Maciej Targoni, after the success of Klocki and Hook, continues his series of titles with a relaxing nature. This time he has joined forces with Michal Pawlowski, developer of Zenge, to create PUSH: a new minimalist puzzle with very special features compared to his previous games.
GAMEPLAY – ORDER IS IMPORTANT
The objective of the game is to press all the blue keys present in the level. That sounds easy, but as you progress through the levels you’ll see new switches, levers and keys of various colors and shapes or marked differently with which you have to interact in a certain order to avoid deactivating the blue keys and having to start over. Unlike previous titles of Maceij Targoni, PUSH pushes more on the three-dimensionality of the game, strong experience of Pawlowski with 3D objects seen in Art of Gravity, with elements to rotate and move to find all the buttons and levers that are added during the progression.
This leads to having to think hard to understand the right order to complete each level, without ever being frustrating. Also because there is no chronometer that marks the elapsed time or a predefined number of moves so not even a score or ratings at the end of the level: we can take all the time to find the solution of the puzzle and understand the best of all the game mechanics.
GRAPHICS AND SOUND – THREE-DIMENSIONAL MINIMALISM
To the large floating shapes with dark colours and clean profiles, some seem to come out directly from a work by Escher, contrasting with the light colours of the elements with which to interact, making everything always understandable and readable. The electronic ambient soundtrack adequately accompanies us in our progression level after level.
PUSH evolves the game formula typical of Maceij Targoni’s titles, while maintaining the characteristic elements such as a relaxing nature and minimalist appearance. If you have loved the previous titles of the Polish developer the purchase can only be recommended.
In recent years the genre of simulators has become incredibly popular. Games such as Farming Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator have recorded unprecedented purchase records for products of this type. In this context the guys at Dinosaur Polo Club followed the trend in their own way with Mini Metro, a puzzle born during an edition of Ludum Dare, one of the most famous game jams in the world, and later became a real game. After the publication on Windows and Mac it arrived on mobile thanks to Playdigious.
GAMEPLAY – one train per line
Each level is a representation of a real city of the eleven available in which each station is represented by a different geometric shape, as well as the passengers denoting in this way their destination. The aim is to make as many passengers as possible travel, connecting the stations to each other and assigning the trains and carriages available to each line, avoiding overcrowding one of the stations. These are generated procedurally making each game different from the other, but introducing a bit of luck factor to the game. In any case, it is always possible to pause the game to reorder the lines without any hurry. More than a simulator, where you have to manage the economic resources and give directives, the game is an original puzzle relaxing and simple mechanics but that becomes progressively difficult and challenging.
GRAPHICS AND SOUND – A MAP IN CONSTANT EVOLUTION
The style of the game is inspired by the maps of subways around the world: the light background unravels the different lines, each with a very different color. The interface is very intuitive: on the left there are our resources (trains, wagons, tunnels, etc..) while on the right the lines available. Moving the elements is very simple thanks to some visual feedback. The soundtrack, signed by Disasterpeace, adapts to your system of stops. Each event on the screen produces a distinct sound and the union of these effects creates a beautiful symphony.
The first game of Dinosaur Polo Club is a simple and fun puzzle that can give a good level of challenge with a minimalist style combined with an unmistakable soundtrack. If you are looking for a non-trivial puzzle with a good challenge rate this is the title for you, a small big pearl in the sea of the mobile market.

To complete a level Bubble Saga Witch three stars, you need to think a few steps ahead and shoot balls of such combinations in which at once fell down for as many as possible. The game has an interesting feature, in the form of spiders, they come down after each shot successfully, down and disappear after a shot in white. They need to multiply the points of falling balls, as in case of fall they bounce from the beetles and give extra points to pinball.
At each level, the tasks become more complex, the extra performance, and the number of moves steadily decrease. In addition, for each spin with a loss you take away a life, which was originally given only 3 pieces.

