You’ll probably start to use a means-end analysis once your brain gets familiar with how the game works. This involves examining the differences between the current state (the pattern you’re making) and the goal state (the pattern you’re copying), in effect working out the puzzle as you go along.
Each time you add a stencil, the current pattern builds nearer to the goal pattern until the two patterns match and your goal is achieved. This process requires continual internal feedback. You can work forwards and backwards until the problem is solved.
Ravioli’s gameplay facilitates means-end analysis as a problem-solving strategy.
