The tangram is a dissection puzzle consisting of seven flat shapes, called tans, which are put together to form shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape (given only in outline or silhouette) using all seven pieces, which may not overlap.

45 Levels of pure fun!

Always wanted to try this

I always saw this at doctor's offices and wanted to play with them, but didn't get much of a chance. This is my chance to play with it.

There are some bugs and some suggestions that I have.

The bug mainly is the one brought up by dargor17, with multiple pattern combinations that would work, but when and guessing what combination you have for the solution.


1) Have it so that when the gray shaded part is filled the level is solved.

2) I noticed that you had a snap feature, but as thebigo1081 suggested, a better one is needed. There were many times when I had the piece pretty much on the spot, but it was slightly off, making me have to maneuver the piece ever so slightly to get it in the right place... kinda annoying

3) For a future game maybe have the silhouette on the side or corner and have the getting the player to make the silhouetted figure with no outline.

Great game though

Brings back memories...

I loved tangram when I was a kid and I really enjoyed playing this game.
I have one complaint, though: there are some levels in which there are 2 or more equivalent solutions (meaning that the overall shape is the same but the disposition of individual pieces is different) but only one is recognized by the game as correct. This was a bit annoying because it becomes a guessing game to see what configuration was the one you chose (yeah I can check the solutions but then I lose time and cups).

Pretty fun, but some flaws

I had a good time with this. One thing I liked was that the music loop was long enough to keep it from becoming overly repetitive. One problem I had was that it was difficult to fit the pieces in, maybe you could set it up to autoplace them once they're near the right spot.


How original. Kudos
