In the end, The Lost Shapes provides a solid, competent puzzle game experience. It doesn't quite have the addictiveness of a Tetris, but still provides a good bit of fun that should satisfy any fan of puzzle games.
The Lost Shapes should probably have spent some more time in play testing to fully flush out the concept and tune the play balance. As it is, the game starts out far too easy and then rapidly transitions to much too hard.
