Here are some excellent puzzle game options to consider playing besides Creaks, including Wordle:
- Wordle – The immensely popular word guessing game that challenges you to figure out a 5 letter word in 6 tries each day. Fun and addictive.
- Nonograms/Picross – Logic puzzles where you determine which squares to color in based on number clues to reveal hidden pixel art. Challenging but very satisfying to solve.
- Minesweeper – A classic logic-based puzzle game where you clear tiles without detonating hidden mines using clues about numbers of adjacent mines. Timeless and tense.
- The Witness – Beautiful puzzle game where you manipulate the environment and discover unique puzzle mechanics on an uninhabited island. Deeply satisfying.
- Baba Is You – Push-the-blocks style puzzles but the blocks change the very rules of the game itself. Incredibly creative logic challenges.
- Tangle Tower – A point-and-click mystery game with clever lateral thinking puzzles to uncover clues. Great stories too.
- The Room series – Immersive 3D escape room style puzzles using intuition and observation to solve mysteries. Atmospheric.
- Limbo – Moody puzzle-platformer where you navigate hazards in a stark black & white world. Unsettling and brilliant.
Any of these would provide challenging brain exercises while also offering great stories, gameplay or relaxation. Can’t go wrong with any of the options.
