By Ryan McLeod

Blackbox is one of iOS's #1 puzzle games but don't take my word for it when you can read from over 80,000 five-star reviews worldwide. Rather read this? I get it. Here are some nice things people have said about Blackbox:

-==============================-


BEAUTIFULLY CLEVER

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.

SATISFYINGLY SURPRISING

Frustrating, fun, and full of surprises… There’s more to Blackbox than meets the eye. Can you find all the meta challenges?

HINTS

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!

LEVEL PACKS

Blackbox is jam-packed with 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,

Release Notes

13/07/2017 | Version : 1.3.15 | Size : 94.0 MB
New Meta Challenge!
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Available to those who have proven themselves worthy with due time…

General Fixes
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
▶ Rock out: Fixed a certain strung out challenge. Turns out all it needed was a loving touch and an excessive amount of math.
▶ Stay still: Grid no longer snaps back to center after idling
▶ Tick-tock shock: Fixed a longstanding, rare issue that affected players using 12 hour clocks in regions that usually use 24 hour clocks. Seriously.

Accessibility
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
▶ More logical home grid swipe navigation. Swiping now moves through challenge types in a row-style, top-to-bottom manner that reflects the challenges’s spacial layout.
▶ Voice Over now keeps focus of the last selected grid item upon returning to home grid
▶ Voice Over now correctly announces the latest number of available hint credits
▶ Reduced Transparency and Increased Contrast modes now enhance several challenges

(Thank you everyone who took the time to report on these issues!)

(iPad/iPod players please refrain from installing this update! Fix coming soon.)

So you think Blackbox is hard eh? Have you ever tried playing with your eyes closed?

This update brings sonic interfaces to Blackbox. An entirely new dimension of clues and dynamic feedback that infuse new life into all 71 challenges. But this is about more than replacing the previous few sounds that I made with my mouth and laptop. Adding these new sonic interfaces, paired with careful haptic feedback, and countless accessibility enhancements means Blackbox is now accessible to almost everyone regardless of their needs. Did I mention the sounds are also just wicked cool?

So what’s a sonic interface? Well for the last year nearly 3.5 million people have played Blackbox solely using their eyes. For the over 258 million people worldwide with visual impairments, including blindness, the game was more or less a literal Blackbox. The sonic interfaces paired with Voice Over and haptic feedback create an entirely alternative interface for Blackbox that doesn’t require vision at all. So now, whether you use dynamic type sizing to read small text, text-to-speech to to hear content, or are fully blind you can enjoy the same loving suffering that is Blackbox.

If you have ideas for how to improve the current accessibility features please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly at a11y@growpixel.com. Thank you!

For those of you looking for a new puzzle or two, THANK YOU for being patient with me and please hang in there. Until then, keep thinking outside the box, and talk to you soon!

P.S. Since this version of Blackbox is a re-release for the accessibility community, the current icon is a throwback to the very first “Blackbox Red” app icon :)

It's boggling and clever. I'd just say don't use the hints. Makes you feel extra specially clever

It is unusual and interesting. I guess it's a novel way to explore the iPhone.
