If staying up past midnight means I have found my new, favorite game, then so be it. I started to play Triazzle yesterday and got so caught up in it, I could not put it down for more than 5 minutes. First of all, the graphics are so sharp and colorful along with the animations. I love the ambient sounds of the rain forest, and find them very restful. Triazzle is an intriguing game where you fit triangular pieces into the main, large triangle. However, each piece can only fit one way, so you must be careful. Pieces will rotate to fit themselves in place, and animals will animate to let you know if you have pieced them correctly. The puzzle can be played with 9 or 16 pieces. The levels begin with Kids and work up to quite complicated! I started at Level 2, and had to back down to Kids (I know, very embarrassing) because I wanted to really understand the game in entirety. I am back to Level 2 now, and still haven't got it right. Yet, the desire to solve the puzzle persists. If you truly cannot solve, shake the device, you will hear thunder and the pieces will magically re-arrange themselves. Some features include: 9 and 16 piece format, beginner, intermediate and difficult levels, special kids' games for 5+, animated characters when correctly matched, shake to solve, 'Simple Background' option (if you get distracted by the colorful visuals), and auto save for games. I was impressed by the organization of the menu and excellent instructions. It's clear to see this game is extremely well thought out and put-together. What I particularly like is that there is no timed clock to beat, so I can relax and examine the puzzle while enjoying the music. With Version 3.0.1, three issues were fixed: a bug where sometimes a game was saved incorrectly, a crashing bug, and finally new drop shadows were added to the puzzle pieces making them easier to distinguish. Enjoy Triazzle, and experience a unique kind of puzzle.

"Triazzle is the animated, captivating matching puzzle that comes to life. Match the triangular puzzle pieces containing colorful characters in this beautiful pick-up-and-play puzzle game based on the award winning brain teasers. Seven puzzle modes, an endless supply of challenges, stunning artwork and exotic music make Triazzle a delight for the mind as well as the senses. The Matches feature tracks your correct matches and highlights them when tapped. The more you solve, the more Triazzle will wiggle, hop, flap, spin and glow."
