Summary: I really enjoyed the game, but it was way too short. Some of the puzzles were quite hard and you can't go on until you have solved them so it did lead to being stuck a few times. Once you finish the game you won't play it again.
Summary: This was a fun game, but I found it too easy. I easily solved all the puzzles to get either a gold star (less than 30 seconds) or Silver star (less than 1 minute). There were only 100 puzzles to solve, so I was done with this game in about 2-3 days.
Summary: this is one of the most frustrating games i've ever had the displeasure to play. if you cannot get the puzzle, that's it. you cannot advance, you cannot get "hints", you're just stuck. the initial puzzles are simple, without being too simple. once you hit one you cannot solve, that's the end of the play. you cannot use the free play option since they only give you the choice of puzzles already solved. wouldn't recommend this game to anyone.
Summary: If I have to look at my kids playing DS, I am happy to see them playing this game. I bought this originally for my 6 year old and consistently find my 8 and 9 year olds playing it as well. They hate to pull themselves away from Mario, but I am glad when they do and entertain their brains as well. I would definitely recommend this game for fun and educational purposes.
Summary: Ever since I got the ds game, 100 All-Time Favorites...which I love, one of the 100 games is like this one, tho there are only 24 in it. I guess it is a part of my brain I do not work much, but it is fun for me.
