The shortcuts game tests your spatial reasoning skills and mathematics skills through a very specific type of puzzle game.
The objective is to move a marble from a start point to an end point in the shortest number of moves possible. Each puzzle may consist of the following additional challenges.
1. Obstacle marbles to move out of the way (moving these also accrues movement points) and
2. Reward objectives which are points on the map that are off the shortest path but reward you by subtracting some of your ‘distance’ allowing you to get a better score.
