How to change the selection in menus

You can either swipe to the left or the right, or drag the selection left and right.

How to use your own pictures

When you are on the “Select Picture” screen (after tapping “New Game”, or completing a puzzle), tap the “Add Picture” button. Choose whether you want to import a picture from the device’s library or take a new one with the camera. Once the picture is imported, tap “OK”: it is now displayed in the menu, and ready to be used to create a puzzle.

How to remove some of the photos you imported

On the “Select Picture” screen, select the photo you want to remove, and tap the “Delete” button. Confirm the operation, which will also delete the saved games and best times associated with the picture.

How to save and reload games

To save your game, go to the pause menu (using the pause icon), the tap the “Save Game” button. You can then tap the “Resume” button to continue playing. To reload a game, simply tap “Load Game” from the main menu, and choose the game you want to continue.

You can have several saved games at the same time, one per picture. The Load Game menu allows you to delete saved games you do not want to finish. When a puzzle is completed, the corresponding saved game (if any) is deleted.

How to find some information in the game

Most of the information on this page is also displayed as tips in the pause menu of the game. A different tip is shown every 10 seconds, but you can read through them by tapping on the left or right side of the text, to move backward or forward in the list.


How to rotate pieces

Tap on a piece to rotate it. Pieces can be rotated both on the board, and in the browser at the bottom of the screen.

How to see other pieces in the browser

The recommended way is to swipe the browser to the left or the right to see another page of pieces. Alternatively, you can also drag the browser left and right, with your finger between pieces.

How to hide the picture to make the game more difficult

Tap the checkerboard icon to hide the picture. Tap it another time to make the photo visible again.

How to zoom in and out

Use the pinch gesture to zoom in and out.

How to move the board

You can move the board by putting your finger in a spot where there is no piece, and dragging it.

How to reset the board’s position and zoom level

Tap the target icon to center the board and reset the zoom level. Double-tap it to use the second predefined zoom level.

How to move a block of pieces

Hold your finger on a piece to also select those attached to it. Once you see the selection change (selected pieces have a green outline), you can drag it.

How to get help

Click the pause icon to go to the pause menu, then use the “Help” button and choose one of the helps available. The game can sort pieces for you (that is, put the borders first in the browser), display the shapes of pieces on the board, rotate the pieces in the browser back to their correct orientation, or highlight pieces that are misplaced on the board (they will have a red outline).

I have placed all the pieces on the board, and the game does not end

Most likely, two pieces of the same shape and with similar colors are not in the right spots, and need to be switched. You can use the “Show Misplaced” help to locate such pieces.

I have misplaced several pieces on the board, what should I do?

You can keep moving pieces on the board to reorganize them, but you also have the option of dragging some pieces back into the browser, and free some space on the board.
