FragmentsArtbegottiAre you a shape-shifter? I'm not talking about becoming a contortionist or going on some game show where you try to squeeze your body through a styrofoam wall that knocks you into a pool, I'm talking about shifting fragments to make a fine design. Fragments is a tile-sliding puzzle by Ozzie Mercado that's as simple as getting in touch with your shape-shifting side, with a bit of planning and some geometric twists.

In each puzzle, you'll find a grid with some fragments of shapes. Your goal is to align these fragments with the darkened pattern in the background by sliding the fragments around the board until they fall into place. To move a fragment, click and drag a fragment in the direction you want it to move (or click the fragment then click the corresponding arrow). You'll notice two twists that may hinder (or help) your progress, the first being that any piece that you slide will continue to slide until it hits a wall or another piece. That's not a terribly new concept, but the second twist might throw you for a loop; the pieces you're sliding around can fit in the grid together. In other words, You can slide one triangle into the same square as another triangle (assuming they're oriented properly). Conversely, you can use triangles to stop squares and mis-oriented triangles.

There are fifty levels to tackle, and getting through them is made slightly easier by the fact that while clearing a level unlocks the next level, making the level par unlocks two levels, letting you skip ahead more quickly. One slight gripe you'll probably come across is that it's sometimes hard to tell where the target design is when it's partially covered by the pieces, but Ozzie was kind enough to throw in an undo button to make correcting mistakes easier. Mix in a mellow color scheme and a funky riff in the background, and you've got a fun puzzle to slide right into.

A pleasant puzzle game that seems like it would work well on an iphone or other portable device. Would be nice to have an alternate control scheme (e.g. - keyboard) :)

Woha, a change of colour scheme is really needed on this. At least on my monitor, it is very hard to see the target squares.

Yes, it's an interesting game but the way that the starting layout obscures the pattern is annoying. I agree with MdB that a change of colour is needed to make it easier to see what it is that you are supposed to be doing. Also... need keyboard controls.
