Oquonie ($2.99)

What’s it about? Puzzler Oquonie takes players through a strange world based on the illustrations of artist Rekka Bellum, where your job is to navigate a strange, sprawling structure.

What’s cool? You’re lost in something of a labyrinth in Oquonie, with not much in the way of clues to guide you. In control of a strange creature, you’ll find you can enter certain areas as you explore the twisting maze – that is, until you find other creatures, speak with them, and collect three matching symbols from them. Once you have three of a kind, you’ll transform into a new kind of creature, which opens new areas for you to advance. Strange clues and riddles are also available along the way that give you an idea of how to navigate the maze, but without dialog, you’ll have to interpret them yourself.
