Flippant! A Tile-flipping Puzzle Game
Flippant is a tile-flipping puzzle game. Simple to play, challenging to
It's a new twist on the old "15-puzzle" (invented 1874!), where square tiles
are slid into an empty space to put them in order, but here the tiles are
flipped over their edges, so they can end up upside-down and rotated.
Tiles also come in different shapes. Most people find even the smallest board
very hard to solve, with just 3 hexagonal tiles and one gap!
Easy to play, hard to solve
8 different tile shapes to choose from (squares, hexagons,
triangles, kites etc)
4 different board sizes for each tile shape
Gives a total of 32 boards
Choose from a selection of provided images
Load your own images
Even use the live camera feed. Solve your own face!
Number of moves and time taken are displayed, with best moves/time
Minimal sound, can be turned off in the settings
How to play
Hit the play button to shuffle the tiles
Tap on a tile to flip it into the empty space (must be next to the space)
Try to put the image back together
Select a board from the list, or swipe on the background. Swipe sideways
to change the tile shape. Swipe up and down to change the number of tiles
Upside-down tiles are greyed out so you can tell which way up they are
If you tap on a tile that can't move, the valid tiles are highlighted
with a radar blip
When you get a tile in the right spot, and the right way around, it
bounces along with all other correct tiles
Tap in the empty space to bounce the tile that belongs there. Helps to
figure out what goes where
Turn your device to better match portrait or landscape pictures
To play faster, swipe from tile to tile. Don't swipe the tile
into the gap. Swipe away from the gap to the next tile to be flipped

Google Play store to download Flippant for Android (other platforms may
