Blackbox – brain puzzles

Grow Pixel
So you think you understand this thing you’re holding? Think again. Stop tapping. Stop swiping. In fact, stop touching the screen at all. To crack Blackbox’s puzzles you’ll need to find solitude and stillness, climb mountains, call on friends, get in tune with the cosmos, and think outside the box.

Minimalistic visual clues make for incredibly satisfying “Aha!” moments, while sonic interfaces provide an extra level of guidance and nuance that makes Blackbox accessible with or without vision. Thoughtful haptic feedback, Easter eggs on Easter eggs, and solutions that can’t be found beneath the glass of your screen redefine what a puzzle can be. You’ll never see your device the same way again.

Think you’re clever? Prove it.

(Blackbox is a living game under active development by Ryan McLeod. When not eating burritos or drinking coffee, he’s busy designing and developing new Blackbox challenges.)

What's new in version 1.5.1
Quick fixes…
■ Fixed some crashes mostly affecting iOS 9 and older versions of 10 (Please upgrade if you can! Blackbox will drop iOS 9 support soon.)
■ Fixed a bad localization key (nice catch, Tails from Discord)
■ Fixed an issue where modal cards could be accidentally dismissed before they were visible (Poof!)
■ Updated a hint about a globular gas giant at apex (stay hydrated out there!)

After a year of free puzzles this is the first one exclusive to Erudite or Combo Pack owners. It’s my tiny way of saying thanks for supporting me and the game. (You’ll still get it even if you buy the Erudite or Combo pack today.)

■ Made cards dismissible by tapping anywhere (Happy Amanda?)
■ Tweaked cards to dismiss slightly faster (see above)
■ Visually improved merch unlock cards (Did you know that I include physical riddles to unlock app icons in every merch order?)
■ Updated the store’s Facebook link (Give me a like and poke at
■ Fixed a GPS permission issue on Wifi iPads (real iPad version in development)
■ Fixed an issue where cancelled purchases could show a blocking spinner
■ Improved context of some VoiceOver clues
■ Improved level pack purchase card loading
■ Tweaked some hints
