The Witness is a puzzle game unlike anything else. It's open world, and refuses wholeheartedly to so much as touch your hand, let alone hold it.

The game has been out on a variety of other platforms for a while now, and now it's finally made its way to the App Store. But has it been worth the wait?

The game starts off with you alone in a tunnel. You walk down it, tapping the floor to move. There are a few simple sliding puzzles to solve to open the doors, and then you step out onto a beautiful island.

There are a couple more puzzles to solve to open a gate, and at that point the game leaves you to your own devices. You're not funnelled anywhere from then on. Explore at your leisure, poke and prod the devices you find and try to figure out what's going on.
