2 cool minimalist puzzle games for your phone

If you’re a regular visitor to these parts, it’ll come as no surprise that we love our puzzle games. So, after reviewing a variety of different games (adventure, simulation) over the last little while, we sought out and tried a whole bunch of puzzle games. Really, we spent the better part of an afternoon installing, playing and ultimately choosing some puzzle games to review. After that lengthy process (we had to filter out the worst games), we finally settled on the following two minimalist games to review.  Oh, but the well is far from dry since there are so many more puzzle games and games in general to try out. These two games however, were fun and really caught our eye in terms of minimalist style, quality, and ease of play. Check them out:

Orph – a Minimalist Game with Maximum Fun

Describing Orph isn’t super easy so here’s the official trailer. First off, you’ve got some balls in your possession. They are of different colours and they are in free flow. The goal: trap them in the quadrants of their respective colors. How? By sliding the borders to let the ball pass through. But of course, it just gets harder with multiple balls in play and multiple quadrants.

Much fun:

Ultraflow – Minimalism Plus Style

Stylistically, we love Ultraflow and we love playing this minimalist game even more. The goal: get the circle in the “goal” with minimal bounces, or else the ball explodes and you have to try again. Very cool and each level just gets harder and harder. Great fun, but even cooler to experience both visually and aurally. Yes, cool, electric sounds accompany the game play with excellent use of slow motion. Love the physics in this one.
