4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Puzzle Game!, January 4, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Puzzler World - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
I'm a "senior" (over 65) and I bought this game because it looked like something I would enjoy, since I love doing puzzles. I was not disappointed, for the most part. In the beginning levels (I'm only at the 65th puzzle out of a total 560), some of the puzzles (especially the Bonus ones) seem a little too easy, e.g., Equate, Hangman, Anagrams, Wordsearch, but from some of the other reviews, I see the puzzles will get more difficult as I get to the higher ones. After each puzzle is complete, you get to pick a prize - which is usually 5 hint tokens, 10 hint tokens or a letter for the word PUZZLER. Once you get all 7 letters, you get 100 hint tokens as a prize. You can use these hints in increments of 5, 10 or 20, when you get stumped and need a little help. Currently, I have over 600 hint tokens accumulated, so you can see the puzzles haven't been too difficult and I haven't needed to use many!

My favorite puzzle is Link-a-Pix. It's a little confusing at first, but doesn't take too long to figure out. My daughter, son-in-law and grandkids have all taken my Nintento away from me to do this particular type of puzzle! It is everyone's favorite. One reviewer said there is no replay value once you've completed a puzzle, but that's not really true since the puzzles are timed and you can try to beat the "personal best" time for some of the ones you don't really remember after awhile.

I just wish you were able to link with another player so you can work on a puzzle at the same time to see who gets to finish quickest. However, this is not an option. You can set up three different profiles, but can't link up and work at the same time.

All in all, this is a great game!! In fact, I'm buying one right now for my daughter, so she will leave mine alone :).

I am a senior also (over 65), and after reading your review, I have decided to buy this game. I don't have a big family, so not being able to link the games is not a problem for me.
Very good review!! Thank you.
