REBUS – Absurd Logic Game is an outstanding new puzzle game for iPhone and iPad that will challenge every ounce of logic you possess.
Developed by Jutiful, this intriguing new game is a must have for anyone who wants to practice thinking outside the box.
Concept and Gameplay:
To quote Wikipedia, a rebus is “an allusional device that uses pictures to represent words or parts of words.” For example, one of the first puzzles you’ll solve in REBUS is a G with a heart next to it.
While this might look strange at first, sounding out what you see on the screen means you’ll eventually realize that the solution to the puzzle is glove. Trust me, the first puzzle is easy compared to the rest.
One of the things I was pleased to see in REBUS is a handy tutorial that encourages players to think outside the box, primarily because this is a puzzle game that they’ve likely never played before.
I can honestly say that REBUS requires quite a bit of creativity and logic in order to solve puzzles, but that’s what makes it so fun to play.
REBUS offers quite a bit for players, including over 100 puzzles to solve. According to the developer, updates will be released regularly and new puzzles will be added to the game frequently.
Not only does this mean the game will continue to grow with frequent attention, but it also means the players who have solved all of the puzzles can continue to play and enjoy REBUS.
As with many puzzle games, REBUS includes a few features to help players catch a break if they happen to get stuck on a puzzle. For example, there are hints that can be purchased with coins earned from successfully solving rebuses.
Hints include revealing the answer, eliminating letters from the built-in keyboard, and revealing the number of letters in the word. Hints aside, we encourage you to stay with each puzzle in this game of associations, logic and design. Solving them for yourself will bring satisfaction and energize your brain.
iPhone gamers who enjoy collecting achievements and showing off progress to friends via Game Center will be pleased to know that REBUS also features integration, as well as 23 achievements to collect.
REBUS is available to download from the App Store for free, which is a fantastic price given the fact that there are a ton of puzzles to solve. Players can optionally purchase more coins via the in-game store, as well as disable ads.
Overall, you definitely can’t beat the price of free when it comes to a fun and challenging puzzle game. REBUS definitely delivers on its promise to push players to think outside the box.
So be prepared to really put your mind to the test if you decide to give this fantastic new game a try.
REBUS – Absurd Logic Game requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this article.
