Description

The ultimate in twisty "magic" puzzles - don't be limited to cubes locked into a fixed orientation!

Twistyhedron brings a full range of twisty "magic" puzzles in all sorts of shapes and configurations, including:

- Cubes

- Tetrahedrons ("Pyramids")

- Octahedrons

- Dodecagons (both pentagonal and rhombic)

- Icosahedrons

- Spheres

- "Stars"

- Various prisms/slabs

These include not just simple "parallel to the faces" slices, but ones along diagonals, skewed in weird ways, etc... Over 50 different puzzles to solve (including some that have more combinations than atoms in the universe!).

The puzzles are rendered using "tiles" attached to each face for the maximal visual cues and impact (with an option for cheap "stickers"). The puzzles are freely rotatable, with a special "rear mirror" view so you can see the back of the puzzle.

Full undo/redo (even saved when you switch between puzzles), shuffle, stopwatch timer, etc...

So if you've mastered the basic cube, step up to a whole new world of challenges!

5/5 stars

Good app

:
It is a good app with lots of puzzles. The only bad thing about it is the controls. They are difficult to use but once you get used to them it's not too bad. Also it would be cool if they axes more puzzles periodically. Maybe something like a gigaminx.
Some puzzles don't work, like the square 1. it just turns weird.

Also when you solve the truncated puzzles. Even if you have the edges solved you need to orient them properly and permute them. Which is about impossible unless you remember the starting pic.

Love the variety of twisty puzzles though.

3/5 stars

Insane

:
This app is both overwhelming and fascinating. Controls, particularly on more complex objects, take a bit of getting used to.

Update suggestions:

- It would be useful to be able to toggle the mirror image on and off (as you can explore the object in 3D space, the mirror is often more confusing than not).

- It would be great - and more immersive - to be able to add user images to the customizable background selection.

Overall, a really cool app.

5/5 stars

Intuitive Controls

:
If you're looking for a twisty puzzle simulator this is the one to get. In terms of variety of puzzles, aesthetic interface, and intuitive touch controls this is unbeaten on any platform. Virtually every mass produced puzzle is included, save high order puzzles that are arduous enough to solve in physical form, even worse on a simulator. This program is even capable of simulating shape changing puzzles and bandaged puzzles such as the Pyramorphix and the Bandaged Cube.

Yes, a few puzzles are mislabeled, and a few puzzles do not implement jumbling (shape-changing) moves that are available on mechanical versions, however these gripes would only bother the most nitpicking of puzzle solvers. More likely than not, you will find more puzzles than you ever thought possible, all in one extremely robust and well implemented package.
