Thanks flotsam and Jenny. I tried the demo of this game a long time back and I know it would be too hard for me, along with the fact it gave me motion sickness, so I refrained from buying it even though they have had some good sales on it at times.

I completed the main part of the game (not bothering with gold stars and such) a few years ago and really enjoyed solving the main puzzles. The tetris puzzles are sometimes too hard (and boring) though and the end game is very hard and frustrating. But overall very good.

I am so tempted to get this for my iPad, but the 'actiony bits' really put me off. Every review I have read mentions them, so I am sure they are an integral part of the game.

The only bits that I consider to be actiony are some frustrating timed puzzles in the endgame sequence. Gamecontrollerthrowing frustrating for me.:) Everything else is pure puzzling, albeit sometimes with the objective to shut down or trap things that can kill you.

I haven't got to the end yet but would agree with frazap's summation. And there are many rooms where no lethal things are present.


Quantity has a quality all of its own
