omgTANGRAM a puzzling puzzle game for your Windows Phone

If you like puzzle games, you'll like omgTANGRAM. This is a Windows Phone game is a collection of tangram puzzles where you have to fill a wide range of silhouettes that you have to with seven puzzle pieces or tans.

On the surface omgTANGRAM looks like a simple puzzle game but once you dig into things, this Windows Phone game is full of challenges and a nice way to pass the time.

omgTANGRAM has three sections. A tutorial and two puzzle sections (an ocean and desert scenario) with seventeen puzzle in each section. Even if you know your way around tangram puzzles, you'll need to go through the tutorial on how to move, rotate and flip gaming pieces.  You basically tap on the piece you want to move and a spinning wheel appears around the piece.  Slide your finger around the wheel to spin the piece, double tap to flip it, and tap/hold/slide to move it.

Once you complete the tutorial you can tackle each puzzle section. The layout of the sections has your puzzle choices up top that are side scrollable. Just tap on the puzzle you want to tackle and it takes center screen. Your seven puzzle pieces are scattered about and you slide them into the silhouette to complete the puzzle.

Once you complete the puzzle, it comes to life and populates the background of the scene. For example, as you finish puzzles in the ocean scene you'll find fish and boats begin to appear on the high seas.

The puzzles can be rather challenging and the only hint you have is that if you place a piece in just a dreadful position it will shake. Otherwise, you're on your own.

The biggest downside to omgTANGRAM is that the game is ad supported and the ad banner tends to get in the way at times. It's a shame there's not an option to pay $.99 to get rid of the ads. Nonetheless, omgTANGRAM is a good addition to our Windows Phone puzzle game library.

omgTANGRAM is a free, ad-supported game for your Windows Phone that you can snatch up here in the Windows Phone Store.
