Align It! iphone ipad ipod touch puzzle app Review
When I saw the icon for this puzzle app I thought: Oh no, not another puzzle where you slide the horizontal and vertical axes to align the columns.
I was wrong!
The object is to align the columns, but the mechanism for changing the tiles is completely different. Pay attention kiddies.
Tap on 2 adjacent tiles - then tap on two other adjacent tiles and they will swap. Note: each pair of tiles must come together to form a square or a single row or column.
Imagine 16 tiles are ordered like this:
1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8
9 10 11 12
13 14 15 16
You can swap 1 and 2 with 3 and 4. Or 1 and 5 with 2 and 6. Or 1 and 5 with 6 and 2. This last swap is different from the previous swap because the 1 will go to the 6 place.
Align It! was invented by R.B. McKenzie. There is a free version, so definitely give it a shot!
