This is a sequential movement puzzle, but with a clever twist.
The playing area is a 5x5 grid, populated with some dots. Resting with their ends on some dots, are some pieces, whose length can be 1 or 2 units.
One of the pieces is red. The goal is to move it over the red dots.
Rush Hour, which is possibly the most plagiarized puzzle of all time.
In Spin Mix, instead, the pieces rotate around one of their ends. You can only rotate them at 90 degrees angles, they cannot intersect each other, and the ends must always rest on the dots. This produces some interesting mechanics.
The game contains 274 puzzles, sorted by the optimal number of moves needed to solve them, which roughly maps to the difficulty. Puzzle 1 requires 11 moves, puzzle 274 requires 79 moves.
I don't really like the options menu, which is a bit confusing and offers too many irrelevant options. Also, the game supports Game Center leaderboards, but you have to manually post your score by tapping on the button labelled "G.C.", so hardly anyone will do that.
Still, it's free, so it's worth a try.
