I've tried a lot of 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 triangular blocks apart to form two or three identical shapes (although the dissected shapes may have to be rotated or reflected). I've played the other Cut the Shapes puzzles, which were made up of squares or rectangles, and - in my opinion - they were easier than working with triangles.

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.

Grabarchuk Puzzles has done it yet again. This time is a whole new concept. "Cut the shapes" is a recreational puzzle game which requires concentration and at the same time helps you exercise your visual skills. Not to mention that you can play it on almost every device that has a kindle application.

This one is much more dynamic from what we are already used to. It has a counter, the option of requesting a hint, in case you get stuck and a way to know how good you actually are after playing it since you can earn stars.

Anyway, you can enjoy 100 different puzzles from easy to master (trust me, they can get really difficult), but if you play them in order you get used to the increasing difficulty levels.

I love to play this game. My 11 year old son loves playing it also. It can be a challenge if you let it.
