Why we picked this?

The basic gameplay mechanics in Zero+ are simple enough. You must slide positive and negative numbered tiles around the board in order to achieve zero. The first few levels consist of just ones and twos, but things get crazy pretty quickly when large numbers and new kinds of modifier tiles enter the mix. Also, keep in mind that tiles won’t stop sliding unless they run into something. The game includes a total of 120 levels.

You think math is fun.

You get frustrated easily since you can’t skip levels.

Why we picked this?

Lettergraf is what you get when you combine a crossword puzzle with a Rubik’s cube. In each puzzle, a select group of letters act as your anchor points. They can’t be moved and serve as your only clues. You must move other blocks of letters that are also able to shift and rotate in order to form valid words. Hints are available in case you get stuck. The game includes over 100 puzzles to solve.

You just want to relax with a puzzle. Lettergraf doesn’t force you along with timers and other competitive elements.

You’re not patient. Hints cost money.
