Blackbox is a super fun (and sometimes frustrating) puzzler. What makes it really unique is that you solve the puzzles without touching the screen. Ryan (@warpling) did an awesome job taking advantage of the sensors on the iPhone. There's more deets in the Medium Media Kit Ryan put together here - https://medium.com/@warpling/bla... I have a good feeling that this will get featured by Apple and be a hit on the App Store! Check it out!

Thank you @robjama! AHH—what an exciting day!!! ⬛️😄 This is a game I have wanted to be able to play FOREVER. I'm so excited to be able to finally share it with all of you :) Blackbox is a puzzle game made to push your creative, outside-the-box thinking… Unlike normal puzzle games, the challenges in Blackbox can't be beat by any sort of swiping or tapping—in fact they almost never involve touch… I don't want to say too much and potentially spoil the game by robbing you of "ah hah" moments, so I hope that's enough to intrigue you to give it a try! I'd love to hear what you all think, if you have challenge ideas, and if there are any questions I can answer!

@robjama This game is great! The puzzles use the phone in all sorts of clever ways. I'll echo the sometimes frustrating part and I think that's what makes it a great puzzle game. "Refreshingly oppressive" really is a great tag line. Great job @warpling!

@thenameislong @robjama It's been tough to balance the frustration and satisfaction but I think it's at a pretty good place? Let me know if not!

This game is amazing! I'm surprised by how addicting it. I hope Apple recognizes Blackbox for how unique it is compared to other puzzle games. My friends and I are challenging each other to see who can complete the game quicker. I love how the puzzles are minimal and actually make you think. Keep up the great work, and can't wait to beat the game.

@chrisjano That's awesome Chris!! Did you see that if you invite them with your share link you'll get hints each time someone new installs? :D Hope I can get out more challenges before you beat it! ;)
So creative! Best iPhone tutorial ever.
