Other Games (Puzzles and Toys)

Puzzle games have a simple goal, which is “solve the puzzle.” Gamers may have to unscramble a picture, keep dropping blocks until time runs out, complete a level, or maneuver pieces until they are placed into their correct location.

Toy games let the gamer construct objects such as building a virtual robot that you can command or building a remote control car to drive or an airplane to fly. Other toy games can be like a Rube Goldberg contraption where you construct an activity structure that uses an energy to start the flow and ends with a static state. Think of an enormous layout of dominoes standing upright. When the gamer knocks over the first domino, they all fall down in sequence until the entire array of blocks are laying static.

Gamers enjoy puzzle and toy games. Historically they are difficult to market since they are usually unique and publishers aren’t used to pitching them correctly.
