What does the phrase "shape up" mean in the following sentence from the description (not available online) of the game "Griddie Islands"

Help these tropical getaways shape up.

Here is a description of the game from a different source:

Griddie Islands is a classic puzzle game with arcade elements, in which you need to make a small island with different geometric shapes, gradually increasing their level and earning more money. (Apk Vision)


It's a pun: to shape up means to behave yourself. Parents tell kids: You need to shape up. Or bosses tell lazy employees that.

So, you have to make the "shapes behave". Put them into some kind of order.
