3D Twist & Match challenges the player to twist and rotate 3D polygonal objects in such a way that they match the silhouette that is placed behind them.
The game has three different game modes. In Classic Mode, players are continually given objects to match with their silhouettes while a timer is constantly draining. Depending how fast a player matches an object to its silhouette the more time will be added back to their timer. Rush Mode plays the same as Classic Mode, except now the timer drains more quickly, but refills completely after every match. In these modes, matching objects in as few moves as possible will cause objects to become unlocked. These unlocked objects then become made available in Practice Mode. Practice Mode is a mode which lets the player choose an object to practice with, with no time pressure at all. The game contains 200 different objects to match.
