About The Lost Shapes
Prepare for a brain tease with the art of Magic Chess, a game which revives the power of ancient shapes, sun, moon, and stars, and is all the rage among magical folk! Follow your teacher Willow, a wizard with a mysterious past, as he trains you to create shapes within a limited amount of time with decorated tiles that can be lined up to form shapes and patterns in Shape Mode and Survival Mode. In Shape Mode Willow will take you through 30 missions of building simple shapes and then advancing to intricate patterns. Survival Mode tasks players with creating as many of those shapes and patterns as possible to level up endlessly. All shape building must be done as quickly as possible to keep the score multiplier high and the tile queue open. If the tile queue gets full, it’s game over!
Just when players think they have their hand on Magic Chess, the game will display its an even wider variety of tiles. Bomb tiles blow away obstacles on the board so nothing stands in the way of making a shape. Snowflake tiles freeze the tile queue to buy time. Nuke tiles clear the board when it gets too full. Locked tiles can’t be moved once they are placed. And numbered tiles can be used more than once.
The game is localized in English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Japanese so more iOS wizards have the chance to become a Magic Chess champion.
