This puzzle comes with plastic building-block pieces and a booklet of puzzles. A puzzle is a straight orthographic view of some structure you're supposed to build; the easy puzzles just give a front view, while later difficulty levels add a right view and a top view. From these views and a set of pieces, you're supposed to build the appropriate structure.
Being one of the two building-block puzzle games submitted this year, this one has significant better and more cerebral puzzles -- the blocks are simple enough to understand, but have shapes that are just tricky enough to make the complex challenges worth thinking about. Every challenge is grid-aligned which means there are rarely any issues with ambiguity of positions or pieces. Perhaps the only drawback is that the pieces are made in this garish orange color, but at least the plastic is of sturdy quality.
