minutes of distracted playing for the hard ones, while riding in the car and talking.
If you like logic puzzles, you will likely enjoy these.
I may buy the full version, if it drops to $0.99, but I've had enough for now.
WHOA! GREAT GAME
I just bought the paid version of this game after using this well-done freebie. Looks pretty easy, doesn't it? That's what I expected. I play nothing but logic games, and am pretty good. Were this game not free, I might have skipped past it. So glad I tried it; it's GREAT. Simple rules for a simple-looking game that cause people of ALL ages to think. I don't even have a suggestion for improvement. Is a WINNER GAME.
Make it 99 Cents!
Excellent puzzle app, very addictive. I would buy the full version, but I'm not willing to spend three dollars. I would definitely buy it if it was a dollar, as many other puzzle apps are. Lowering the price could lead to an explosion of sales, benefiting everyone, especially the developers.
