Best Android and iPhone puzzle games of 2015


We're nearly halfway through 2015, and with so many great new puzzle games for Android, iOS and Windows Phone, it's sometimes hard to keep track. It's time to make some order in that list every gamer has in their head about those games that you still haven't played, but absolutely must not forget to check out.

In this selection, we look at the best iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone puzzle games of 2015 and 2015 only. This means two things: we will include only the very best games that you won't regret playing, and all of them will be released in 2015.

We take the genre puzzle in the vast definition of the world: including atmospheric, ambient puzzle experiences as well as more traditional top-down puzzles shining with either their charming complexity, story or immersive environment. And while The Room 3 - possibly the highest-profile puzzler of the year - has been delayed for later on this year, there's no shortage of great games to check out. Take a look at the best new Android and iPhone puzzle games of 2015 right below.
