Description:

iTangram is a fantasy arcade puzzle game where you need to
interact with objects of different shapes. The story takes place in an
ancient magic kingdom where magicians used the Crystal of Four
Elements to control the weather and protect people from nature forces.
However, one day the energy of the Crystal got out of control, thus
provoking many natural cataclysms. By filling empty cells with objects
of the right shapes you'll need to reconstruct some ruined castles and
help the kingdom magicians to gain control over the raging elements
once again.

All the objects of different shapes physically interact with each
other, and they appear on the screen faster and faster as you play.
Also, you will be able to use some magic runes to make the things
easier: Time-slowing Rune, Trowel, Hammer, etc.

The game features excellent graphics and music, 10 levels (40 more can
be purchased) in five different parts of the world, 5 bonus levels,
enhanced physics and various achievements, records chart is coming
soon.

This is FREE + DLC, very interesting concept, great graphics but the 10 levels included in this "lite version" are very easy. I also think that 99c for 10 levels is a bit on the pricey side.

I came across this a couple of days ago. Highly polished game with both excellent concept and execution. Reminds me of certain "10tons" efforts.

One major problem though: it doesn't save your game. Once this is fixed, I might consider the DLC. Although I agree it doesn't appear to be good value and I would much prefer the full game for 2-3$ right off the bat.

This looks cool but the pricing doesn't sound too good.

Seems alot of companies are going down the root of downloadable level packs now I can see the logic in some ways as it allows ppl to try before they buy . Only problem is they always allow you to play the easy levels so you don't get too see how challenging it's gonna be . I like others would prefer the game was a higher price without the DLC with a lite version brought out with mixed difficulty levels to me that would make more sense .

Hello Gabrien!

Now game is saved automatically after completing a level.
Could you please explain a little bit more what's the game save problem you have?

Could you make a paid version that has no in-app purchases that includes all of the content?
