Release Notes

SURPRISE! I'm back just in time for Spring.
▶ Call all your friends because it's time to solve a NEW CHALLENGE.

I'm not in a rush, what else is different?
▶ I scattered some new useful hints and sardonicisms throughout the game.
▶ Fixed: People were being thanked for clothing me that actually hadn't. Huge thank you to everyone who bought a shirt!! I hope you enjoyed my little secret inside… ;)
▶ Fixed: referred friends but didn't get the hint credits? I've now fixed this little bug named Dennis. You'll be back-credited for them shortly :)
▶ Fixed: some crashes happening on iOS 8 (Future updates will require iOS 9!).
▶ Fixed a bug that made it impossible to leave the first challenge. ,:D
▶ Fixed: opening the "wormhole" to leave challenges by swiping a bit easier.

P.S. Stay in school Kevin. I don't like getting emails from teachers saying my game is a distraction. Be sneakier next time!
P.P.S. Are we instagram buddies yet? There are lots of goodies hidden there… @blackboxpuzzles

Miss me? There’s so much good stuff coming to Blackbox this year. This is just the beginning…

– I wonder if there will be more like it…

– Buy or win some hints and you’ll find a snazzy new animation to match. Making it rain hint credits will never be the same.

– The snowflake has melted back to it’s original form
– Store accessibility has been improved
– Localized cent/pence pricing
– New card styles and bonus hint counters
– Rearranged some meta challenges
– Tweaked text in a Push Pack challenge for devices with 3D Touch
– Sarcasm turned up

– Deferred purchases can now be cancelled
– Button text is visible on 32 bit devices again

– This may be one of the last versions of Blackbox to support iOS 8! Please consider updating if you can.

Weirdness abounds. My 12 year old and I both have this app and have had some great moments overcoming these unique tasks. Play/discover this quirky app before the rest of the World discovers it. Would be ideal for family holidays. 10/10.

Was looking for a puzzle game to keep me entertained whilst trying to sleep, and found the most addictive puzzle game in a long time. Deserves the time to write a review, normally wouldn't bother.

this game is genuinely so clever and the creator is a genius! so addictive, fun and smart and really makes you think in a way you wouldn't expect, so unique and not predictable therefore not boring in the slightest! please bring out more levels, by far the best game on the appstore without a doubt.
