Enigma is a puzzle game inspired by Oxyd on the Atari ST and Rock'n'Roll on the Amiga. The object of the game is to find uncover pairs of identically colored Oxyd stones. Simple? Yes. Easy? Certainly not! Hidden traps, vast mazes, laser beams, and, most of all, countless hairy puzzles usually block your direct way to the Oxyd stones … If you are new to Enigma, you may want to take a look at a few screenshots or peek at the user manual.

Enigma is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and most flavors of Linux and other modern Unices.

Enigma is free software and may be distributed and modified under the terms of the General Public License.

April 2 2013: Enigma 1.20 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Enigma 1.20 for Windows and Linux, not yet 6 years since our last stable release. Enigma 1.20 comprises:

  • 305 new Enigma levels, 95 new Pentomino levels, and 1077 imported Sokoballs,
  • a new API, involving a reengineering of many objects, a consistent naming scheme for all objects, and a rewrite of almost every level,
  • a vast number of new objects, like wires, barriers, and yinyang-stones,
  • many improved images for higher resolutions, including new coins,
  • level music (go to options menu to activate it),
  • and many improvements and bug fixes.

You can find Enigma 1.20 for Windows and Linux in our download section. Unfortunately, we cannot yet offer a version for OS X, this will be our next goal.

Our thanks go to our team of developers and all our level authors, to Clifford Tasner for the new music, to Nobby and Thomas for their great levels, feedback, level organisation, the Enigma movies, and for always pressing us to finally release version 1.20. However, there would be rather a 1.02 than a 1.20, wasn't it for the work of a single man, who, single-handedly, invented and realized the new API, the face of Enigma as it is today: Ronald Lamprecht's commitment to Enigma cannot be appreciated high enough. We hope to have him back soon, and, until then, that we can live up to his visions for this wonderful game.

Have fun!
