DOP Puzzle: Displace One Part is a casual puzzle game that requires a player to use logic and practical strategies to complete tasks across 60 levels. Every level of the game displays an animated, interactive image that represents a short story meant to give the player a chuckle. The player receives one or more objects under the image that they might use to complete the story, as indicated by text above the image.
The player can expect challenging, complex gameplay with each brain-teaser-style puzzle. They might use all objects or combine objects below the image before using them in the story. They might not use any of the objects and find the solution in the image. In some cases, they must interact with the image to move things within it before they can use any applicable objects.
The tasks and stories in DOP Puzzle: Displace One Part vary greatly from level to level. For example, the player might need to help a cat dress up as an alien astronaut or a wizard. They might need to place objects in a scene and then scratch out or draw something with a pen. If they can't determine the best course of action, they can use a hint button marked with a yellow light bulb to show them the next step.
