Welcome to Khufu's Delivery Service!
At KDS your job is to sort the incoming cut stone from the quarry for sending to the builders at Giza. Efficiency is the goal, sending a full load means less time wasted counting on the other end and a quicker turnaround for that team for you.
Oh, and the builders also offer a bonus for color-matching boards of any size, as it helps them utilize the stone quicker.
Keep the process flowing and everyone stays happy, got it?
Khufu's Delivery Service is an arcade puzzle game that challenges your skill and speed to maximize space with different shaped pieces. There are currently 4 planned game modes: Standard, Time-Attack, Pyramid, and Puzzle. Each focuses on a different gameplay aspect to provide a variety ways to have fun!
Drag and drop the pieces from the conveyor onto the open boards. Try to fill each one as much as possible, once they are at least half-full they can be 'sent' (the button below each box) away. The more full the board the more points its worth, plus a faster respawn time. Sending a board comprised of all the same color also receives a points bonus. Time-attack and Pyramid modes are different variations of this, with the time-attack mode focusing on speed and the pyramid mode focusing on maximum effieciency. Puzzle mode is more like traditional tangrams, use the pieces provided to fill in each puzzle.
