Orbox C is a great puzzle game with simple and addicting concept.
It is the third of the orbox sliding-block puzzle games. Like it’s ancestors this game requires you to navigate the orbox through each puzzle. When you push orbox to any of 4 directions (left,right,up,down) it will keep move until it hits the wall. So you have to think your way to complete the missions.
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.
The levels are well designed and it brings good mind satisfaction when solving them. Such a mental reward.
Orbox C has somewhat a sci-fi style powered by catchy electronic music. Shiny animations please the eye.
Game has plenty of levels, over 100. Later on it will become pretty challenging and will require a logic thinking instead of trial-an-error.
Orbox C is a great choice for puzzle/logic games lovers. It trains analytical ability, logical reasoning, and short-term memory.

Yes, "Quell" is same kind.
But we have some differences that makes "Orbox C" stand enough apart from Quell series.
Also I can ensure you that author(Arseniy Shkljaev) come up with idea by himself very long ago(somewhere in 96-97).
Orbox probably made this type of game popular in 2005(tho russian version released in 2004). It was flash game and it was a hit back then. After that there appeared lot of games of this kind.

I played and finished the trial and I must say it's fun. However, on my Nexus S running jellybean, the more you move, the slower the game gets. I believe it's because of how the blue path is programmed/drawn, the longer it gets, the slower the game becomes.

I already played games like that back then, just don't remember the name.
Probably it was that then? x)

Thanks people!

Next update will add around 40-50 levels so it will be 85-95 levels total. Split levels to a packs - Easy, Average, Normal, Hard
Then with one more update all 120 levels will be available in paid version. 30 levels in each difficulty.
In the trial/free version we plan to allow play 20 levels from Easy, 15 levels from Average and 10 Levels from Normal difficulty.

Thanks for the feedback! We will fix that!

Hard to say.
