Description: TangramsVR is a casual virtual reality puzzle game designed for Oculus and HTC Vive. Players face puzzles of outlined objective shapes. Players must move the provided blocks to fit inside the objective. The initial release on itch contained 10 puzzles in 3 rooms. Additional content, bug fixes, and game play enhancements have been added since that time.

Review: Tangrams VR is like the VR version of those little wooden puzzles where you had to make a shape using the pieces provided to you. Sadly it isn’t as much fun as those little ingenious puzzles and can at times be rather frustrating to control. And dare I say the dungeon setting doesn’t do much for the game nether. But yet…it works! Its a great use of VR and has a nice learning curve. Sure, you have to fight to get control of the pieces, but once you have hold of them making the puzzle is relatively easy (provided you know the solution).

Yes I wish it was easier to control, yes I wish it was placed in a better, more relaxing setting and yes I wish there were more puzzles. But for the first version and just a couple of quid, I reckon this could easily be a great game within just a few updates. This is well worth a download now to support the developer and get those updates coming.
