Doodle Fit (A Spatial Thinking Game) by Gamelion Studios (\$1.99)

Quote:
 Product Description Doodle Fit is a spatial skills game in which you need to fit a set of blocks into a given shape. Select and move blocks of varying shapes and sizes into position in search of the layout that covers the whole shape. A level is complete when all blocks have been used and there is no more empty space in the shape. Some puzzles have more than one solution, and some only have one. There is a Beginner's Pack to help you get started, but if you need a hint you can get one. Use your hints wisely; you earn one hint for every two solutions you find, and you may need to stock up on hints for the more difficult puzzles. There are over 250 puzzles in nine themed puzzle packs like Winter Pack and Nature Pack. Each of the puzzles has a creative shape such as 'Old Ship', 'Alien', and 'Fox'. The more difficult puzzle packs are unlocked when all the puzzles in the previous pack are solved. If you liked Tangrams or Tetris, you'll certainly love Doodle Fit!
