Looking for some logic path/switch type games

Hello all,

I'm a big fan of logic games that use pathways, switches, blocks, etc. Some examples would the the Lolo and Lost Vikings series back in the NES days. I used to have a Pocket PC phone and I loved a game called Brainstorm:


In this game you had blocks that would have their own personal gravity, and some switches that would alter that direction in some way. The goal was to clear all of the cubes from the board by bringing similar blocks together.

I've found Bobby Carrot and Magnetrox already on iPhone and I think they are both great games - are there any others like this available? Searching the app store for games is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Magnetrox made me sad because I had a design doc for the same thing sitting on my computer.

It's a great game

I'll be watching this thread too.

Droplitz looks like it has potential.

I picked up Mouse House, Loopy Laboratory, and Pathways. Mouse House in particular is almost exactly like Lolo which is great.

If you aren't familiar with the Lost Vikings you basically had 3 characters each with a different power (1 jumps, one climbs, one is strong) or something like that and you had to apply their abilities in such a way that you opened the exit. It's been a long time so I'm sure I don't exactly remember what they could do. Looking for similar concepts like that.

Also, any good ones where you manipulate gravity or the paths of objects? Another classic I remember is Pit Droids on PC where you had conga lines of droids that had to each make it to the appropriately colored exit, and you had to put arrows in different hexes where you could repaint, redirect, or otherwise alter the different lines of droids, with the ultimate goal of getting them all to safety.
