There are dozens of logic games released weekly in the "Puzzles" category of Apple's App Store.

Most of them are—by definition—mediocre. Or, as a mathematician could say, "trivial".

Some of them are good, very few are brilliant.

I've been interested in logic puzzles for many years, and by now have grown strong opinions about what I think makes a good puzzle. If you like to play with your brain, this is the place to look for in-depth reviews. Maybe I'll help you find some hidden gem.

Mind you: I will occasionally talk about high profile titles, with high budget productions and terrific presentations. Most of the time, however, I'll be dealing with simple games from a indie developers; the important thing is that they are original, challenging, enjoyable.

In a word, nontrivial.