Bubble Saga Witch – a bright and exciting arcade puzzle game for Android, which will help you to enjoy a lot of time and do it for the sake of the brain as recklessly in this game does not pass and the third level, not to mention the following tests. All levels of the game are divided into a number of interesting worlds, equipped with new design and some features of the game.
For a long time ago, smartphones and tablets took the place of newspapers and magazines when you are in the quietest moment of the day, while you are relaxed on the toilet cup. Toilet games are not bad games, but this phrase tends to identify those apps that are not too pretentious, but that are often well made or fun, able to make us spend a few moments of complete relaxation. King of this category is, without a doubt, Candy Crush, one of the very first puzzle game to become a real fashion. After the advent of the product by King, other titles, more or less inspired, have appeared on the stores of Android or iOs. A particularly successful experiment is called Toy Blast, which takes over Candy Crush, with a style and a system of its own.
I’ve been playing Toy Blast for several months now, a title I found by chance on the App Store. It is basically a puzzle game in which, once connected via Facebook, you have to continue for the hundreds of levels present, trying to conquer all three stars and beat the records of their friends on the social network. Speaking of the game itself, you always need to join at least two blocks of the same color to make them disappear, within a certain number of moves. In addition, by combining different blocks, you can create rockets, TNT dynamite and Rubik cubes, each with its own characteristics. The rockets can destroy the entire row of colored blocks, falling back a new one, the TNT can wipe out some in a limited area and the cubes will disappear all the squares of the same color. You can then combine these upgrades and create situations of total destruction: TNT and rockets will create a giant rocket, TNT and TNT will generate a major explosion, while joining the cube will be placed in the colored boxes. There are also ‘paid’ bonuses as well as Candy Crush, objects that make life easier for the player such as the drill that destroys a block or the vacuum cleaner that absorbs all the boxes in a row. The thing that most amazed us about this title, however, is the variety of situations in which we face, a challenge always different for each of the many levels available. There are no puzzles with drops in tone, magicians too simple or done in a hurry, but challenges always good level capable of putting a strain on our intellectual abilities. We start with bubbles, blocks of ice that tend to increase their range, making it impossible to element a few cubes, up to the bricks, white or colored that will be eliminated only if you create combinations of two or more colors in their vicinity. In addition to these, there are piggy banks, which can only be eliminated by upgrades. In addition, each level will present different missions: in some cases you have to drop toys from above by removing the blocks and making them come out of the screen, in others you have to eliminate a certain number of colored cubes, in others will be the bubbles or colored blocks to be destroyed. Proceeding in the levels, it will be even more complicated to solve puzzles, for example, in some cases, there will be levels almost completely frozen, or, in others, you will need to create a total number of cubes to complete a mission.

The tricks have been personally tested and work perfectly on Galaxy S6. If they work for me, they work for you. If you can’t activate them it means you’re doing something wrong in the process.
IMPORTANT: In some games (especially those that also work online in multiplayer) applying the tricks you risk the ban. Also remember that all the files here linked were not created by me, but simply look for them on other foreign sites, try them and text them for you and if they work I share them.
Maciej Targoni before Klocki has created another puzzle game with the aim of creating a game with a relaxed, almost meditative nature. From this simple idea was born Hook, initially published as a prototype on Kongregate and then expanded to reach the current form and land on the stores for mobile.
GAMEPLAY – Simple and immediate
The purpose of each level is to remove all the elements present on the screen by untangling the interlocking of screws, hooks and gears. The difficulty lies in understanding which button controls the respective screw between the intrigue of sharp lines and right angle curves and find the right order to prevent the screws from locking each other in motion. All this is clear and immediate, with an increasing complexity of levels that gradually introduces new elements of play and then mix them together in a calibrated way. There’s no high-score timer, score or ranking in the game – we can take as much time as we need to understand the level that comes along without haste, in the very spirit of relaxing the player.
GRAPHICS AND SOUND – Minimalism is the watchword
Visually Hook is a great example of minimalism: we only have two colors throughout the game. The milky white background contrasts with the dark grey of the game elements, all well distinguishable from each other, which move with slow but always fluid animations. In the background you can only listen to the notes of a piano, accompanied by the sound of the backwash and some chirping, to emphasize the relaxed aura of the game.
Maciej’s creation succeeds in its objective of conveying the contemplative spirit of the game with simple and immediate gameplay, with an excellent level of challenge. If you are looking for a different puzzle than usual is a must purchase.
