    Puzzle games I currently have are Tris, Trism, Zen Bound and Blocked.
    I'm looking for a game similar to Trism. No word games.
    I've been checking out Frenzic. Its looks very fun.
    Any other recommendations?
    Thanks

    Puzzle Prism and Quadrix come to mind.

    Btw, did you do a search? There are several of these threads, and believe me, others from the forum will be ready to initiate you soon enough.

    Checked out the lite version of Puzzle Prism. I didnt really like it. I'm looking for something simpler.
    Downloading Quadrix now! Thanks.

    You'll like Quadrix. The controls are responsive and it offers plenty of challenge. The levels can be long, but you should be ok. If you're into Match-3 type games, you should also look at Gemmed! You have to free monsters while making matches and dodging obstacles.

  6. Hey Big Albie or anyone else for that matter. Was gonna start a thread but you know any other spatial recognition puzzles besides metasquares, Puzzle Prism and monospace?

    Diamond Islands is really good on sale now for $3.

    I could not get into Trism. But right now my go to puzzles are Combination and Lock 'n Roll (Pro)... I know you don't like Prism, but Polycubes is a really neat puzzle game. Reminds me of a slower paced Prism + 3D Tetris + Monospace.

    I can easily recommend Frenzic. I don't play it too, too often, but it's a very well made, fun game.

    Subway Shuffle is a great little logic game.

    Thanks for the help Big Albie!
    I searched for Gemmed. Only a lite version came up. Under the lite versions subscription, it says that the Full version is on sale. But there is no link. I followed a link from another site and it said that it wasnt available in the US store. When will it be back?

    I think they may have taken it down because the latest update had a bug. I imagine it'll be back soon-ish. These guys are pretty reliable.

    In the Combination thread, the developer said they are doing a graphical overhaul so it's taking a little longer than planned. I assume this applies to the lite version too. I can't wait for the update. I'm almost finished with the current levels.
