Shapist is a sliding block puzzle where you can do much more than just slide.

We made Shapist to show how a classical game concept can be embraced by physics, experimentation and new mechanics. It is designed as a timeless, beautiful object without barriers between a player and the game. There are no words. No punishment. No tutorials. No time limits and no scores... Just you & over 50 puzzles to solve.

After a soft launch for iPad in February, and a very warm reception we decided to re-release Shapist making it the game it deserves to be - universal for major mobile platforms but also better, with more levels, mechanics, with improved difficulty and design. Shapist is now approaching iPhones, Androids, tablets and windows based mobile devices.
