Noir Shapes is a remake of the Xbox 360 Indie game Cool Shapes. It's a polyominoes puzzle game where the player has to fit a number of shapes within a frame of a certain size. With the use of a cursor the player can pick up and move the shapes individually and place them in the right spot of the frame. To complete a level all pieces has to be correctly arranged with no overlapping before the time is out. Each level has a four digit code that can be entered at the main menu to get direct access to that level. The game has a total of 60 levels which is twelve more than the original game. The Xbox 360's avatars have been replaced with an animated image of Clive Sinclair.

Noir Shapes is a rare example of a remake appearing before the game is based on. The original Xbox 360 game Cool Shapes was released in December 2012, more than a month after the remake.
