This game is set on a flat 2-dimensional plane which you can move slightly left to right to give the game a 3 dimensional feel. When the puzzle is complete it spins around in a three dimensional pattern.
Levels are timed, but there is no time limit. If you are frustrated by a lever there is a solve button at the top of the game.
If you are struggling to place a piece look for a shape which has an obvious location to start with and then build out from there. Since there is one square and one parallelogram in each puzzle, often one or the other of those is a good starting point.
When pieces are in the correct location they snap into position and you can’t move them.
This means if a piece is moveable then it is not set in the correct placement.
What is a Tangram?
Tangrams are dissection puzzles where 7 geometric shaped pieces (triangles, square and parallelograms) are cut from a square. These puzzle pieces are called tans and a wooden version of this puzzle was originally invented in China around 200 years ago.
Using the same 7 pieces a person can make hundreds of unique and representative shapes associated with animals and objects in the world.
Famed puzzle maker Samuel Lloyd wrote a book titled The Eighth Book of Tan in 1908. The whimsical book claimed the puzzle format was 4,000 years old.
