Test your puzzle-solving skills with Peces (Tangram Game) for Mac by fitting colored fragments that look like basic geometric figures into a predetermined shape. The game boasts no less than 18,000 preloaded shapes, which span four difficulty levels. Overall, it's a challenging game that has a lot of replay value since you can create your own levels or let the software generate some instantly for you.

Peces (Tangram Game) for Mac, like many open-source projects, doesn't put much emphasis on design; in other words, the minimalistic main window won't make your jaw drop. But the game compensates with its fun gameplay. The objective of each puzzle is clear: Use the provided shapes to form the figure displayed by dragging, dropping, and rotating fragments. In terms of replay value, the game is unmatched, having a staggering number of existing puzzles. No online multiplayer mode is available, but the game features offline competitions in which two players race to solve identical figures as fast as possible.

If you like arranging jigsaw puzzles, you will enjoy Peces (Tangram Game) for Mac. While the gameplay is quite unique, it can be highly entertaining, especially when completing a difficult game. Though not necessarily slow, this game is for patient gamers; if shooters and racing simulators are your favorites, then you may want to find a more fast-paced game.

Developer's Description

Play the traditional Tangram game of Chinese origin.
Peces is an open source game based on the Chinese game called Tangram. The main objective of the game is to create different figures by putting together pieces like squares, triangles, rectangles, and others. This simple yet challenging game has at least 40 gaming modes and 4 different difficulty levels. You will be able to select among different figures like trees, boats, animals, etc., and at the precise moment you start to move the pieces a timer will start counting the time that you will spend trying to solve the challenge. The game has four difficulty levels, which makes it suitable for both, kids and adults. Besides, the game incorporates 40 gaming modes (and more 31,000 Tangram designs), from 3 to 14 pieces, and this feature makes the game a real challenge. Another good feature of the game is the possibility to create new figures and add them to the main game. In addition, it is possible to create competitions against your friends, and select only the shapes you want to use. Moreover, you will be able to save these shapes to your PC, in order to use them later.
