Thank goodness for hints
A beautiful game, with lush, tropical graphics. Your task, as an explorer, is to piece together triangular stones to fit onto ancient monuments. Each triangular side has a part of an animal drawn on it, and when you match up the animals correctly, they morph from 2D to 3D and become animated. Very cool! But the challenge is putting the puzzle pieces together correctly. The first couple puzzles seemed fairly easy, but with later puzzles, the additional pieces meant a greater number of combinations...and the puzzle pieces can be rotated, adding even more combinations. So I found it easier to start off with a hint and put at least one piece where it belonged, and work from there.
I think this is a game that will "click" with you, or it won't. At first, I didn't think I would get it, but I found myself enjoying it, like doing an animated jigsaw puzzle. Make use of the hints early on, and it's easier to get the hang of it early on! Also give this a try if you enjoy deciphering codes or working with jigsaw puzzles.

Great Modern Classic
Triazzle puzzles have been around for decades, and I played with them fondly in school as a kid. Now I can play the same fun puzzle with my own kids from my computer! The graphics are stunning, the music is fresh and enjoyable, and the challenge on the next level is always a little harder. You can take as long as you want to complete a level, but if you are competitive then you'll try to solve it for the gold medal. I am just excited I finally found a game my whole family can enjoy playing.

Just wasn't my kinda game
I found the game so boring, that I erased after about 6 puzzles. Just not interesting at all, if you haven't play a game like this before make sure you try the free hour first, because I couldn't stand it.

difficult brain teaser
I started by enjoying this game and the first few games were excellent, then I came to a triform game and I found it impossible to solve,and without a chance to skip the level and no hints, I became frustrated and I wish I had not bought it.I am dissapointed as I thought this was going to be a challenge but not impossible By the time I had tried the triform level about 10-15 times without success I was ready to throw the computer in the bin. I will not buy this type of game again

I just wanted to write this review because you don't have to start at the beginning every time you start. It's saves your progress. It's a pretty okay puzzle game if you like that sort of game.

Fun with harder challenges later in the game
This game requires matching and thought. Having enjoyed triazzle board puzzles, I enjoy this one as well. As you progress you will be given different shapes to fill in (see the video) so not all puzzles are like the board puzzles where you fill in a massive space by starting at the edges and work your way inward. Also completion of each puzzle advances your way 'around an island' and you will be able to choose off-shoots of that path to explore other puzzles - usually a slight variation of the triazzle, called triform. You can continue to progress through the game without completing the off-shoots. I have been unable to complete a couple of them but I also only allocate a certain amount of time per attempt. #I own this game#
