Gameplay (would be 5 if the story was better or not included and it didn't freeze when first installed)

There are in-app purchases for the Android version but I couldn’t get them to work. I did read that originally this game would only allow the first 3-4 levels to be played. Now the game has video ads to keep it free in the Google Play Store. This game is also available in the Amazon Underground App store so in-app purchases are free and the entire game is unlocked.
This week Perfect Angle became my game of the week. I installed it on my Lenovo a2109 Tegra 3 tablet (which has handled everything I’ve thrown at it like Nova and GTA) and on the Amazon Fire 7 (2015). Check out what I thought of it.

Installation of this game can take awhile because it is over 200mb. Make sure you download it over wifi. Once it is installed you are greeted with a screen similar to the logo opener of the trailer posted above. Like my last Android gaming review, I really like this logo. The logo incorporates the gameplay and game studio logo to make an attractive and memorable piece of art. Slide your finger to start the game and the word angle becomes aligned as you are launched into the game (hopefully). My initial installation of Perfect Angle failed miserably on my Tegra 3 1.3 Ghz tablet. When it did load it froze the tablet numerous times. When it worked it was beautiful and exciting.
***Installing Perfect Angle Zen Edition VR solved my issues of the tablet freezing the game ran flawlessly, at the sacrifice of not being able to get story mode.***
Take two. I deleted the version I downloaded from the Google Play Store and downloaded it via the Amazon App Store for Android. I was elated to find out that Perfect Angle is an Underground App so not only is the game free, but you get the whole game and in-app purchases are free. This game the game ran perfectly in story mode and without story mode. I’m still not sure what exactly is an in-app purchase in the game, so if you figure it out leave a message in the comments letting me know.
The game play here is really simple. Rotate the camera until you get the picture, after that a full color version of the picture appears or you get an animation. Simple enough. More fun if you don’t use you’re device’s touch screen and let the gyroscope guide your path as you rotate your device. The game looks great, but what in the world is going on with this story. I understand that you are trying to help the main character unlock his memory through the puzzles, and sometimes to solve the puzzle you need to take a look at other objects in the background for clues, but really WHAT THE HECK IS THE STORY HERE!
Enjoy some of the narration heard during the game:
“My memories filter through the empty spaces of my brain, and I am able to move through the images of my memories thanks to the objects that have appeared.”
“Alice feels my pain and takes my hand. This is our heaven, never forget that. How can this abject place be our heaven? What is happening to me?”
“Is this perchance some kind of perverse penitence for my sins?”
My suggestion is to turn off story mode and solve some puzzles or install Perfect Angle Zen Edition VR (no story at all, just puzzles and achievements). The puzzles are beautiful and make sense on their own without any need for a story. This really is the type of game that needs a story anyway. A good puzzle game that has different gameplay it is an excellent example of modern contemporary art can take you places without poor writing.
Poor story aside this puzzle is extremely good (as a puzzler). It’s great for down times when you want to relax. Perfect Angle is also good from an educational standpoint as a puzzle game that gets kids to think outside of 2d shapes and make them see pictures as 3d objects. Having to look around the background for clues to the puzzle is also good for practicing paying attention to details.
