Abstract Puzzle

Abstract Puzzle makes unique, thought-provoking games, especially for mobile.

Mobile Board Games

Blither, a simple capture and territory game for two players designed by Martin Grider. Available for iOS.

Thrive Digital Board Game, a digital version of a board game published by Adams Apple Games and designed by Martin Grider. Available for iOS and Android.

Root Down, a modern abstract strategy board game designed around the concept of game pieces that "activate" other pieces. Game design by Martin Grider.


Abstract Puzzle is based out of Minneapolis, MN. When not working on our own games, we also do contract iOS and Unity development.

Abstract Puzzle is led by game designer and developer, Martin Grider (but all the best apps are a group effort).

You can read more about Martin on his blog at chesstris.com, or on his resume at martingrider.name.

There is also a page for games previously published by Abstract Puzzle.
