Challenging Puzzler Orbox C for Android and WP 7

There seems to be an inexhaustible number of simple games in the Google Play Store and the Windows Phone App Store. Thankfully, there are just as many coffee breaks during which these games can be played. As both Android and Windows Phone have grown, so has the quality of the simple games released. There is a new puzzler for both platforms called Orbox C.

XDA Forum Member progamix, who also created the prior iterations of Orbox. Like its predecessors, the app requires users to move the “Orbox” around a level and complete objectives. The controls are quite simple. The Orbox can only move in a single direction until it reaches something that will stop it. Using the level design, players have to move the Orbox around without flinging it off the screen. Here are some more details for the Play Store description:

The game has variety of missions. Find exit, blow all the bombs, activate sensors, collect stars, break ice, and any mix between of these.
It is a fun coffee break game, you will not have to over-think yourselves, the various missions and the different objectives are what will make you keep playing.

So if you’re a little burned out slicing fruit or flinging ill mannered Neornithes around, then this is definitely a game to pick up. For download links and a trailer video, check out the original thread.
