Re-introducing Higglets

Higglets is a simple to pick up but incredibly difficult to master puzzle game. Treat the infected Higglets but by doing so, you’ll treat the Higglets to the left, right, above and below. If they’re healthy, you’ll actually make them ill! Cure all the Higglets to win.

Current Games / Modes

FreeCell Solitaire

Everybody’s favourite 1 player card game. Move all of the cards to the top right, starting with Aces up to Kings each of the same colour but to do so, you have to untangle the board one by one.

In the main area, move cards one by one into alternating colours, in order from highest numbers/values at the top, to lowest numbers at the bottom. When you’re stuck, move card(s) to the Free Cell areas at the top left to make some space.

Great fun, unlimited games and various settings to improve your play. Never interupted by adverts and your game will be saved even when you leave the app.

I wanted to build this, for ages. I finally got around to it and now it’s yours for £1.99 (alongside all of the other games here). A mobile / tablet version of the classic game, Minesweeper. Minimal graphics, clean and fresh.

You can change the board sizes from 6×6 up to 12×30 (depending on your device), various difficulty settings and toggles.

Click on a square to “clear” it but if it’s a mine, BOOM. Game over. If not, a number will be shown, representing how many mines are to the sides, above, below or in the corner squares adjacent. Use this number to carefully plan your progress and clear the whole board.

Great to play with a partner when travelling. I play this with my wife regularly. 1 or 2 player modes of the strategic board game, Reversi (Othello). Turn the opponents pieces to your colour by placing yours either side and finish the game with more of your pieces to win.

Against the computer, Easy and Medium difficulties start off friendly but Hard can be fiendish. (I will work on a “very hard” mode if enough people request it!)

Saved games, statistics for 1p matches and a minimal, clean interface.

Connect 4

Great kids game. Connect 4 of your coloured pieces to win. 1 player (vs a computer) or 2 player modes (on the same device) available. Totally safe and offline, so great to leave the children with on a long journey.

Place your coloured pieces on the board, from the bottom row up. 4 in a row, column or diagonal and you’ve won. Play vs the computer for an added challenge.

The classic number puzzle, Sudoku. Fill in a 9×9 grid of numbers, so that each row, column and each 3×3 grid has the numbers 1-9 in with no duplicates.

For addiotional challenge, one that warps your brain, swap the number for emoji. Same game but requires a different logic approach.

With 3 difficulty settings, timers, statistics and unlimited games, this Sudoku game will provide endless gameplay!

Emoji Mastermind

Based on the classic game, Mastermind, where players had to guess a combination of colours, I present you with Emoji Mastermind. Guess the combination of emoji to solve the game, each guess we will tell you how many are correct and how many are in the correct place but not which ones are which!

Note Also… emojii are not only more fun but are more accessible than colours.

Submit as many words as you can from the 9 letters on the screen but make sure you include the middle letter! Any 3 letter word will count but if you can find the 9 letter word, that’ll be scored as a winning game.


Starts out as a simple memory matching game. Flip the cards 2 at a time, reveal a pair and they’ll stay revealed. Reveal them all and you win. Sounds simple? Try the 8×8 size, 64 different cards, 32 pairs for a real challenge.

Follow Me

Remember Simon Says or similar games, where you follow a sequence of 4 coloured lights? Well imagine that but turbo charged. Up to 25 emoji, unlimited sequence length and options to make it faster. I bet you can’t get past 15. Great fun for kids and adults alike.

Peg Solitaire

This is hard. 3 variations of peg solitaire, for you to solve, English, French and Diamond boards. Clear a peg, by “jumping” another peg over it. Do this for all pegs and leave the last one in the centre spot to win. Fiendish.

Why Build A Games Compendium?

In the days before mobile phones, people read newspapers. These often included pages dedicated to strategy puzzles, word puzzles, number challenges and more. Hoping to tingle your nostalgia, I built a collection of games in one neat app, which features a wide variety of classic and modern puzzles, in one app, originally called, The Puzzle Pages.

Each game has unlimited puzzles, autogenerated as you play, so you’ll never run out of games.

As I added more and more games, it became more than just puzzles, so it was rebraneded as Higgster’s Games Compendium. With new modes added regularly, at no extra cost, there’s always something new to challenge your mind. Higgster’s Games Compendium is the perfect way to relax and unwind, or to test your brainpower.
