    Compact Puzzles is a set of 12 puzzles from the Compact Fun range. Brief details of each puzzle are given below.

    Please note that the individual puzzles are also available as individual apps: free ad-supported apps, and, in some cases, paid-for ad-free apps. So, you can try them first.

    Original puzzles

    An original numerical puzzle in which 6 equations of the form A ? B ? C = D (where A to D are numbers and ? are operators) are laid out in a grid, three horizontally and three vertically, with the results shown but the 9 numbers representing A, B and C in the equations given but not positioned. The objective is to position these, together with the operators, to produce 6 correct equations.

    An original puzzle based on a collapsing blocks game. Click on a block to remove all connected blocks of the same colour, and try to achieve just three blocks of different colours in the middle at the end.

    Word puzzles

    A sophisticated version of the hangman puzzle normally played with pencil and paper, where one player tries to guess the letters of a hidden word. The word can be computer-selected or defined by another person.
