App Review: Cassiopeia by Pocket Minutes
Cassiopeia by Pocket Minutes is a challenging puzzle game that contains elements of Sudoku and Minesweeper. There are 60 levels that get increasingly harder. You can, however, skip around and do the levels in any order you wish. You do not need to complete the easier ones to unlock the harder ones.
In each level you are given a square board with numbers in some of the squares. The numbers tell you how many stars there are in the 8 surrounding squares. In each level, you must figure out the correct placement of the 10 stars based on the clues that these numbers give you. To place or remove a star, tap on a square. To mark the square as not containing a star rub your finger on the square and it will be shaded. One very tricky thing to keep in mind is that a star may be placed in a square that is not surrounded by any numbers at all.
If you place all of the stars correctly, you will pass that level. If you place all ten stars and your solution is not correct, that game will tell you that you have at least one star out of place. Troubleshooting a problem like this can be problematic. The easiest solution may be to tap the reset button and start the level over.
For those who love a good thinking puzzle, this is a great app with a small price tag.
Cassiopeia is $0.99 in the iTunes App Store.
