Blackbox is one of iOS's #1 puzzle games but don't take my word for it—read from over 96,000 five-star reviews worldwide. Rather not? That's cool. Here are some nice things people have said about Blackbox:
Explore 74 unique puzzles (MORE COMING) without touch… Tilt, shout, click, snap, wait, reflect, and hike your way to success; expand your creative thinking; ponder colorful visual clues; discover secrets along the way…
With ample satisfying "ah hah!" moments and puzzles as artful and clever as they are challenging, Blackbox is as delightful to play as it is to look at and hold.
Frustrating, fun, and full of surprises… There’s more to Blackbox than meets the eye. Can you find all the meta challenges?
Every challenge has been tuned to be on the cusp of maddening but always solvable. Some challenges take time, perseverance, and perspective to understand, but if you’re really stumped rest assured there are hints. To enjoy the game to it’s fullest, only use them as a last resort!
Blackbox is jam-packed with over 50 free challenges. Get far enough and you'll get the option to pay to unlock more advanced challenges and support the game's future development (and keep it ad free)!
Good luck, ~Ryan

What We In The Industry Call “Hot Fixes”™ –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– • Missing some seasonal alternate icons? Check again. • Icon picker looking wider than it is all? Not anymore. • Icon picker’s dynamic type support have you down biggly? Tada. • Product icons sometimes missing? Be gone ghost! • Wormhole menu confused by your quick gestures and gentle but strong force touch? No mas!
==================== Every two weeks Ryan regrets not releasing an update with bug fixes and performance enhancements. This is not one of those weeks. Crafted with love in San Luis Obispo, California …jk it’s mostly crafted with cursing.
What’s new? –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– • NEW CHALLENGE Requires iOS 10+
• Icon Picker Blackbox is already a game of achievements but here are some more I guess.
• New Modal Card Style Very readable type, so hot right now.
• New Security Mechanism Oh how deliciously vague. (*iOS developers hate him!*)
• Merch Options Share Links: You can now share links to the merch you’ve unlocked (This makes birthday wishlists super easy for mom and dad). Cryptocurrencies: you can now buy official Blackbox merch with BTC, LTC, or ETH (sorry no Garlicoin for now). The Blackbox Stealth Shirt goes great with both lambos and yachts.
Okay but for real, did you fix anything? –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– • Huge performance improvement for all 3 QR camera-based challenges (like 50% the CPU usage huge). Thanks @flexmonkey! • Fixed positioning of the visual for a certain orange thing in an early challenge. • Fixed true-black for iPhone X • Replaced a visual stopgap for hint card strikeout’s on iOS 9 • Re-cast all hint credit coins to fix an off-center squircle hole • Fixed ordering of Quick Actions (3D Touch menu) • Fixed a situation where two merch product views could be presented • Removed some garbage lucky charms text from the share extension names • Improved some hints based on your feedback • Fixed a situation where cancelled purchases could potentially freeze the app • Challenge sound effects should fade more gracefully when entering/leaving challenges • Safer audio engine management (here batter, batter…) • Fixed visual jank with modal cards’ “share” and “restore purchases” buttons • Added a card when merch riddles are entered a second time
