4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but still needs some work on snapping September 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
It is a pretty good twist similar to a few other games. For some reason I expected the pieces to fall from the sides or only slide that direction, but that isn't the case. The snapping when the piece is positioned is a little off and sometimes claims a piece won't fit when the outline/shadow shows it is fine. I've had to try and place a piece 3 times to make it fit(even the last piece)...and each try counts as a move.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent basic tangrams game September 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
The first thing tangrams fans should know is that there's no rotation of pieces in this game's puzzles. They all fit in at the angle you first find them at. This drops the difficulty level considerably, though larger puzzles will still offer plenty of complexity. The levels are randomly generated, but you can alter the parameters-- grid height (between five and ten), grid width (also between five and ten), number of pieces (between five and fourteen), and normal or challenge mode. In normal mode the grid is completely empty when the game begins; in challenge mode there are fixed pieces already in place that you have to work around. If you like a particular level, you can share it using e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. The design is basic but it all looks sharp, even on a Kindle Fire HD 8.9. You can choose among twelve different background designs, from soothing blue to wood-grain to metallic black.

So far so good. What are the downsides? Well, the app crashed on me once in a very short play span; I'll update the review if it happens again. And there are lots of little design flaws that downgrade the experience. The options don't always interact right: if you choose a smaller grid and a higher number of pieces, the game will simply give you as many pieces as it can, even if it's below what you chose. There's a list of achievements, but they're pretty dull. There are star ratings for performance, but they're a little too generous. There are typos in a couple places ("challange" mode). The placement detection is vexing-- you have to watch the shadows of the blocks and make sure none are outside the grid or over already placed blocks. If they are, the piece will snap back, even if it looks like it's lined up right. And worst of all, the internal navigation is poor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but needs polishing, permissions seem ok September 16, 2013
By Mark B
Verified Purchase
This game is ok, the concept is good, but the execution needs polishing. spelling errors, mapping of controls, etc.

The review above mentions bad permissions. I must have downloaded a different app because my permissions aren't as nefarious.

I will say that the same app on google pl@y has a different author listed. Why? I have no idea. Seems odd. Foreign programmers.

CUBETRIS is certainly almost squeaky, squeaky clean in terms of permissions and code - no analytics or such fluff in the code, and the permission set of Read/Write SD card is benign in itself... yet it doesn't want to move off my Device Memory. :P

Still, only 10MB total install, so I suppose it is a moot issue.

More Games pictorial links leading to the Amazon Appstore, a mixture of freebie and premium games (the two examples I looked at, the premium had similarly clean permissions, the other, a freebie solitaire, not so clean - so make sure you double check before hitting that Appstore button).

Gameplay is basic Tanagram style, no where as polished as the MONTEZUMA tanagram puzzle series, but potentially much tougher due to the ability to customize total grid size, number of pieces, and tapping on a "Hard" difficulty, making up for the lack of eye-candy bling.

There is a background timer going on, and your speed of solving does reflect your resulting star reward - and there is no option to immediately replay the same level to get a better star achievement. Not sure how I feel about that; one part of me wants to keep doing the level until I get three, yet I kind of see how this setup would encourage continuing play in perhaps the hopes of encountering that 1 star level that was only 1 star because you stopped for a minute to chase ninja cats outside...

The resume option is oddly, yet interestingly done. Each game has a unique ID, and when you hit "Resume", it defaults the last ID of the puzzle you were on. But you can type in a manual ID for a specific puzzle. Not much any use for solo play (who the heck will remember a complicated number like that?

2.0 out of 5 stars Misleading to put the syllable "tris" in this game September 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
Every time I've seen a game with "Tris" tacked on to the end, it's been a Tetris clone. I don't know what these guys were thinking, but this is NOT a Tetris clone.

What is it? It's a VERY simple jigsaw puzzle game without a picture. They merely create a grid of squares, cut the squares into pieces, stick the pieces around the edge, and you put them into place. They award more "stars" for a solution if you use fewer placements. The pieces aren't stuck in place once you position them on the game board, you can move them around if you need to.

Other reviewers mentioned interface issues and typos, but frankly I didn't get that far. I wasn't looking for a toddler level jigsaw puzzle game, and as soon as it became apparent that's what this is, I was done with it.

If you happen to enjoy doing simple jigsaws of random blocky shapes more than I do, you might enjoy this. It just wasn't for me. I thought it was misleadingly named and showed virtually no imagination as a game.

I'll go back to yesterday's FAotD and herd sugar granules around. That was fun.
