Inventive block puzzler Shapist reduced to 69p / 99c on iPad

Sliding block-puzzler Shapist has just been reduced to 69p / 99c (down from £1.99 / $2.99) on iPad.

Shapist at first appears no different to its block-manipulating genre cousins. It involves trying to clear a space in the shape that will allow you to move to the next level.

There is no tutorial and no explanation as to how to proceed. It's pure intuitive trial and error from the get go.

However, as you make your way through the game, you'll eventually come across mechanics brand new to the genre. Certain blocks can be shrunk or stretched to fit in a variety of different spaces. Others don't appear to want to move from their initial position, pinging right back as soon as you move your finger.

It's a game that rewards experimentation. And, with over fifty puzzles to solve, you'll have plenty of time to test the limitations the game's rules.

Shapist's as delightfully simple as its premise. As you can see from the Pocket Gamer dev demo above, something rather mesmerizing about sliding pastel-coloured blocks around for no reason other than to see what happens.

You can download Shapist on iPad for the reduced price of 69p / 99c for a limited time.
