Madagascar 3: Swing and Set is a colorful picture puzzle and tile re-arranging game for kids where you have to correctly reorder a jumbled-up grid of tiles to form a picture of the hilarious characters from the Madagascar movies. These cute safari animals are always getting into funny situations, and it’s up to you to reveal the comical pictures. You have to rotate each of the tiles into its correct position in order to solve each puzzle, piece by piece. It isn’t quite as easy as it sounds, as some of the tiles look quite similar, so it can be tricky to figure out the correct way to arrange them.
Your observation skills are the key to success here. You need an Eagle Eye to notice the intricate differences between the tiles so you can arrange them properly. You also need a good memory, as you are shown a completed version of the picture to study. Ready to give this fun brain-teaser a try? Happy problem solving, and Good Luck!
How to Play: In each of the three levels, you are shown a grid of 35 tiles. The tiles have been jumbled around and it’s up to you to rotate them back into the correct position. Use your computer mouse or touchpad to rotate the tiles. Left Click on any one of them to rotate it 90 degrees. Once you think the tile is correctly positioned, move onto the next one. Keep rotating the tiles, and you’ll see the picture developing in front of you. The easiest tiles to rearrange are in the center of the screen where the characters’ faces can be pinpointed. The more difficult ones are around the outside of the grid where there is just a skyline or grey outline.
Although there is no time limit, there is a clock ticking along the bottom of the game screen for you to time your activity if you wish. If you get stuck, there is a ‘Hint’ icon beside the clock. Left Click and hold down this button to reveal the completed picture. Study this carefully and release the click when you are ready. This will give you a better understanding of which tiles are still incorrectly positioned. You can use the Hint feature as many times as you like. You just have to wait until its status bar refills.
