Like logic games? - try Jabeh

I took a risk and downloaded a new logic game today call Jabeh. I really like it! In fact, I liked it so much I commented on iTunes (which I rarely do, but I think the developer deserves attention for creating a high quality product).

The graphics and sound are outstanding, and the controls are simple and efficient.
I have found it to be a high quality deduction game that is fun to play and great to look at.
Anyone else tried it?

This reminds me of Shinro:

Shinro was addicting too, but it had some flaws that made some puzzles literally impossible. I might give this one a shot.

So is this similar to MineSweeper then?

Not really. It involves the same type of planning and the occasional educated guess, the game itself is much different.

I like this kind of game.

Shinro was the first one I think ad both titles have the same gameplay as far as I can see. There's also Shinro Mines with a similar gameplay.

However, Jabeh looks more polished with well balanced graphics. Elegant.

By the way, how are the game statistics? Can you give us some details about it?


Below a screenshot of Jabeh and Shinro:

I agree. Those flaws made me delete the game. Maybe later I'll end up purchasing this game too.

Looks like a mix between minesweepers and sudoku.

From the description:

"New puzzles are automatically downloaded every time you start the game!"

Can someone please tell me how many puzzles you start out with? How will this affect iPod touch users who aren't connected to WiFi? I have WiFi access at home, but I very rarely play games there. I play only during my (excruciating!) commute. Will I have to open the game at home every time I want new puzzles? Or will whatever comes with the game natively suffice?

It's worth a look, thats for sure. It's extremely polished and of coarse, fun.

This game is fantastic. Can't really tell how many puzzles there are as there isn't a level select. When you start a game, it just throws you into the first puzzle automatically.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc
