We’ve all been there – you’ve got fifteen minutes to spare whether you’re waiting for a train, plane, or you’re sat in the waiting room at the dentist or doctors. You’re fully updated on your Facebook feed, nothing new is happening on Twitter, and nobody’s uploading anything interesting to Instagram. What do you do now? Why not take this opportunity to test your brain skills, using one or more of these brilliant teaser games for Android that we’ve put together. After all, who doesn’t love completing teaser puzzles? And, if you love any kind of puzzle, check out this great range of Stave teasers that you won’t need your phone or tablet to complete.
In a nutshell, the aim of this game is to move the colored dots into the matching boxes. You begin with just three dots of the same color, and as you progress, this increases to five dots with five various colors.
There are more than 1,200 levels to complete – don’t be surprised if you quickly become addicted – and you’ll be scored on a level of one to three stars, with three being the best score. Once you’ve passed a level, your challenge for the next level is to see if you’ll be able to complete it in less moves than the previous one.
Although this game looks relatively simple, you’ll find that as you progress, its simple appearance is quite deceptive. You’re given four consecutive squares, and you’ll be tasked with filling these squares in with the same color box. To do this, all you need to do is tap the block that you’re starting with, and then tap where you want it to move to. Simple, right?
However, the problem is, each time you tap a square, another two squares turn up. If there isn’t a clear path from the starting to the ending point, you’re unable to move the square – so the other squares that appear create a blockage, making it much harder to move the blocks around.
A very popular game on iOS, Dots has only recently made its Android debut. It’s an absolute delight for anyone who’s a minimalist, and it’s simple but challenging task is to connect dots of varying colors against the clock or within a certain number of moves.
There are three game modes to choose from – Moves, Timed, and Endless. The timed mode requires that you connect as many dots as possible before the 60 second timer expires, whilst moves doesn’t have a time limit, but allows players to thick through the thirty moves that they’re given to finish the game in. Endless mode removes these limits, allowing the player to take as long as they’d like.
