Blackbox Guide: 10 More Challenging Puzzle Solutions

Check this guide for 10 more challenging Blackbox puzzle solutions!

Blackbox is a unique puzzle app that requires you to "think outside the box" to turn on all the lights in a puzzle. This is literal, as you often have to do things that don't require touching the puzzles in the screen -- such as rotating your phone and changing settings.

If you haven't already, check out my Blackbox Guide: 10 Beginner Puzzle Solutions. Some of the following puzzles are slightly more challenging.

They won't be numbered, but listed by their color, number of boxes, and location.

How to Solve Puzzles in Blackbox

Single Light Orange Box - Left of the 2 yellow boxes

This one involves your phone's camera.

  • Cover your phone's camera until the screen goes black.
  • Wait about 10 seconds, then uncover it. You will see an orange color fill up the screen and turn on the light.

If you only see it cover up some of the screen, then have the camera covered for a longer time.

Single Teal Box - Above the light orange box

You will notice a Wi-Fi symbol. If you do not have Wi-Fi on, the symbol will still be there, but will be missing the top bar.

All you have to do is turn off Wi-Fi and put the phone in airplane mode to turn on the light.

Single Red Box - Left of the light orange box

This one involves the location of your phone. 

  • Lay the phone flat so everything is within the circle.
  • Spin the phone around to begin filling up the screen until the light comes on. Make sure the phone stays flat the entire time.

Single Pink Box

This is a touch ID challenge. When you start the puzzle, it says this will be hard for you and shows the touch id.

If you have touch ID setup, you cannot use the fingers that are registered to unlock touch ID. If you use the wrong fingers 3 times in a row, the light will turn on.

This challenge deals with time of day.

You will notice 3 boxes, a shiny white dot, and a hill. The boxes indicate sunrise, midday, and sunset.

  • You must open the challenge when the white dot is at each box. This time will differ depending on where you are, so it is best to google these times for your location.

Those are all the Blackbox game answers for this guide. Let me know if you have any questions!
