You play as a kangaroo. Your goal: move from one space to the next, without falling off the edge! Every time you move, the square you are on moves as well. As the block you are on is reoriented, you may find that your paths become more limited. If you can make it to the square with a ladder on it, you can reach the next level.
When you step on the blocks from either side, the block can twist 90 or 180 degrees left or right, depending on what color the block is. Finding the correct path through the various blocks is tricky, but also really fun. This is the rare puzzle game that strikes the perfect balance between fun and frustration.
Controlling your kangaroo is really simple. Navigating your path towards the ladder block is just a matter of swiping in the direction you want to travel. This puzzle game is very simple, but maddeningly addictive.
The latest version of Twisted Ways (Version 1.1) includes some bug fixes, plus an adjustment that made each tile somewhat bigger. This makes the game easier on the eyes…literally. Increasing the tile size will reduce eye strain and makes the game more pleasurable.
