Always trying to keep my mind fit by giving it challenges on a daily basis, I ran across a neat game app called Fish Crackers. This set of puzzles first caught my eye as it somewhat resembled a Chinese checkers board in one respect with simplicity, triangular points and circles. On first glance, I thought, "Hmmmm...what could be so difficult about crackers in such a familiar setting?" Once, I tried playing the game, I changed my mind quickly!

This colorful puzzle game with 400 puzzles along with 2D gameplay is pure addicting fun for the family. Plus, one thing I like is that when you play on one device, it syncs with iCloud to match your other devices when you set that option. Expect to enjoy great gameplay with colorful puzzle pieces in this universal iPhone puzzle game:

• 400 hand-crafted puzzles, more to come
• Realistic 2D gameplay - move, turn, and bump
• Designed for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
• Play in portrait and landscape views
• Scores: earn stars for each solved puzzle
• Can't solve puzzles? Use hints
• iCloud - automatic sync all your devices
• Guest players: get your friends to play
• Game Center achievements and leaderboards

For the younger ones in the family (or the lazier ones now reading!), take on puzzle fun with only 3 pieces. However, if you want to really turn your brain to mush, you can create puzzles using up to 9 pieces. The game's objective is to fit the pieces within the shape on the board, and you are able to accomplish this by moving, rotating and flipping them. It's simple to rotate pieces as all you have to do is press a corner. If you want to flip a piece, just tap twice. You can rearrange certain movement options in the Settings. To remove ads, you will need to purchase the 99 cent option.

A handy favorite of mine, of course, is the Hints (lightbulb icon) option. Another creative item is the "moving and bumping to get around" feature which makes the game more exciting. Naturally, you'll see the timer counting down as you progress throughout the game though you could turn this option off. So get cracking and move those little bits of fish around while you challenge your brain to unknown heights!
COOL CONCLUSION: Fish Crackers twists your brain around hundreds of colorful puzzles that look deceptively simple, but really require a fair amount of brain power to solve!
