Features

  • 45 different puzzles sorted by increasing difficulty. Watch as children are rewarded for completing more and more difficult levels.
  • Three assists per puzzle, allowing younger children to complete even the most difficult levels by auto-fitting up to three puzzle pieces.
  • Astounding animations of the puzzles upon completion to breathe life into the artwork and capture the essence of the word.
  • Audio playback of each word to allow children to correlate the visual component of the word with its sound.
  • Intuitive controls with an emphasis on simplicity so that young children can navigate the app.

These animations were created by Pinnguaq’s 2D artist Ian MacLean
