I've tried a good many puzzles and brainteasers for the e-ink Kindles, and I haven't seen anything else quite like "Cut the Shapes." The ability to visualize shapes and spatial relationships is the key to solving these puzzles, where the goal is to cut groups of square blocks apart to form two or three identical shapes (although the dissected shapes may have to be rotated or reflected).

The Menu on the Kindle gives several options, including hints if you just can't figure out where to start cutting. The menu also includes a simple, brief tutorial. There are four levels of play: Easy, Medium, Hard, and Master, each with 25 puzzles. Try a few puzzles for each level to get a feel for them. The first few puzzles in each level are relatively simple, but the difficulty ramps up steadily as you play, especially in the Hard and Master levels. All levels are unlocked, so you can attack them in any order you like. The number of stars that you earn by solving a puzzle is determined by how long it took you and how many hints you used.

After a few puzzles, I began to understand some basic strategies. One tip: before you begin, count the number of pieces and divide by two or three, as appropriate, to determine how many pieces will be in the shape you dissect. That one bit of information will help a lot.

I have to say that Cut the Shapes is one of the most unique and addictive puzzle games that I've played on my Kindle. With 100 levels, you'll be playing Cut the Shapes for a while. And you can always go back to levels where you took too much time or used too many hints and try for three stars.

Note: I played Cut the Shapes on a Kindle Paperwhite.

If you like visual puzzles, this app is for you! Once I got past the first few puzzles, I was really having to think to get the correct answer. I like having the option of going back to better my times on each puzzle. If you like a challenging visual puzzle, you will enjoy this as much as we have. We are competitive and like to beat each other's scores. Hours of family fun!

Cut the Shapes is an intriging game for the brain. It was better than anticipated. I was able to get through the easy level rather quickly, however, the medium and master levels are more challenging. Recommended for all ages.

Cut the Shapes: Basic is a high quality puzzle game that your whole family will love - mine sure does! The puzzles are super fun and they come in three difficulty levels so your kids can play the Easy ones and crush them (even my youngest can get through them with just a little help) and you can play the Medium and Hard ones. And some of the those Hard ones are tough, let me tell you! I love the variety of puzzles and that you can make a mistake and keep trying - it doesn't kick you back to the main menu like some puzzle games. I like how much my kids like these puzzles and how it really stimulates their brains. We play this on a Kindle Keyboard and the controls are easy to use, too. Two thumbs up!
