A Room with Askew
This isn’t a new game, but it IS a recommendation if you’ve got a tablet and you’re looking for something to occupy those fingers: The Room series. No, it’s not a tablet version of the notoriously bad 2003 movie of the same name. It’s a series of three beautifully made, gently cerebral, often creepy puzzle games. The gameplay is simple: you’re presented with an ornate box full of switches, cogs and levers, and you have to open it, step by step. But that description defies the intricate complexity of each puzzle box, half mechanical and half magical—and the sense of achievement as you peel away another layer of brass and mahogany. The first two games were pretty great, but this third iteration nails the eerie atmosphere and delicate, convoluted multi-step constructions. You should get them all.
$15 for The Room and The Room Two, $38 for The Room Three from Google Play and App Store.
