In Shape Ships overview and planning are key to succeed in the game. The goal of the game is to solve as many rounds as possible in the time you have available. To get through a round, all of the spaceships must go to the shape that fits their shape and be the same color. Use a spaceship with the same colour as the gate light up in to open the gate. There can only be two gates open at one time, so when a gate is opened on one side, it closes on the opposite side. The clock is stopped every time a round is started, so use the time to plan before starting the time on the play button.
