A puzzle game with a teaching touch

Jim He, a multifaceted developer, released a series of classical puzzle games with original themes like this, about medical imagery.

This app comes with five different images and three difficulty levels, working as any other puzzle game. The main addition is a little button at the leftmost bottom that adds a little bit of info about the image we're trying to compose, thus adding a teaching element to such a simple game. It might not be enough, but it's appreciated.

If you like it, don't miss other puzzle games from this same developer, they all work more or less in the same way.

Developer's original description available here
This little app is used to play medical image puzzle game. In the game, ten typical images of Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are selected for the puzzle. It includes, brain, ankle, wrist, knee and spine in different orientations.

In this app, three puzzle levels can be selected. In level 1, the painting is randomly split into 9 grids in 3 by 3 format. In level 2, the format is 4 by 4 and in level 3 it is 5 by 5.

User needs to touch two images on screen to swap them to the right positions. For example, if user touches image A, next, he/she touches the second image B. Then, the positions of image A and B will be exchanged. If all the image parts are correctly re-positioned, then, a message will be present to remind user that the current job is completed successfully. Then, user can go to next or previous page.

There is also a small image at the bottom left side of the screen for users’ reference. If user has some interests in knowing about the current medical image, he/she can press a button at the bottom side of the screen to check the its information.

In the course of playing, it not only makes users get puzzle funs, but also acquire the knowledge on MRI images. So, don’t hesitate to try it on your android smart phone.

Note:
MRI is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to visualize detailed internal structures. It provides good contrast between the different soft tissues of the body, which makes it especially useful in imaging the brain, muscles, the heart, and cancers compared with other medical imaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) or X-rays.

    I love it. I just wish there were more puzzles. There are four I think. They get old after a while but at first it's fun. I still won't delete it. I go on when my other medical apps get boring for me.
