About Placement Games

Placement games have been around since near the dawn of browser games. Players must figure out where to put all of the pieces that they are given. Placement games come in all different shapes and sizes, from car games, to puzzle games, to platformer games. Read on to learn about some of the most frequently asked questions.

What is a placement game?

A placement game is a game where players must find room for each of their pieces within a limited space. This can be done in a multitude of different ways. For example, in the game Parking Tight, the whole goal of the game is to find room for every single car to park in. You will need to use your logic and spacial reasoning skills in order to succeed at getting every car parked into the small parking lot that you are forced to use. 

Are all placement games the same?

While it may seem like these placement games are all pretty much the exact same game at first, there is a surprising amount of diversity. For example, players can use their knowledge of shapes to help them stack piles of polygons in Geometry Tower. This requires a good understanding of organization and center of balance in order to be successful.

On the other hand, fans who are interested in security can play Protect the Museum. This game requires you to place lasers in order to keep the museum that is full of precious artifacts safe. While this game also requires clever placement, it is a totally different objective and style of gameplay in comparison to Geometry Tower.
