App description: Glory of the pure mind
Zarik is simple logical game, which consist of 100 levels (from very easy to near-impossible). Its main advantages are clear uncluttered interface and amusing strategic gameplay. You have a wooden board and several dice you have to move to outlined zones.

HOW TO COMPLETE:
- The number of the die is the number of moves it can make.
- Touch and drag the die. Move the die to an outlined zone with no moves remaining.
- Touch screen with two fingers to enter the prediction mode.
- Some places are stack, so you cannot go there

I picked this up on iPhone, but I don't think that I ever played it - bad on me... I will resurrect and if I like it, then I always prefer having things on the iPad...

It looks like the iPad version may have larger puzzles?

I'll be interested in your impressions djflippy knowing you are a puzzle nut..

@Avaloid - can you explain "prediction" mode to me? I don't see what it does.

This is a brain-burner and I really like it. Some of the puzzles are not at all obvious. In addition to the plain white dice that move according to face count, there are quite a few other types of dice. For instance, blue dice that move normally, but are not required to be in a square to complete the puzzle and grey dice that are immovable. It's all about figuring out where and when to move a die and/or slide a die, because some dice slide other dice, without flipping faces. new goodies open up frequently, some help, some hinder: warp gates, roll increase swatches, obstacles, etc. The presentation is nice and the controls are simple...they're dice...you roll them. Recommended for people that like to challenge their brains to a duel.

Thanks for the code on the other thread. Just left a review.

This is a fun and challenging puzzle game. Had it on the iPhone - looks great on the iPad. Basically have a board with a certain number of dice on it. The number on each die is how many times you can roll that die, with the goal being to get each die onto a target. They are special blue dies that can push others, obstacles and various board patterns.

I like how you can also have different board graphics, and that you can now see where the target boxes are even if they are hidden. Overall, great game.
