I’m really enjoying this game at the moment. I love the way the levels are laid out to become progressively more difficult as you advance through each stage and build a more solid understanding of the gameplay mechanics.

You Better Shape Up!

If you’re a bit unsure how to get started when you first play this game, I’d recommend checking out the How To Play guide which can be accessed within the Settings menu.

The concept is incredibly easy to understand but I promise that you’ll soon be scratching your head as the puzzles get tougher and tougher!

As I mentioned in the introduction, the levels have a great difficulty curve, but they are also categorized according to their theme or difficulty level. You’ll start off at Shape School which is designed to help you grasp the basics, and is perfect for getting children started on pattern recognition and problem solving.

 

Fun and Educational

From here, you can move on to Shape Academy and various other puzzle packs with names such as Pythagoras Pack, Shape Salad, The Wizard, and Shape ‘N Bake, each one more challenging than the last.

Within each puzzle you’ll be presented with a selection of preset shapes which you can browse by swiping left and right. You’ll need to drag the correct shapes onto the playing board and rotate them until they match the image in the bottom left-hand corner.

It really is as simple as that. You’ll start off with basic arrangements of easily recognizable shapes and patterns, but as you get further into the game and the puzzles become more elaborate and obscure, well, all I can say is good luck my friend!
