While some might think that simple puzzles games are no longer in vogue, MigmO is here to prove otherwise. This iOS app mimics the classic puzzle game, adding a unique twist to it. You have to guide MigmO to the goal position.

A single celled creature begins his journey of life as MigmO. Your aim is to take it to the destination goal safely. During the course of the game, you will encounter ample action in the form of enemies and obstacles. Dodging them and getting past them is the real challenge.

When you begin with the game, you set out with 5 lives. Once you exhaust all of these, the game ends for you. You have to get them as close to the final goal as possible. You can go back to a level and view your score at all times. All in all, there are 20 unique levels to be explored and enjoyed. If you find the pace of the game too slow, you could even skip a certain level and move on to the next one. At the end of each level, there is a yellow door, which marks the destination goal.

There are 4 items to guide you and speed up your journey. They are: ladder, change of course, hammer and bridge. You have the freedom to use these at any time during the course of the game as and when you deem it worthy.

If you would like to contribute to the game, you can switch to the edit mode. In this mode, you can design maps and also share and play with your friends. The app has Facebook integration, allowing you to compete with your family and friends. As an incentive to do so, you receive 10 hearts for switching to this mode. These hearts or lives can be used during your game to make it last longer. Update your friends with the progress you make on a daily basis.

The user interface of the game is quite classic. It reminds you of games like Mario and Dave. It has been kept extremely simple yet profound. The number of challenges and the variety of them is what makes the game worth playing. Once you begin the puzzle game, it won’t be long before you will be addicted to it and unable to put it down. The fun gets more intense and challenging as you proceed through each level.

Although 20 levels might seem less, it turns out otherwise, thanks to the simplicity of the game. At present, it is available in both Japanese and English for free. It can be downloaded from the App store for the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone, requiring iOS 7.0 or later and 1.0 MB of memory space on your iOS device. It is a fun and addictive puzzle game that is sure to get your fancy and take you down memory lane. At the same time, the twists will keep you engaged and wanting for more levels at the end.

Good: Large number of twists and challenges

Bad: Gets repetitive
