Really versatile Sudoku simulator. The game offers small numbers to help you solve the puzzles and you can remove big numbers and small numbers you typed yourself alike. You can choose to use symbols instead of numbers and a lot of colour background options and methods of play. The daily challenges really want you to use your problem solving skills in these puzzles, so you better be prepared and practice a lot to master or else you may forget techniques to use. This game is recommended to all Sudoku fans, to ones who follow Sudoku Guy on Youtube or possibly the ones who want to extend their Steam library with more puzzle games into their collection.

Chess Brain

Chess Brain

This game has interested chess related puzzles. To see everything moving and trying to figure out next move is challenging. Sometimes it melts your brain making calculations for every move, and because of that, I love this game.

I really wanted to see a sequel for this game. :)

Short chess puzzle game about finding the right path through a board without encountering an enemy piece. Good. Level reset and you can redraw your path as many times as you need to.

What a good game. I liked the AudioDesign.

It was difficult for me at first, but I ended up getting the hang of it at the end

Pretty easy, only got stuck on level 23. Dig the concept, hard to say whether this will improve my chess game until I play.

Guess what – you can’t castle or play the AI as black. Can’t flip sides to play as black, either. If that doesn’t get fixed, it’s not chess. If the developer fixed the castling issue and made sure that en passant is there, then okay, one dollar might be reasonable. Right now it’s just a scam to steal some money from people.

Chronicles of Magic: Divided Kingdoms

Chronicles of Magic: Divided Kingdoms

I enjoyed a lot about this game, and it is nicely put together with all the usual Artifex Mundi polish.

It was fun, and while I wouldn’t want to pay the full Steam price, I’m happy I got it on sale.

I liked both the protagonist and the secondary characters., and the scope of the game.

The setting was good, and I found myself wanting to know “what really happened”, even thought the basics were evident reasonably early on.

That said, there are some downsides:

The magic system - again - was under-utilized and building the spell was literally a connect the dots exercise. Connect the dots should not count as a mini-game. I would have preferred fewer spells,and a chance to use them with increasing difficulty levels (option to skip for purely casual play).

More of the same Hidden Object gameplay you’ve played many times before with all the same flaws.

It’s also the same story that seems to be repeated often in this genre. Your weirdly creepy looking son gets kidnapped and off you go on another magical adventure. Maybe try something different ?

The gimmick this time is you get to use some magic spells at various points but it doesn’t really amount to anything more than a very basic join the dots. The bulk of the puzzles are also carbon copies of other games in the genre. Forge the thing, Brew the potion etc. The only real difficulty is the same too, finding all the meta items for achievements and the misidentified items and hidden objects themselves.

Had this on my radar for a while and picked it up this sale along with a (pro chess player) friend and I wasn’t disappointed. Took a match to get the hang of the mechanics (a quick tutorial or the guide being accessible in-game would’ve been nice) however it was hella fun beating on each others units and winning. I’ve never beaten my friend in chess before.

10/10 would beat professional chess players again

What an interesting twist to chess, I went ahead & started to play thinking it’s chess with characters. Soon to realize there is much more to it. After reading the guide I played again & really loved it. I love the special abilities each piece has (Mage/bishop can trade places with another; Archer/Rook can attack over pieces). Player gets two moves one to move & another to attack. The attacks cause damage & don’t outright kill units.

If you are a defensive chess player like I am with slow opening & building to endgame, well it’s time to leave your inhibitions aside & get your Queen/Champion in to the arena & hammer away.
