Blackbox - think outside the box reviews and comments

Wonderful Game with exciting Puzzles. The individual "Levels" are varied and have perfected the Aspect of "looking outside the Box. Sometimes you have to make the Device louder or quieter, drive down the iPhone or wait for the Sun to set. Perfect for Dissenters!

Very Nice as a game, puzzle thought in detail. Minimal Graphics, which allows you to exploit with a little ' ingenuity all the options and capabilities of your iPhone. Some patterns will appear with alternate paths you'll have to do, moving from the web to your phone's options. But as it warns at the beginning "You must know how to think outside the box"! I fell in love with this game, very well succeeded.

First review I write. But this game may inspire. Some games are intuitive, you know something is happening, but you still have to find out exactly what needs to be done. Nothing happens in others, but it's built in such a way that you just don't stop trying. And all without touching the screen. As the game suggests, it's frustrating, but not so doll that you stop, but motivating. I would recommend it to everyone!

It is an absolutely excellent game, the head break are absolutely not repetitive and the difficulty is always present (to the point of tearing off the hair sometimes). I have succeeded a good package but some remain completely obscure, it would be nice to add a system of advertising to have free clues (or a system of fidelity). Spoiler: and if not regarding the challenge with the pins that ignite when we deviate from the starting point I think quenthe distance needed for the last square is far too high

Puzzles are definitely challenging and completing all of them without any hint really requires to think “out of the box”. Finally after years of the same ideas proposed in different shapes, Blackbox represents the future of mobile video games, it brings interactivity a step further and adding augmented reality to such kind of game can create infinite gaming possibilities, for example a game in which to solve a level you need to take a photo of a determined place at a determined time of a determined date.... possibilities could be countless and the concept could be applied to other activities than just games. I rarely write reviews but this time it was worth doing it. Last but not least, hints if needed can be bought, but the game is totally for free....
