Slydris

Mosaique

Letterpress
Inclusion
—These two are word and number games, rather than puzzlers. But they are superminimal.

Colorbind, it's my all time favourite. Was released many years ago but still nothing has surpassed it's in my opinion.

A few others:

Save the puppies
Grooh
Briquid
Wiggle

Not minimalist in itself, but some of the individual games:

Also by the folks who did colorbind - Monospace

Enso dot by Kieffer Bros is excellent. Actually most of Kieffer Bros games would fit the scheme.

Percepto might fit your bill - may not be your definition of minimalist - but close.

Also, Fractal: make blooms not war is pretty excellent.

I'll second the recommendation for Slydris.

Another of my favorite minimalist puzzle games not yet mentioned here is I Love Squares. Highly addicting that one. Like Slydris, it's an endless puzzle, or action puzzle game. So is Fluxe, another all-time favorite of mine.

Of the more level-based puzzlers, I'd also second the recommendation for Enso-Dot. I spent a lot of time staring at those little dots. And Blockhouse and nozoku.

My games: ActionChess, Oppo-Citrus & Catchup
