Congruent or Not Congruent?

Congruent……what a strange word! All it means is that objects are the same size and same shape. Try your hand at finding the shape that is NOT congruent with all the others in the Spaceman Game below. Click on the picture and then find the ONE spaceman that is different from the others. That one is NOT congruent with the others.

If you are successful in all 15 levels, the spaceman will return to earth.  Good luck!
