Rich Diamond is a new puzzle/strategy game from Core Games (www.coregames.com). The user takes on the role of treasure hunter Rich and you interact with boulders, arrows, boxes, monsters, lava and more! The goal for each level is to collect all of the available gems, then escape out the exit alive.
Rich Diamond is designed so that the puzzles are more 'finesse', rather than 'brute-force'. The design goal for this game is to solve puzzles using your brain, rather than by random guessing, or mindless repetition. The iPhone game is based upon the PC game of the same name. There are currently 320 levels in the full version of the game and 30 levels in the Lite version. Core Games also has an online forum community that allows users to compare high scores, ask for help and even design and share their own levels.
If you like puzzle games and want an iPhone app that provides lots of replay value for under $1 (on sale for $0.99 right now) then check this one out. Check out our website and let us know what you think too. Happy treasure hunting!
