I remember playing Safecracker with a friend, a few years back, and we actually had a great time trying solving all those puzzles... So i was wondering if someone here knows a similar game. Is there a sequel?

Thank you kissy

Volkana,

There are 2 old releases of Safecracker; the original at 2001 and another in 2006.
See which one you played.

Problem is that this was not my game so i don't have it. I think it was the 2006 release according to some screenshots i found on the internet. The 2001 release was showing something like a tv screen (or something like that) as you play? If so i was definitely played the 2006 Safecracker

Hope this helps blush

There is another game loaded with puzzles that's a little foggy in my brain. I think it was created by Microsoft and I think it was called Pandoras box.

Ok i googled it and there is indeed a game called Pandora's box created by Microsoft loaded with 350 puzzles!!!

The site says that it's creator is Alexey Pajitnov the creator of Tetris (that's interesting) the only thing that bothers me is that this game is rather old (1999) and i'm not sure if it will run under Win7. The developers state that the demo itself needs a patch to run under Pendium III or later... Well i'll download the demo and give it a try..

Thanks Geo!

Any other suggestions?

Have you looked here in Gameboomers/Independent Games. Magicama and Xiama by Peter Hewitt will really get your brain cells working.
Pandora's Box is mainly jigsaw type puzzles-works on Vista and Windows 7 with a patch I think. wave

Recommend 'The Room' (thanks stevefox) what a super game!!! Really have to drag myself away, so engrossing and not too difficult for the more mature brain. wave
