What is it about?
Rebus is an artful, surprisingly complicated puzzle title that presents players with a drawing, symbol, or other cartoon-style image and tasks them with figuring out the word or phrase they represent. But these aren't the rebuses you played with as a kid: These visual riddles are as devious in their execution as they are elegant. The developer doesn't bill it as an "absurd logic game" for nothing; each challenge will take all the lateral (and literal) thinking you can muster to find the solution.
Why we love it
We actually love it because we hate it: Some of Rebus' puzzles are so vague, esoteric, and subtle that we end up solving them out of spite more than anything. But we do solve them, and we keep coming back for more. It's not just that it's challenging -- it's that it's so ridiculously challenging that we refuse to let the game beat us. And while we're getting all that frustration out, our brains are incidentally learning new ways to think about and approach problems. Stupid, sneaky game ... making us all smart and stuff.
REBUS - Absurd Logic Game is FREE but there are more add-ons
