Difficult puzzles..love it!

  • Summary: This is possibly my favorite game so far. My only disappointment is that I finished it too soon. It took me 3 evenings to complete, but didn't want to put it down. Like some other reviewers, I LOVED the puzzles being difficult without clear directions. You have to figure out what the goal is, how the machine works, and then do it. I would definitely buy another game like this one!

I actually LIKE what some other reviewers hated, i.e. no directions!

  • Summary: It's interesting to see that some reviewers were frustrated with this game because there were no instructions to tell them how to proceed. For me, that is what I liked best about it. In some ways, it reminded me of Myst, which was a game that I loved on the computer (I've heard there is a DS version of Myst too but that it is too tiny to be really workable on the DS).

Great Puzzler Game

K. Groh, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is not for the newbie at puzzle cracking. The game plays with no instructions, just intuition. The game starts with you inside a mansion. Only the rooms you've gained access to are visible on a map but as you open more puzzles and safes and therefore open more doors and more rooms show on the map. There are three levels to the mansion: the first floor, the cellar, the upper floor and the loft.

Satifisying puzzles, clumsy navigation

Poppets, Amazon
16 October 2010
  • Summary: Having read the other reviews, I hesitated in my purchase of this game. However, I am very pleasantly surprised. True, there are no directions but it's been a long time since I've had the satisfaction of truly solving a puzzle -- figuring out what to do and then how to do it. A couple of them were somewhat annoying in that I eventually reverted to just pushing buttons until I stumbled on the right combination.

A poorly designed game

Norman Cook, Amazon
6 October 2010
  • Summary: I love codes and puzzles, but this game is not fun. There are no instructions for anything and navigating through the house is frustrating at best. If you're looking for a challenging, yet very fun, puzzle game, check out any of the Professor Layton titles. Those are the gold standard for this type of game.

great puzzle game

  • Summary: This was one of the better DS games that I have played. I love solving puzzles, and it was a challenge. There are no instructions with any of the safes - you have to use your powers of observation to figure what to do for each one. This can be a bit frustrating, but usually when you figure it out, it's pretty obvious :) I liked the puzzles without numbers the best, as they were more fun to figure out how to work them.

Outstanding Puzzle Game!

Michael A. Timofeev, Amazon
7 April 2010
  • Summary: Don't listen to the other people who said they didn't know what to do or couldn't figure out the puzzles. Giving the game a bad review because you couldn't solve the puzzles is dumb. If you don't like difficult or having to think for yourself, go get some crayons and a coloring book. It's not an easy game. The puzzles are unique and will keep you occupied for a while...how long depends on how much work you put into it and how much you use your intuition and common sense.

It's all about the puzzles

James J., Amazon
28 March 2010
  • Summary: This game doesn't have hidden object puzzles and has very few inventory puzzles. What it does have is a lot of brain-teaser, math, and logic puzzles. The presentation is professional. The plot is brief, but provides a nice background to the puzzles. If you are like me and just want challenging puzzles in your puzzle games without all the added fluff, then this game is for you.

Safecracker DS, It's a thinker

Reid Choate, Amazon
21 March 2010
  • Summary: I like games that make me think, and this one fits. Some of the clues a subtle, like worn keys on a key pad that show what numbers have been pushed most. So you need to observe and think, very Sherlock Holmes. I have been stumped on some of the safes, so I move on and come back later. That still failing, I wish there was a good hint sourse. Most clues online are for the PC version, that has some differences. All things considered, it's an great game.

this game stinks

mooma gooma, Amazon

  • Summary: I LOVE puzzle games, but cannot even get to the puzzles in this one. Like the others, I have no idea what I am supposed to do with the circles or the number thing. this game is no fun at all. i am glad I got is for $15 at Walmart, though it is not worth 15 cents. Maye the creators will read this and send us all directions. Do NOT buy this game.
