Summary: This game is exactly what I hoped it would be. (I had previously played a no-name version of this game) There is a story line in the beginning, but I doesn't interrupt the gameplay. I love the challenge of fitting the proper pieces in order to build the pipeline within the allotted time. If you enjoy problem solving, this is definitely a fun game to play to kill time.
Summary: I'm not big on games but this game is totally addicting. It's a wild and crazy game! At first I had a hard time figuring it out but once I caught on it became exciting to play each new game. WOW!!! Who knew that these games could be so much fun. I play with this more then my kids do. It's great for all ages but I would recommend this more so for an older child since you need to have great eye-hand coordination.
Summary: This is for me a keeper. I do not keep many DS games but this has been played now for many many hours and is 33% complete but will be played again and again. If you like puzzle and strategy then you should think highly of this. Just to highlight to any readers it may be of interest to know I rate the following games highly. Polarium (DS & GBA version), Zoo keeper, Soul bubbles, Mariokart (GBA & DS & SNES) Tetris (Game boy).
Summary: I bought this for my 10 year old, to have as something new at an airport to keep him occupied during the waiting aroud. He was hooked almost straight away, and is still playing as a favourite game a few weeks later!
