One of my favorite games on my iPad 1 (before I sold it) was "LetsTans Deluxe" by the Grabarchuk Family. It's a great take on traditional tangram puzzles. In case you're not familiar with these puzzles, tangrams consist of seven flat shapes, called tans, which are put together to form shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape (given only an outline) using all seven pieces, which cannot overlap.

Tangrams are a natural fit for digital devices. No more bulky wooden blocks or cutting out cardboard shapes. With digital, you simply select a piece, move it into place - rotating or flipping it as necessary (tap to rotate, double tap to flip) - and adjust the pieces until they all fit. The developers have done a splendid job of adapting tangrams for the e-ink Kindles. I played LetsTans Duo on a Kindle Paperwhite, where it ran smoothly with no problems.

Don't make the mistake of thinking these tangrams are as simple as those you may have solved as a child. Some puzzles are relatively easy, but some are considerably more difficult. The LetsTans Duo puzzles are similar to those in LetsTan Classic, but there's an added degree of difficulty - there are eleven tans to fit into the given shape.

Just to add to the pressure, a timer is running. Even with a puzzle you've already solved, you can go back and try to beat your best time. At any time, you can press the "+" key and see the time that has elapsed, and pressing a lightbulb symbol will give you a hint about where a piece fits. However, using hints lowers your score, so use them sparingly.

(If I had one wish, I would add a casual mode with no timer. However, it's a count-up timer, so you don't have to worry about time running out anyway.)

LetsTans Duo is one of those puzzles that's not only fun, it's a complete mental and aesthetic experience. Not only that, be forewarned that it's highly addictive.

Didn't grab me at all so I didn't try too hard to go with it. I'm sure it was me, not the book.

I've played other Grabarchuk games before and was not hesitant to try this one and it delivered! I got this for play on my Kindle Paperwhite and there were no gliches. These tangram puzzles come in varying degrees of difficulty from easy to extreme and I could see my son playing them, if I let him, that is! These games are fun for the brain and addicting too. I will continue to look for more games from Grabarchuk.

Have already played Letstans Classic with 7 pieces - hundred of great assembling puzzles. This mode has 4 additional pieces and challenges are even more fun because harder. What i loved the most is smooth play on my Kindle Keyboard - loved to operate with keys under the screen. Great puzzle experience for so nice price.
