Graduates of Busy Shapes (CTR March 2014) http://reviews.childrenstech.com/ctr/review.php?id=17631) now have 100 additional puzzles to solve, with this second edition.

This time the puzzles are presented on 3D sliding platforms that move in front of or in back of one another. There are also trap doors, time bombs and switches that require some logical thinking, plus trial and error, in order to solve.

As with the first Busy Shapes, you can easily reset a level, with no penalties

The graphics don't have the polished look of the first Busy Shapes app, and it isn't possible for children to jump around between levels.

The puzzles are themed, featuring four worlds and the app uses multi-touch, so that children can work cooperatively on the levels.
