If you think that most of the original puzzles types are published in magazines or on blogs like this one, you may be wrong. In my experience, I discover most new puzzle types in apps.
Recently my wife asked me for assistance in solving a level of Frog Logic. It was a pretty tough level to jump into, and it took a couple of weeks before I decided to install it myself.
The object is to clear all leaves. The frog jumps from leave to leave, sinking the leaf it departs from. It may jump only horizontally and vertically, not diagonally. It may jump straight ahead, or turn 90 degrees, but it may not turn 180 degrees. The puzzle is finished if all leaves have been visited.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this app: tough puzzles, built up gradually, simple rules, original puzzle type, and not too many adds.
