Freeware Listing: Cyclanoid

This is a set of challenging logic games and puzzles. The objective is to arrange the tiles in the center of the board to match the ones displayed along the game-area border. However, you move the tiles in groups of four or more by spinning them with a control located in the corner where four tiles touch. Similar to a 2D Rubik\'s Cube, Cyclanoid is harder than it looks since you must get the tiles aligned without disrupting your previous work. It also includes a built-in visual puzzle builder for creating your own games. The graphics are attractive, and MIDI-based music and crisp digital sound effects add to the fun.

AbcPuzzles offers two variations on a tile-based puzzle game. Each uses the same basic engine, in which you move the tiles in groups of four or more by spinning them with the control located in the corner where four tiles touch. Much like Rubik's Cube in two dimensions, the games are harder than they first look since you must get the tiles properly aligned without disrupting your previous work. AlterJig uses images, scrambling the inner blocks but leaving the outside one intact. Five images are provided, and your own properly formatted bitmaps can be used. Cyclanoid is similar, but your task is to arrange the tiles in rows to match the icons displayed along the game-area border.

AbcPuzzles is a freeware game that consists of 2 parts; ABC AlterJig and ABC Cyclanoid. In ABC Cyclanoid the aim is to line up similar squares that have the same picture printed on the front of them. You can line them up by using the diamond shaped pivot squares that are located between blocks. ABC AlterJig has the same basic concept, but instead you have to rotate blocks around similar pivots in order to reproduce the image you are first presented with.

Install of AbcPuzzles was very quick and both games load up instantly, the interface is very bland for both games and the only real colour in the game is on the rotating squares.
