THIS game is super-duper fun. However! It's challenging. Like many logic puzzles, it can range from the 'What even!???' to the 'OMG, so obvious, how did I not see?' And that's the fun, right?
The lower level puzzles are fairly straightforward. You look in the book, and attempt to re-create the picture with the moving ice-tile-pieces. It's a sort of adjustable ice tetris.
The master levels though - whoa! I got stuck on the first one. And with these type of puzzles, you can either "see" the solution - or just not. I struggled with it, then my hubby came over, then his brother joined in and we all stared at it and poked around until we finally found the answer. And we're all big on these kind of games (2 programmers and 1 philosopher), so yeah, this was a beast. BUT! I love these kind of puzzles. It was fun.
I think I want it for Christmas for myself. ;)
