What would you get if the took the rotatable 3D artifacts found in Zen Bound, and combined them with the twisty-turny mechanisms at the heart of The Room?

We reckon you'd probably wind up with something that look a lot like Lost Toys, the eerie new 3D puzzler from developer Barking Mice.

The aim of the game is to re-engineer a series of discarded wooden toys into their original forms. For some reason, these abandoned playthings have been distorted into unrecognisable shapes, and it's your job to rotate heads and reposition limbs until the wooden knickknack is back in working order.

The challenge of Lost Toys is to fix each object in as few moves as possible, thereby turning the grey and dusty playpen into a virtual Toys R Us  with the minimum of fuss. You don't have to worry about time limits - it's all about making the right moves.

As you can see from the trailer above, the creators are definitely going for an ugly-pretty vibe with this one. We're interested to see what Lost Toys has to offer, so stay tuned for the AppSpy review.

You can download Lost Toys for £2.49 / $3.99 on iPhone and iPad right now.
