Puzzle Maniak major graphics overhaul!

If you like puzzle/logic games, but have avoided Puzzle Maniak because it was a bit on the ugly side, wait no more because it's last update brought it up to par with the individually sold games.

20 logic games with infinite randomly generated levels, several difficulty levels and online challenges for $4.99. I've been playing this one regularly since I came across it, replacing several other puzzle apps I had as they're all in here!

Here's a peek at the new look:

I picked up ArcadeManiak a while ago. Good to see he updated this one to match the graphical style. I might pick it up for the daily challenge.

I seriously debated between this and Arcade Maniak - IMHO AM still has more polish, but you have to unlock difficulty levels, and it's got less than half as many games... I just knew that if I bought AM I would eventually want to get PM, and I'm glad I did. Most of the old-style games played perfectly well, they just had bare-bones graphics.

I remember these trickling out one-by-one back in the hey day of the App Store.
Quite a leap!

This actually looks amazing, though I can't justify myself spending $5 when I have plenty of puzzles already.

A sale!?

20 games with randomly generated levels (unlimited replayability) for $5 is great. That's less than $0.25 per game, and several of these were released separately for $0.99. If you're into logic games at all, there's absolutely no reason to not have this one kickin' around on your device.
