I'm having fun with this little game, but it's actually too easy, because of the actual-sized outline into which you fit the pieces. It would be more challenging if there were an option to turn that off. I used to have a plastic Tangram set where you actually moved physical pieces around, and there were no actual-sized outlines to fit the pieces into, just a small picture showing the desired shape. This was much more of a challenge.
Work your brain without realizing it — what a fun game!
Want a puzzle game that is so fun that you don't realize you are using different parts of your brain to solve them? This game uses both left and right sides of your brain as you visualize the pattern and work out the way the 7 pieces fit. Amazing!
Good for my brain
Engaging puzzles. I like that you can build directly on a silhouette or with the silhouette above for a greater challenge. I had a problem with the game and the support team got back o me right away and figured out it was my device running out of storage. They were great!
