0h h1 is an awesome free puzzle game for your Windows and Windows Phone devices

If you enjoyed puzzle games like 2048 or Threes, you might like this new game called, 0h h1. It's a little logic game that requires you to follow three simple rules. It is free without ads, in-app purchases, social network requirements, or other nag screens. We've installed it on our Lumia 930 and Surface Pro 3. Take a look at the gameplay video.

0h h1 is really simple. Follow these three rules:

  1. You can't have three tiles of the same color next to each other.
  2. A full row or column must have as many blue tiles as red ones.
  3. No two rows or two columns can be the same.

Simply tap a tile to change its color to blue or red. From there, just complete the grid while following the three rules above. There are 4 different sizes for the grid:

  • 4 x 4
  • 6 x 6
  • 8 x 8
  • 10 x 10

We don't have a hard time solving a 4 x 4 grid, but completing a 6 x 6 is a bit more challenging. When you fill up the grid, 0h h1 either congratulates you or lets you know if you've broken any of the rules. Need a reminder? You can tap the question mark below the grid at any time.

The undo button, exit, and tips are also placed below the grid. Tips are really helpful when you're stuck and don't know what to do.

Grids start out with random tiles. Knowing the rules greatly help you out with the planning. For example, if there's a row of 4 tiles with already 2 red tiles, then you already know the remaining blank tiles need to be blue.

If you've got time to kill, definitely check out 0h h1. It's free and you can download it on your Windows and Windows Phone devices. You can also play the game on iOS, Android, and even your web browser (ohh1.com)

  • So it's a bit like sudoku in a way, (the 'no two collumns/rows can be the same' thing)
  • it's binary sudoku (it does exists sudoku in many bases and in repeating patterns)

  • The windows phone store is full of puzzle games, or say only puzzle game. Sick of it.

  • I agree. Puzzles and endless runners. No ingenuity at all. Too many of these games.
  • Yeah, and the iOS and Android stores are full of mostly fart and flashlight apps.  Your point?  I'd rather have puzzles to exercise my brain than stupid apps like that.
