Release Notes

4/1/2017 | Version : 1.3.9 | Size : 73.2 MB
SURPRISE! I'm back just in time for Spring.
▶ Call all your friends because it's time to solve a NEW CHALLENGE.

I'm not in a rush, what else is different?
▶ I scattered some new useful hints and sardonicisms throughout the game.
▶ Fixed: People were being thanked for clothing me that actually hadn't. Huge thank you to everyone who bought a shirt!! I hope you enjoyed my little secret inside… ;)
▶ Fixed: referred friends but didn't get the hint credits? I've now fixed this little bug named Dennis. You'll be back-credited for them shortly :)
▶ Fixed: some crashes happening on iOS 8 (Future updates will require iOS 9!).
▶ Fixed a bug that made it impossible to leave the first challenge. ,:D
▶ Fixed: opening the "wormhole" to leave challenges by swiping a bit easier.

P.S. Stay in school Kevin. I don't like getting emails from teachers saying my game is a distraction. Be sneakier next time!
P.P.S. Are we instagram buddies yet? There are lots of goodies hidden there… @blackboxpuzzles

Miss me? There’s so much good stuff coming to Blackbox this year. This is just the beginning…

– I wonder if there will be more like it…

– Buy or win some hints and you’ll find a snazzy new animation to match. Making it rain hint credits will never be the same.

– The snowflake has melted back to it’s original form
– Store accessibility has been improved
– Localized cent/pence pricing
– New card styles and bonus hint counters
– Rearranged some meta challenges
– Tweaked text in a Push Pack challenge for devices with 3D Touch
– Sarcasm turned up

– Deferred purchases can now be cancelled
– Button text is visible on 32 bit devices again

– This may be one of the last versions of Blackbox to support iOS 8! Please consider updating if you can.

I love this app. Good job on the subtle hints, too bad you need to pay for the extra packs

Passed on from my son (1.3.7)
1/3/2017 7:13:00 AM 4/5 By Maryellen3477
My son downloaded blackbox for me (I'd never heard of it) then showed me how to get started, some pretty simple some not so much. I'm not an intellectual giant but some of these are just too much. I read one review about the distance boxes and I agree entirely, you can't travel far enough it seems and it won't let you continue it makes you start over each time, hence never getting any further. Then there are some that my son gets easily and I doing the same thing, cannot achieve the goal. Basically it's a fun game for thinkers and I am a thinker! Oh and he also has access to lights that I cannot get to, and yes were equal in the amount of boxes already lit up.

10/10 would download again. (1.3.7)

I love how it's challenging it gets your mind thinking. One little flaw is to be more clear with the hints but it's all apart of the challenge you can say 😅💓
