PuzzleManiak is back!

Can you remember Puzzlemaniak?

It's a collection of puzzle games originally created by Simon Tatham (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/puzzles/) ported to iPhone/iPad with local scores and online modes.

Created in 2008 (at the beginning of the AppStore), there are still around 1,000 players everyday playing the daily challenges, and there are more than 20,000 players in the Online league

Today, we are proud to introduce you to PuzzleManiak 5.0.

In this new version, we reworked on the graphic design, we added 4 new puzzle games (magnets, netslide, singles and range) and we promoted the online modes, so that it's easier and more clear to play them. And now, binary is universal.

In local mode, you can play the 24 puzzle games on several difficulty levels. As puzzles are generated on the fly and have a unique solution, you'll never play twice the same game.

And now, the best part: some words about the 2 online modes!

- In the Daily Challenges mode, everyday a puzzle is generated and shared to everyone. Thus, all players can compete and compare their score to each others. A ranking is made everyday. And previous ranking are available inside the app.

- In the Online League Mode, it's up to you to submit the puzzles. After a local play, you can submit the puzzle you just solved to the community. Thus, all players can play it and points are distributed depending on your performance. You can submit up to 3 puzzles per day. For sure, you can play all puzzles submitted to the community. Filters are available to access easily all your favorite types of puzzles. More than 140,000 puzzles are available to play right now

Here are some graphic assets about this new version:

This new version will be available the 11th December for only $0.99.
There is no in-app purchase, you get the full version for this price!

This has been one of my favorites for years. It is a fantastic set of endless logic puzzles that has no equal in the AppStore.

Very glad to see this back. If you like logic puzzles, this is a must-have!

Ooh, this looks like something I'll love. I really like this other app and this looks similar, but endless with daily puzzles! I'll definitely pick it up once it's released.
