Blackbox is an out of the box puzzle game that you don't actually touch. Instead you have to tap, tilt, yell, and do many more movements to get through each level of this insane puzzle.
Blackbox is really an original game that will take you a while to learn and really master. The puzzles are challenging to the point of frustration, and are really creative. The game always works as well, with very few bugs or other issues. The game is lightweight, though it does put a little stress on your battery.
The game can be really frustrating at times, and it does get tricky. The hints are also a little more on the expensive side and aren't always as helpful as they could be.

So you think you understand this thing you’re holding? Think again. Stop tapping. Stop swiping. In fact, stop touching the screen at all. To crack Blackbox’s puzzles you’ll need to find solitude and stillness, climb mountains, call on friends, get in tune with the cosmos, and think outside the box.
Minimalistic visual clues make for incredibly satisfying “Aha!” moments, while sonic interfaces provide an extra level of guidance and nuance that makes Blackbox accessible with or without vision. Thoughtful haptic feedback, Easter eggs on Easter eggs, and solutions that can’t be found beneath the glass of your screen redefine what a puzzle can be. You’ll never see your device the same way again.
Think you’re clever? Prove it.
