Tangram HD: Review




The word tangram is derived from two words, the Chinese word tang, referring to the Chinese Tang Dynasty, and the Greek word gramma, a synonym of graph. Actually, Tangram (in Chinese: 七巧板, literally: “seven boards of skill”) 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 an outline or silhouette) using all seven pieces, which may not overlap. It is reputed to have been invented in China during the Song Dynasty, and then carried over to Europe by trading ships in the early 19th century. It became very popular in Europe (for a time) and then again, during World War I. It is one of the most popular dissection puzzles in the world. A Chinese psychologist has termed the tangram “the earliest psychological test in the world”, albeit one made for entertainment rather than analysis.

With this game, (Tangram HD), you’ll be able to reproduce more than 550 Tangram designs depicting people, animals, boats, numbers etc., using the models included in the game, to form specific shapes using all seven pieces, which may not overlap.

Tangram HD may seem deceptively simple but actually requires a lot of thought to complete some of the figures. When I try to solve the puzzle for the first time, I told to myself, well I have 7 pieces (2 big triangles, 1 medium blue triangle, 2 small triangles, a yellow square and an orange rectangle). It seems like I will finish it in no time. But when I started to put one by one the pieces, I started to get frustrated! Hmm… It is not as easy as it looks after all. Of course, you can easily learn to master Tangram HD through the “Play-Regular mode and then move on to the Play-Masters mode which features unique puzzles. Once you feel you have become a master at this game, you can also try to perform as many puzzles as possible in a limited amount of time. So, just try it, and hours of fun are ahead of you.
