From the creator (Hugo Smits) of DSi-Ware award winning games 'Flipper', 'Ace Mathician' and 'Color Commando' comes an all new puzzle game for 3DS e-shop!

Solve pixel art puzzles by making numbered blocks extend into lines. Sounds easy? wait until you find out these lines keep running unless they hit something! Be smart and use other blocks and lines to stop the line at the correct lenght.

Gameboy had Tetris, Nintendo DS had Picross. Now 3DS players get their puzzle craze called Tappingo!

Basic gameplay rules:
  • Numbered blocks need to be extended into lines.
  • The number on the block hints to the correct line lenght.
  • Lines will not stop extending until they hit another block, line or edge of the screen.
  • When all numbered blocks show the 'OK' sign the puzzle is solved.

Gameplay example:



 

  • The yellow block needs to be extended into a line of 1 tile long.
  • The blue block needs to be extended into a line of 2 tiles long.








 

  • Tap the the blue block and drag it left.
  • The blue block will extend into a line.
  • It keeps extending until it hits the gray block.

  • Instead of 2 tiles, the blue line is 3 tiles long. 1 tile too long.

  • Tap the blue block again to retract...




 

  • Tap the the yellow block and drag it down.
  • The yellow block will extend into a line.
  • It keeps extending until it hits the gray block.

  • The yellow line stops at 1 tile long. The correct lenght!

  • The 'OK' sign is shown on the yellow block.




 

  • Tap the the blue block and drag it left.
  • The blue will extend into a line.
  • It keeps extending until it hits the yellow line.
