AN AWESOME 3D GEOMETRY GAME FROM CYBERCHASE! Introducing a 3D puzzle game starring Buzz and Delete from CYBERCHASE. For best results, close all background applications!
Bumbling bots Buzz and Delete accidentally zapped the houses in Botopolis totally flat. Help rebuild the town by turning 2D shapes into 3D structures.
8 unique levels with increasing challenges.
Over 70 flat 2D shapes transform into 40 3D structures.
MATCH THE PICTURE
Stack, re-stack and rotate shapes until they match your goal structure.
As levels increase, select which 2D shapes will make your goal structure.
The faster you complete each building, the more stars you earn. Replay buildings and levels to score a faster time. At the end of the game, a surprise awaits.
CYBERCHASE 3D Builder is designed for children ages 6-9, but it is truly a game for all ages! Players will understand how 3-dimensional geometric shapes are made from simple 2-dimensional shapes (such as squares, triangles and rectangles). The game also helps develop spatial reasoning skills and the ability to visualize and manipulate objects in 3-dimensional space.
Touch screen technology, coupled with a fully interactive visual display, offer a direct connection between tactile learning and 3D visualization. Throughout the game, Buzz and Delete provide audio support, and players can also tap the Help button for more assistance.

What's New in Version 1.2.3
Only works once?
I am a teacher and I paid to download this app to my personal iPad so my students could use it. Of course, I wanted to experiment with the app myself before showing it to them so I can foresee any potential issues and learn how it works. I enjoyed messing around with it and got to level four before deciding I had done enough to move on.
When I brought my iPad to school and tried to use the app with students I was very disappointed to find that everything I had done myself was gone and could not be practiced again. I was also unable to move on to the next level to let students try.
I am frustrated, regret buying this app, and feel like I was misled. There should be some kind of disclaimer stating that the game is meant to be played in one sitting.
I don't understand why people are having problems with this. My 4 year old puzzle genius had no problem breezing through Levels 1-4, but for some reason, Levels 5-8 are still locked. We've played the game several times. Last time we stopped at Level 4-I just checked and that's where it brought me. We've had this app on an iPad Air for about 3 months
