Puzzle Donkey is back! After several years of not being around, the Donkey makes its return. Unfortunately for some, it is as a facebook application - which means that a facebook account would need to happen (the defaults for profile information are, when I last looked, 'open' - be sure to change that if it isn't what you want).

Annoyingly, it didn't automatically bookmark itself, so I had to dive into the application settings to see it.

It looks to be a good implementation though, a puzzle of the day - without the issue of being 'blocked' when one puzzle proved too hard. Given I'm stuck on round 1 (I never liked wordy questions, I much prefer geometrical and maths based puzzles)

The Donkey and I

(Update: PuzzleDonkey is no more, in this incarnation, but it has now moved to facebook. - Murk) The Donkey, i.e. PuzzleDonkey and I are parting company rather earlier than we did with PuzzleDonkey 3.

There are some nice puzzles in there, but rather too many wordy type ones for my taste. I liked 1.03, 1.13 (despite being stuck there), 1.16 and 2.03 the most.

The sheer density of the 'wordy' ones was just annoying me, and 2.04 was the final straw. I just had no interest in going further. A pity, as some of the later puzzles in PD3 were really good, and its a shame to miss them. My favourite PD3 was the barcode question.

PD3, by comparison, was much more varied - so getting past a wordy one had the incentive that the next one would stand a good chance of being of a style I liked. This incentive doesn't exist in PD4, though I did appreciate certain features like the 'colour blind option' (though not colour blind, it was sometimes useful).
