Review: Tangram Style


The amazing folks over at MovingPlayer have released a pretty sweet little downloadable game for the 3DS eShop called Tangram Style.  This sweet little puzzle game starts off easy, allowing you to build up your confidence, and gradually becomes more difficult as the levels progress.  As difficult as some levels become, the game is actually quite relaxing – as the description below states:

“TANGRAM STYLE on Nintendo 3DS is finally available !

Rest in your sun chair, grab a fruit cocktail, and your Nintendo 3DSTM, now you can enjoy TANGRAM STYLE, this summer’s most relaxing game, available on Nintendo eShop.
With TANGRAM STYLE, Moving Player puts the puzzle genre to its highest level of excellence and renews a classical genre with a record 612 tangrams to solve, from the easiest to the hardest.”

Most of the earlier puzzles take only seconds to complete, while the later stages take some additional thought.  I actually began playing this after my ling ride home from the office (not during the ling ride home), and I found it very relaxing after the 1 hour drive.  Although it takes some thought, it does not take a lot of concentration.  That is perfect for me, since I am pulled in a million directions after my ling day at work.

If you are a lover of puzzle games, give this one a shot, it is definitely worth the small price of $6.99.
