This game started with no explanations. There were no instructions on how to play the game, the timer, or anything. It took awhile just to figure out how to turn or reverse each piece to be placed in the puzzle frame. And you only have 30 seconds to complete each puzzle box, or you lose. I got better at it as I became more familiar with the controls, but even if you win, the game really doesn't go anywhere. It's a plain simple setup with minimal animation of any kind. I'm not sure even kids would like it.

This is a very different game. It combines a puzzle aspect with a logic aspect. It is very fast paced with a little bit of a story along with it. I played it until the end and was kind of disapointed with the ending. It would have been nice to see a reuinification with the boy's village after he saves them. From beginging to end it takes less than two hours, but if you enjoy it, it is very replayable. The graphics are very simpilistic. My 4 year old granddaughter really likes it, but cannot get past the half way point.

Since I enjoy puzzle games, I decided I would try out this game - bad idea! This game is very bland, you play 9 rounds per character of a puzzle, fitting shaped pieces into a larger shape. The difficulty seems to have no order. Some puzzles were extremely challenging, while others were extremely easy. There were no instructions for the controls, which made it harder at first. The game itself is to collect gems, while doing the puzzle, and to get more gems then the computer player. This task is repeated with multiple characters. It's quite tedious. The graphics aren't very well either, and I skipped most of the dialogue because I didn't like the graphics. Simply, this game is tedious, and becomes boring quite quickly. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, not even a kid.
