Logyx Pack is a tiny free program which enables you to play 100+ logic/ board games - Minesweeper, Tetris, Battleships, Reversi, Checkers, Simon Says, more - from the same interface.

Unsurprisingly, the individual games are very basic. There's little help. No choice of difficulty level. Minimal sound. No choice of opponent (some games require one human player, some two, and that can't be changed). No significant board customisations, high scores or anything else.

The interface isn't great, either. We would have liked the games to be organised by clear themes, with board thumbnails to help you recognise or choose anything of interest, and a "Recently played" list to hold your favourites. What you get instead is a set of text menus organising the games in alphabetical order, which you must browse each time.

Despite this, Logyx Pack is still a likeable package. There are lots of games here, the quality of some computer opponents is better than we expected, and overall it's a fun way to pass some time.

The full game list is Puzz, Yap Yamb (Net+), Yea Chess, Lineo, PipeDrop, Harpy, Zookey, Bapp, Foldex, Hopper, Zoodoku, Yomboku, Mem Pro, Memory, Spiny Goo, Mips, Moc, Inrot, Zyx, Qwez, Zbam, Thux, Rotiz, Woosho, Newpy, Cossai, Crunch, Sanno, Yam Yam, Chakz, Chealla, Chagwa, Choy, N-Queens, N-Rooks, FourMax, PipeSpin, Tac 3D, Symh, Pymh, Minesweeper, Battleships, Dominow, Geex, Micro Mastermind, Micro Yomb, Baca, Tetris, Hextris, Tetrapod, Tangram, Infe, Nam Chess, Checkers, King's Board, Quirkat, Chicoy, Foado, Tibu, Heho, Three Men's Morris, Tackle, Kono, PushNPull Sokoban, Magnetron, Atomic, ArrowPath, CarPath, HexaPath, SquarePath, JumpPath, Connect Four, GoMoku, Ha, Icky, Reversi, Shaga, Jumper, Pegs, RotSix, BallRings, Billiard Balls, Four Circles, Hanoi, Nim, Chomp, SideSwap, SwapJump 1D, Threener, GrowaHex, GrowaSquare, ColorPos, Maze, Wompo, Womto, Inertia, Light Up, Shapo, SlideAll, Klotski, Blobski, Sudoku, Kakuro, DigiShift, Byss 2048, Senet, TogLine, PlusMinus, Varikon, Simon Says.

Verdict

It's short on features and the interface is very basic, but Logyx Pack does have a lot of very playable games, and on balance it's a fun way to pass an hour or two.
