Ratings and Reviews
For the people who are complaining about there not being enough levels, this is just the lite version! I used to have this before I upgraded to the full version. Stop complaining about the level shortage! If you want more levels, then buy the full version! If you can't afford the full version, then stop complaining! Besides, this is free!
It's a bit difficult to grab the pieces sometimes and therefore does not feel like smooth gameplay. Additionally the pieces do not "lock" or "snap" to desired positions thus adding to a sense of overall frustration. Moreover it needs tweaking here and there, however it is a fun game and a decent time waster. Pick it up if you enjoy problem solving and have a need to visualize and implement solutions.
Easy Interface, Missing flip
The interface is simple and easy to use. Unfortunately, there's no way to flip a piece (especially the parallelagram) which limits the kind of puzzles you can create and solve. This won't matter to the casual tangram player..
