Blackbox/ Think outside the box – Game Walkthrough (Levels 1-40)

      Blackbox is a creative and clever puzzle game where you must solve puzzles using your iPhone‘s hardware physics. There are no finger swipes. You only have to understand your hardware and use it to find the solutions through creative adjusting. Blackbox is a new kind of puzzle game that makes you think of creative new ways to solve puzzles without ever touching the screen.

      Blackbox is a puzzle game that is unlike anything you’ve ever played before. So you most likely have to take what you know about puzzle games so far and throw it out the window, because none of that will help you with this unique twist to the genre. Visually speaking, Blackbox is very simple and accurate. It goes well along with the clean and flat aesthetic of modern days iOS devices, and the fans of minimal design will fall in love immediately. Blackbox, as the name suggests, features a crisp, black background that fills the entire screen, accompanied with neon lines, shapes, and dots contrast nicely against the darkness. The animations are fluid and smooth, making an entertaining playing experience.
       Blackbox has over 50+ discrete puzzles for players to solve. They are not split up into various chapters like other games. Instead, they are color-coded, and you unlock more available puzzles as you pass the first ones. All the puzzles utilize some aspect of your iPhone’s hardware, so you’ll have to really understand how your device works in order to solve effectively the puzzles. The controls are special, because you will never use the screen to solve anything. You can tap on the screen to pause and return to the level select screen, or perform a 3D Touch on a compatible device to quickly go back home. But for actually solving the puzzles, you will have to figure out what the puzzle is asking you to do, and make use of your iPhone’s components to solve it. You’ll have to use the device’s gyroscope sensors as well as the accelerometer to get various colors and you’ll also may use the mirror to reverse what is on the screen, even you’ll may have to adjust your device’s brightness to complete certain levels.

      Be prepared as the game certainly has a new perspective on puzzles. Some of the puzzles can be rather extremely annoying at first, so you’ll may have to return at a later time to solve if you can’t figure it out immediately. The game also has some hints that you can use, though they should be kept as a last resort when you just can’t seem to figure out what to do. Blackbox is a challenging puzzle game that requires brainpower, time, patience, and perspective to solve.

     Here you’ll find the answers, hints, and necessary walkthrough advises to pass the levels of this game conveniently.
