Zentomino for iPhone - App Review

Zentomino for iPhone is an easy to play puzzle game and a great time killer. While the game may have a simple concept, some of the puzzles are not as simple to solve. To complete a puzzle, you'll take Tetris-like pieces and fit them inside the puzzle designs without overlapping or going outside the boundaries. Drag pieces out of their places or back in, tap them while on the board to rotate them. Sometimes you'll use all the pieces allotted to you, sometimes you won't.

When you first start the game, you'll be presented with pages and pages of puzzles to take a stab at. What I really like about this game is that you aren't forced to complete the puzzles in any specific order. You can flick through the pages and choose which ones you want to solve. Once you complete one, it will show the colored completed version as you scroll through. Get stuck on a certain puzzle? Click one button to take you back to the puzzle selection screen and take a stab at another one. You can always go back later and each puzzle should be as you left it.

Zentomino also links into Game Center. You'll get achievements based on completing a particularly complex puzzle, which will then show up in your achievements. You can see your achievements within Game Center, or clicking a link on the Zentomino main screen will link into Game Center to show you them.

So if you're looking for a good strategy or puzzle game, check out Zentomino and let us know what you think! They've also got a Lite version if you'd rather try before buying.

Pros

  • Controls are easy to understand and fluid
  • Lots of puzzle choices
  • Game Center Integration

Cons

  • Controls during game play to go back to main menu and reset pieces are a little small, making them bigger would make them easier to click on

The game is quite difficult. I prefer their TanZen HD in the master mode.
