App Review: Ingenious

by M. J. Joachim

Bejeweled has met its match with the Ingenious app. This puzzle is like a combined Bejeweled meets Chinese Checkers game, and it is a lot of fun to play! You begin by moving your bi-color piece to the board. Then you press your finger around it, to move it so it fits where you want it to go. Once you get it in place, you tap it to secure it. There are six different colors, and your goal is to advance all six faster than your opponent, by placing as many colors linked to each other as possible.

The trick is not to only advance one or two colors. Your goal is to keep all your colors advancing evenly, so you win when there are no more spaces to place tiles on the board. Once you get the hang of the finger movements, you can’t help but compete against yourself for hours, especially if the computer is winning.

There are a few different levels of play: solitaire, single player, two player and tournament, which gives you plenty of opportunity to keep outdoing yourself, while still having way too much fun.

If you like clever, creative games that are addictive, this app’s for you.

Wishing you hours of fun,

M. J.
