I have not played a Tangram game in almost three years. So I was intrigued by Tangram Style on the Nintendo 3DS. The four main modes in Tangram Style are what interested me the most. Those modes are Child, Classic, Challenge, and One Touch. I am only talented enough for the Child mode.
The One Touch mode in Tangram Style is insanely difficult. You have to touch the piece, and move it into the right place. If you try and put it aside for a moment, the piece will lock right there. Classic is where most adults will most likely gravitate towards. There you move the pieces around until you find the right combination to fill the image.
Why did I hang out in Child mode while playing Tangram Style? Because I like to win, and that mode shows an outline of what piece goes where. Without it I am lost, and fail - miserably. Tangram Style may be one of the most difficult puzzle games on the Nintendo 3DS.
The 3D in Tangram Style is okay. The graphics are on the bland side. The music is silent, except when you do something. If a piece is off just a teeny tiny bit it will flash at you. This concerned me while I was playing this hand held game. At times it looked right to me. So the collision detection can be slightly off.
Rotating the pieces in Tangram Style can be challenging as well. At times I was trying to move a piece somewhere and it started the rotation process. Or the opposite would happen. This only took a second or two to resolve, but was not a pleasant experience.
experience with Tangram Style was positive. There are tons of puzzles to
play, and unlock. If you take the time to learn in Child Mode you should
be able to move up to other more difficult modes. It will take some
patience and perseverance. Solving puzzles can be a great mental
exercise. Expect to be drained mentally after playing Tangram Style.
