By twisting and turning unfathomable objects, you cast shadows on beautifully rendered backgrounds; manipulate them just right and you’ll find shapes you’d never have expected—from rabbits to wrenches.

Amazing Game

This game is a creative masterpiece! The graphics and the mechanics and everything in this game shines. The clues, the hints, the ones with 2 pieces. It's a fun, interesting concept that is executed in a nearly flawless manner. The hints are reasonable, even if they do have micro transactions, and I adore the different themes and levels. However what makes this one of the best games in the App Store is the small, little touches. For example, you can move the stage slightly by tilting the iPhone. It's not really game mechanic, but it's a really neat touch. It's just so polished!

Wonderfully relaxing and engaging.

I do not usually write reviews on games. This is a different animal altogether though. Between the very soothing music, the challenge that makes you focus and have every thing else meltaway, plus the sheer, FUN, EASY (at times) challenge of it. All of those converge into one wonderful gaming experience. I've never, like I said, rated a game. But this? Buy the full version. You'll be happy you did. I promise!
