Summary: I actually like the graphics better on the first one, but this one has different bonus tools. Just as addictive as the first one though. I have two boys and with the DSi XL I just got for my 42nd birthday (not what I ever thought I would ask for!!) we now have three players and three puzzle games (Jewel Master Egypt - also very good). Maybe I'll actually get to play once in awhile without one of them getting interested and taking it away from me!!
Summary: I liked this game but once you get to the end you can't play it again. The hidden puzzle were sometimes too hard so I gave up instead of doing it over and over. I enjoyed the game but unlike Cradle of Rome I can't play it over and over.
Summary: This is as addictive as the Web version, only this fits into my pocket, the levels are pretty easy at first but then obviously they become harder. Pretty good info pack included, how to create more points and when to use the tools.
