The Shapelings live together on
an asteroid where teamwork is critical. Each Shapeling is
protected against falling rocks of their own shape and color,
but if anybody is in the wrong place it’s pandemonium for them
all! Click a Shapeling to “select” them, then click another and
they will swap places. Get each one under the right falling rock
so that they will all be safe for another round! Get through 5
rounds in a row with no mistakes and you win the game!
This game adds the “select”
function to the student’s repertoire of basic mouse techniques.
It also requires players to use quick logical thinking and to
plan several steps in advance – some rounds require multiple
swaps in quick succession. Shape- and color-matching skills, of
course, are a must for this game.
