Frustr8tor - Amazing Brain Game

New Nexus
Are you looking for a game that puts your mind, intelligence, logic and perseverance to the test? One that is as addictive as it is frustrating? Look no further, the ultimate brain teaser Frustr8tor is here! It reached number 1 ranking in the overall paid and games charts on the Dutch Apple iTunes store in its first month.

The game Frustr8tor (pronounced as frustrator) is based on a seemingly simple puzzle: place the counters on the board so that none of them form a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line. More than 200,000 copies of the physical board version of the game, based on the 8-queens chess puzzle, have been sold. As an app, the game has a whole new dimension!

The app consists of various puzzles with different levels of difficulty. Prove your brainpower by scoring a faster time than your friends! If you can’t manage the logic, make strategic use of the hints. Frustr8tor is the ultimate puzzle challenge for players aged 8 to 80.

•Three different game types (practice, classic and barricade) offer more puzzle fun than the classic 8-queens chess puzzle alone.
•75 unique puzzles with increasing levels for hours of game fun and frustration.
•Scoring system (time) for self-improvement or comparing scores online with friends or other players (OpenFeint integration).
•Great design and sound (HD resolution with Retina display support).
•Universal App: only one purchase necessary - suitable for all your iOS equipment (iPhone, iPad en iTouch).
•Integration with Facebook and Twitter: share your enthusiasm and frustration with others immediately.
•Interrupt and resume the game whenever you wish.
•Also works without internet connection.
•Multilingual (English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Chinese).
•Free from adverts.

Updates are planned with new puzzles, game types and challenges. Instructions, solutions and new challenges can be found on the Frustr8tor website as well as the original board game (

The original Frustr8tor was conceived by Dutchman, Albert Eckhardt and marketed in collaboration with well-known footballer Marc Overmars.
