FavouriteSimon Tatham’s Puzzles is a motley collection of puzzle games. Quite a few of them are classic puzzles with Master Mind, Sudoku, and Minesweeper included. But there are lots you’ll probably never have played before.

The portability of the games are one of their chief virtues. You can be just about anywhere, on any combination of hardware and operating system, and indulge in a few minutes of puzzling. That’s the lead developer’s intention. These games aren’t intended to hog the whole afternoon. Instead, they are great to dip into when you need a brief diversion from whatever you are meant to be doing.

There’s a real dearth of high quality open source software available for Android. That’s a real shame! Fortunately every game in this Puzzle Collection is published under an open source license.
