Other puzzle game recommendations

Recommended Posts

The reason Chip's Challenge stands out to me personally compared to other games, as I'm sure is the case for many others as well, is the relative uniqueness of the engine, and of course the replay value. Unless it's specifically made to be a CC clone, you won't find anything quite like it, and even the same levels can be played and/or optimized over and over again.

Of all the puzzle games I've ever come across, the only other one that fits the bill is Reflexion (and its sequel). It's so unique that its gameplay has been analyzed in a university paper! Just a shame that it doesn't even have an external data file to modify let alone an actual level editor... anyhow, here's a link to both versions:

Try this block-pushing game I made in flash

You should be aware that most people don't have Flash in their browser anymore, and basically nobody will have it in just a couple of years. I suggest remaking any Flash games in something that is widely supported, preferably HTML5.

I would be very surprised, given the past dominance of Flash, if nobody created a tool designed to run Flash specifically in environments that don't directly support it.

I learned flash+actionscript in a uni module back in 2013 and made that game around that time, even back then I was surprised they were teaching it.

I would like to recreate it in Java as a mobile app

Just wondering: anyone here tried out the game I mentioned in the first post?

I'd be very curious to hear what experienced CC players think of it in particular, and if it matches my view that it's just about the only puzzle game with fundamentally different gameplay from CC that has anywhere near the potential it did back in the day... or would if it had a level editor, that is.

Also, a different version of the game was later released. Gameplay is much worse, but it has great graphics and amazing music:
