Review: Puzzle Planets

Looking for a great puzzle? Puzzle Planets will expand and challenge your mind.

View on the App Store: Puzzle Planets - National Geographic Society

Features of Puzzle Planets:

  • Visualise three dimensional objects and patterns.
  • Learn about evolution and the forces of nature by experiencing them.
  • Learn how continents are created by tectonic activity.
  • Manipulate spherical objects in space.
  • Challenge preconceived notions of what a puzzle is.

Based on the evolutionary principle, players help planets to support life by piecing together the planet's surface (in 3D) - a spherical puzzle!

Produce environmental actions such as smashing tectonic plates together, create rifts that form mountains and make volcanoes erupt to start the evolutionary cycle and support life. 

The quicker you are, the further life will evolve on each of the 15 planets, enabling you to see the advanced life-forms your planet supports. 

This is a challenging 3 dimensional spherical puzzle and can be difficult at first to 'get your head around' - it's like nothing you've ever played before. 

Recommended for older children and adults, although advanced young children can benefit immensely from this puzzle too.
