Summary: This is a great game for keeping one's mind active. It is not so difficult as to be frustrating or so simple, that it becomes boring. I love to do the Quick Cross & Word Roundup puzzles. I find the Up & Down Words difficult. I am afraid that the Hidato is over my mental capacity.
Summary: This game has enough variety to keep you playing for a long time. The kind of game that's good to play anywhere, from a waiting room to when you are just relaxing. Not so easy that you'll get bored, not so hard that you'll get frustrated.
Summary: "Chain Reaction" from the GSN Cable Channel, is a favorite of mine. I have looked for applications for this game and there are none. In this set from USA Today for the Nintendo DS, "Puzzle Craze", I found one that is very similar called "Up and Down Words".
Summary: I'm glad I bought this game. A good varity of puzzles. Before buying it I worried because it had Hidato and I didn't know how to play it but the instructions in this game are perfect and I have even been able to master that game as well as the others. I enjoy the challenge of all the games .
