Summary: My grandson has this game, after watching him a while he let me try it. I very quickly got addicted to it and wanted to get my own. Since the game is not longer in production, it was hard to find. When I found in on Amazon, and at a good price, I quickly snapped it up. Some of the puzzles are simple, and others are far more challenging. I have since finished all of the puzzles, and then did them all again. I have let others play it, and they have become addicted also.
Summary: i love a good puzzle game and can stand a bad one. this game, however, almost over-uses the ds touch screen. the controls are difficult and the more challenging puzzles are not as challenging as you would like, especially when compared to the early puzzles. overall, i am very disappointed.
Summary: If you liked Layton, you'll like this. My main gripes are with the controls, and with how short it is! Control Problems: If you're left-handed well...just find a right hander to actually do the work. Even if you are right handed, the controls are pretty poorly laid out. To start the ball rolling you press A, but if you've got the stylus in your hand, that means using your pinky or trying to nudge it with the edge of a finger.
Summary: The basic idea of this game is familiar (The Incredible Machine), but the goals quickly become repetitious and the physics itself somewhat finicky. The touchscreen controls were also somewhat frustrating.
Summary: This is a challenging game, and it took me some time to realize that you didn't necessarily need to use all of the items that were available. The objective of each level is the same, to get one of the items to hit the button. The challenge, of course, is to figure out how exactly to do that, with increasingly difficult paths presented to reach said button. I'm currently stuck at level 36 (don't be snooty, you whiz kids!
Summary: I picked up this game recently thinking it would be like a more developed version of a fun web-based game, like the excellent N+. This was not the case. I played for one day, finished about 30 levels and felt unfulfilled. The controls are simple, yet caused a lot of frustration. You tap the touch screen with the stylus to bring up the object palette, then select an item to place it in the level. You can then grab and drag the piece to put it where you need.
