The tip of the finger is used to move, rotate, and flip the puzzle pieces to complete a wide variety of silhouettes. Each silhouette must be completed within a set time limit. If the silhouette is not completed within the allotted amount of time, the pieces are scattered and the player must start again. The time limits change with the level of difficulty. The levels can be set at will before, or at any time during play. The game is comprised of five different puzzles with several silhouettes each, totaling more than 40 problems to be solved at each level.
