Shatter – A New 3D Puzzle for Android
Are you an avid puzzle solver? Do you like to play with things like Rubik’s Cubes and such? If your mind is able to solve problems in a three dimensional form, then you will love this app. XDA member appforce.org has created a new concept in 3D puzzles and called it Shatter for Android devices. The objective as with any puzzle is to put the pieces in the right configuration to form an image. However, the twist is that the picture is placed as an exploded view of pixels in a 3D environment that you can manipulate. The puzzle is rotated until you can successfully match it to the picture shown to you. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, you only have 20 seconds to figure out the puzzle.
Shatter is a unique puzzle to test your 3D orientation skills. Try to figure out the correct rotation of the shattered image in 20 seconds! If you fail to solve in 20 sec, your score is reset. You can enable lighting and box outlines on faster hardware.
You can find more information in the app thread.
