WHAT IS SPATIAL ABILITY?
Spatial ability is "the aptitude needed to mentally process three-dimensional images of objects." (Fleisig et al. 2004).
WHY IS SPATIAL ABILITY IMPORTANT?
"There is evidence which indicates that strong spatial skills are required for achievement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. Many people, including science and engineering professors, view such skills as important for success in fields like engineering." (Gutierrez, Dominguez, & Gonzalez, 2015)
CAN SPATIAL ABILITY BE FURTHER DEVELOPED?
"The level of spatial performance someone is capable of may change over time. You are likely to gain in performance through practice, training, and learning, but you may also lose in standing relative to others if they acquire more experience that supports their performance or make more progress in their intellectual development." (Johns Hopkins University, 2018)
If you wish to improve or retain the level of your spatial ability, -unfold- will be the best option for you.

Fun Concept, Rough Execution
I like the concept and minimalist aesthetic, but the controls to rotate the polyhedron are half backward. Swipe right-to-left and the polyhedron rotates to the left, which seems correct. However, swipe top-to-bottom and the polyhedron rotates up, which seems backward. Also, swiping to switch between the marker shapes doesn’t work. When I swipe right-to-left on the shape selection, the second marker shape is briefly displayed, but the first marker pops back as soon as my finger leaves the screen. That leaves clicking on the wee icon representing each marker as the only way to pick a different marker.
Just a question
I like the game the functionality is unique I have never played a game much like this before and I am very appreciative of the intuition that went to the game. There is only one thing that bugs me and it doesn't particularly deal with the game itself it's more of the music that is played while you were playing the game. I just cannot seem to put a name to this song I recognize it and it's aggravating that I can't find the name of it anywhere in the description of the game it's self. I really need to know what the name of the song is because the song is mesmerizing to me. Please if somebody or maybe the developers if you guys know please tell me
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks for your nice review. Could you mail us about the background music? Thanks for your kindness.
Fun but still 1 bug
Having the shapes match the directions on the folded object would make it much too easy so I’m happy they don’t match. As of this point all puzzles are correct except 50 which two shapes need to be swapped incorrectly to complete.
