Bedeviled 1: The Most Diabolical Sliding Puzzle Ever
When Darrel reached out to us to check out his game, we were skeptical about how good it could be considering the bravado shown in the title alone. “Most Diabolical Sliding Puzzle Ever”?! Really? What shameless hubris! Such undeniable self-promotion not only for the game, but also for the creators! This is the kind of language and attitude that people have when they are hiding a shortcoming or are just plain insecure. Yet, when we started playing Bedeviled 1: The Most Diabolical Sliding Puzzle Ever, we slowly noticed how obsessed we became with solving each puzzle. The simple objective layered with various elements from different childhood games, such as n-puzzle (aka ’15 puzzle’), jigsaw puzzle, memory match, and rolling ball, grabs hold of you and just never lets go. Basically, it’s like the game is toying with you rather than you toying with it. It is most diabolical indeed. Maybe the game is as advertised. Or maybe it’s the advertising that makes the game. Or maybe Darrel is just Satan incarnate. Whatever the case, all aboard! This just might be the only ticket to Hell worth purchasing. Price: 99¢.
