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: I really enjoy puzzle games that allow time to think through different solutions to the puzzle... there is no clock ticking down on this game, one can experiment with many different approaches until the puzzle is solved. The concept is simple, just arrange the supplied parts to route the ball (or other parts) to strike the target. Hints are provided if needed.
Summary: I bought this game for Nintendo DS Lite knowing nothing about it, but I'm glad I took a chance on it. The basic objective is to place certain tools or obstacles in such a way that with the help of a rolling ball, a button is pushed at the end of a maze or obstacle course. It's a bit of a cross between the old "Mousetrap" game that a lot of Gen-X'ers had as kids, and Tetris in my opinion.
