5.0 out of 5 stars 7 Wonders, December 30, 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: 7 Wonders of the Ancient World - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
This is exactly the type of game I can play just about forever and not get bored with it. Frustrated, yes, but not bored. I've been able to complete the levels 3 times, but each time you complete all the levels and start over, the game gets progressively harder. Each of the 8 levels has 8 different sub-levels, or puzzles, progressing in difficulty. The trick is, with this game, that when you notice time is about to run out (the game will tell you to "hurry up"), you can press the start button which will pause your game and you can quit at that point. When you start play again, you'll be at the same sub-level. This way you don't lose a life; although invariably, you sometimes get caught up in the activity and don't realize the time is running out. You do get three lives, and lives are added at various points in the game, but the most I've ever had is 6, and managed to lose them all. It's a special skill to be that bad. I really do like this game though.

I too could play forever... but I have to say I am having a heck of a time with completing it a 3rd time.. you mentioned if you pause when you are about to run out of time.. or did you mean quit wouldnt that bring you back to the beginning? I do not listen to the music when I play.. any advice in helping me would be great... also since I love this game, could you recommend other games that are similar to this ? Thanks :)

Hi Angie. Yes - you're right. I did mean quit. It takes you back to the beginning of the stage, not the game. In other words, if you're in Atlantis at level 8 stage 7, and you quit (exit) when you go back you're still in at level 8 - 7. And for all my "sage" advice - I just lost 3 lives in that very stage. I usually play at night when I can't sleep, so I don't always have the sound turned on either. I do use headphones from time to time, but that seems to be a play thing for the cat, so that's not always practical. Most other games I play are pinball, so I can't really recommend any other games like this. Check under puzzle games on the gamestop website - they sometimes have interesting stuff. Good luck.
