Excerpt: Enjoy Gaming has picked up multiple Nintendo DS games from Storm City Games. Hands On! Tangrams is one of those games. Players take various shapes and put them into a specific pattern. The goal is to get all of the shapes in there perfectly so it uses up the entire pattern.
Summary: Solve 100 puzzles in 10 different themed levels and watch them roar to life on your screen! Improve perception skills, logical thinking, and hand-eye coordination in this hands-on adventure that is loaded with fun!
Excerpt: Hands On! Tangrams is an ironic title given that this is the first time I’ve played with tangrams that I couldn’t touch. So you see, it’s not really hands on at all; I used buttons and a stylus. It would be like a cooking sim called “Eat This! Food”Â�. You can’t eat that food at all!
Conclusion: Tangrams are an ancient set of Chinese moving puzzle pieces that today entertain and challenge people across the globe. Dating back to well before the 1800's, these seven simple shapes or "Tans" come together to form hundreds of different figures with multiple solutions.
