Polyominoes is really four games in one.
- In GAME mode, you have a very interesting strategy game in which you try to put the last piece on the board. You can use any of the 100 different boards, or create your own boards!
- In CHALLENGE mode, you're provided with a position from the game mode in which you're challenged to find the winning move (and one always exists, no matter how hard it is for you to find it!). It's similar to chess mate-in-x puzzles.
- In JIGSAW PUZZLE mode, you can try to place all the pieces on any of the boards. providing countless hours of jigsaw puzzle fun.
- In SPANNING PUZZLE mode, you try to "span" the board with the fewest number of pieces. The program keeps track of all of your best efforts.
