Summary: My son loved this. This reminds me of the old "The Incredible Machine (TIM)" computer game available on DOS/Windows. I recommend this for someone looking for a fun and some brain twisting for his kid.
Summary: In my rich inner life, I am an architect - my son is 8 and I am convinced that he will grow up to be an engineer...... we love this game. It's not flashy or fast paced - but it is BRILLANT and it nurtures creativity and problem solving. If you have a child who is a thinker and who loves to imagine solutions, this is well worth buying.
Summary: I wrote a previous review & it wasn't posted. I'm glad. My first review rated this game as horrible. I was having a hard time understanding any of it to be honest. I decided to sit down alone with it & within about 15 minutes I had mastered the ways to move & what was expected of the puzzles. It's not a simple game. I taught my 7 year old how to play it.
Summary: My son is 8 and really loves this game. I've not played it so my comments are based on second-hand observation but it seems like this game is a engaging and original. There are a series of engineering/physics type puzzles and the environments in which these challenges occur can be modified by the player (animals, various colors and patterns, etc).
Summary: I bought this for my son who is 13. I hate video games, but I tried it and loved it. It is addictive. My husband nd son fight over it. You get different tasks and different tools to complete tasks. You can be very creative when trying to complete diferent levels.
Amazing! I've never played a game like this before

Summary: We have had this game for about a month. It is being played by me (I'm 41) and my two daughters, ages 8 and 10. We all love it! That being said, I can understand why some people hate this game. It is critically important that you go through the tutorial at the beginning. In fact, I went through it twice, since I didn't quite "get it" the first time through. But, once I got it, wow! There are almost endless ways to solve each puzzle.
Summary: I haven't been able to play this game as much as I would have liked but for the few times I was able to I really enjoyed it. I took it to babysit with me the day I got it and at first the kids thought it would be stupid but then they were begging me to leave it with them and wanted to keep playing. There is a tutorial that I STRONGLY suggest paying attention to or else it may be hard to figure out what you are doing.
