Jabeh

I couldn't find a standalone thread.

I finally "Got" Jabeh (both meanings, lol). It's a great puzzle game! iTunes is acting up so no link. But highly recommended! Pricey at $5 but tons of content. 20 minutes went by quickly!

I too sometimes think I have completed a certain puzzle.
But it is a very polished game and in that respect other games could learn from it.

There are currently many more Shinro games on the AppStore. I also bought Jabeh and like the polish, but I must say, Shinro Mines looks more interesting to me.

Sodoku Shinro: background is too busy, cannot sweep finger, too small.

MoShinRo: Not sure about fonts and has been said elsewhere not being able to mark empty squares is bad.

Shinro Mines: Not played but backgrounds look busy again, why a mines theme? If there was a Lite version I'd try and mybe buy. But right now no.

Here's one.
Shinro is mentioned/discussed in the topic as well, but I think that that's inevitable.

Cross out tiles where you know a stone can't be. For starters, the first two rows contain only 2 stones, and there are 2 arrows pointing into those two rows, so you know there are only 4 possible places those 2 stones can be; cross out the rest of the tiles in those two rows. Same with the last two columns: 2 stones, with 2 arrows pointing to 4 possible tiles in those two columns.
