MEJJI Puzzle Arrives on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
January 7, 2012 in Games
[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - MEJJI, invented by Segun O. Adu, became popular on the London tubes in 2011 and has featured in the magazine, London Puzzle Companion, distributed by the London Evening Standard (the most circulated evening paper in the UK). It is a coffee-time, as well as travel-time game to help pass the time when needed and with four different levels and game styles there is a game to fit every free-time.
MEJJI was the first logic puzzle to come in a picture frame. As with some of his art work, the inventor felt that for the puzzle to be truly ready, it needed frames around it. Aesthetics played a very important role in the creation of the puzzle, with the provision of different game styles and setups. Segun, a solution architect for Enterprise Resource Planning Systems, famously mentioned in his book, MEJJI, that - 'the process of creating the puzzle was in itself like solving a puzzle - "The puzzle of creating the puzzle".'
The typical MEJJI puzzle is an 8x8 grid. However, there are 6x6 and 10x10 grid sizes to appeal to different solvers. MEJJI was originally made available in paper format and pdf downloads were provided on the website for printing. Later, a Flash app was developed to allow users to try it online. The arrival of the iPhone version is a great moment for us at Virtuoso Works, as we finally can get the world to experience on mobile devices, what we believe is one of the most important logic puzzles of the moment.
Dr. David Levy, mathematician and Scottish International Chess Master, who has been very involved in puzzle works around the world, was one of the very first people to see the finished puzzle in 2009. He liked it and further described it as, "a very interesting new way to utilise symbols".
