Doodle Pubbox Puzzle iPhone/iPad App Review

Share

This is a thoroughly addictive puzzle game, it was inspired by a flash game called OrboxB. The developers, Paper Plane Studio, wanted to create a puzzle game which is more addictive than OrboxB and it seems to me they have achieved that. Paper Plane have tried to create a combined experience of doodle game and puzzle and it certainly appears successful.

What’s It All About?

There are three levels of difficulty with this game, from Beginner, Intermediate and Expert. The beginner level is literally for someone quite new to puzzle games whereas the Expert requires a lot more thinking and practice.

Object Of The Game

The object of the game is to get your pubbox, shown with an arrow above, to the exit, represented by a colored square. It may sound simple but it is anything but. The pubbox will only stop when it hits an obstacle. If the pubbox does not encounter an object it will fly off the screen and that will be the end of that game. As the game progresses you can use blocks with special abilities to help you reach the exit.

Blow All Bombs

In this example, you have to find a path to trigger all the bombs and the path may not be as obvious as you first think. A good strategy plan is essential.

Choose Your Level

One of the many great things about this app is that you can actually choose whichever level you want to start on within a Mode. So for example, if you are in the Beginner Mode and want to start on the final level, which happens to be level 30, you can just select that and it will take you straight to it.

Easy To Learn, Hard To Master

This is definitely true, there is no doubt it is an easy game to understand but to be successful is a challenge and a very good one too. There are sixty unique levels to play and ten different blocks. This game is available for both the iPhone and the iPad and works equally well on both.

This is a great game, it looks really good and really does make you think and use all that grey matter. One thing I think would work well with this app is to have OpenFeint integration and perhaps the developer will include that with a future update.

This game comes highly recommended and has even had a recent price drop. It is now available in both formats for 99 cents and there is even a free version, if you would like to try before you buy. Personally, I don’t think you should hesitate. If you enjoy puzzle games then you will love this.
