Montezuma Puzzle by Eco Pawel Jarosz is a slower paced, relaxing puzzle game. The game uses logic in its methods, which makes it somewhat of a thinking game. The scenery is very cool, showing an ancient Aztec empire, with a glowing background. It’s very mesmerizing! Another relaxing thing about Montezuma Puzzle is that you get unlimited hints! You don’t have to use them if you like to take your time and figure it out on your own. But, if you’re like me and have tried and tried and still can’t get past one puzzle, you’ll appreciate the fact that you can have as many hints as you need!
Montezuma Puzzle offers 100 levels (which don’t have to be played in order), each having a completely different puzzle for you to arrange. You’re given an oddly shaped grid and numerous pieces you must fit into the grid. The pieces remind me of Tetris, shaped and colored just like ones you see when playing Tetris. Unlike Tetris, you can’t rotate them at all, which makes it quite a challenge! As you get to the higher levels, they get much more challenging using bigger grids and more pieces; don’t be afraid to use your hints if you get stumped!
Montezuma Puzzle’s ads get a little out of control. They pop up constantly, covering your entire screen, which is always annoying, and there isn’t an in-app purchase you can use to get rid of them. That is the one and only bad thing I have to say about this game. And even with the annoying ads, I would definitely recommend Montezuma Puzzle to anyone who loves puzzle games and needs to relax! Montezuma Puzzle is your ticket! It works for me!
