  • Summary: Extremely fun puzzle game. In basic it's much like the old and simple 'plumber' games. But it's the additions that make the game difficult and fun. Also worth to mention is that 'The Jetsons' look & feel of the whole game.

  • Summary: The worse thing is not that the game is bad and boring but that developers are sure this is a wonderful and funny game.

  • Summary: This game is "Pipes" with a lot of time pressure and enemy dodging. Nothing more, nothing less. Injecting story and polish into the sort of game one might be tasked to put together as computer science midterm project is not enough to redeem the unoriginal concept and frustrating control scheme.

  • Summary: This game is bad, really bad. The controls are a pain, the gameplay is boring, there is no fun no real puzzle, it's pasted on with cheap angry inducing mechanics. There are much better puzzle games out there, much better timing games out there.

  • Summary: Amazing music, nice theme but the game isn't anything new really. It's the classic pipes game with a few twists. After a while I got annoyed and dropped it. But this music. Wow... And the polishing....

  • Summary: A simple puzzle game bloated with painful controls and an arbitrary story line. Adding "action" to a puzzle game so often just makes it frustrating, and that's certainly the case with A Virus Named TOM. It's just the old "Pipes" game annoying.

  • Summary: Tom is the amazing mix of puzzle and frantic action. Every new infection requires a different way of thinking about it. Truly one of the "Not-to-miss" Indie games available. Love how 90% of Indie games are light-years better than the big budget Dev-Houses.

  • Summary: I thought this game looked boring. Then I played it and it is so much fun! My wife & I can't stop playing the co-op. We've battled our way through every puzzle, but we re-play the levels for fun or for a better score. We can't help it!

  • Summary: This game has a great collection of puzzles that are simple to understand, but hard to solve. It has a fast-paced nature that I have yet to see in many puzzle games, which was a pleasant surprise. Overall, if you're into classic arcade games and modern puzzlers, you'll enjoy it.

  • Summary: Tom is the perfect blend of action and puzzler, creating a game that remains varied and exciting throughout it's play. Each 'world' introduces a new component that can drastically change the type of challenge presented by the level - from basic puzzler to a race against the clock and enemy drones -...
