I wasn’t sure what this was- but we saw tons of advertising for it and when it came out no one had it in stock. My daughter and I looked at ads and were so-so on the concept… The one day at a Wal-Mart they had “demo: to try. She was hooked. We bought the game and she played for about 12 hours straight. It was a godsend over long road trip we recently took. I also played- and was a blast. The game has a bit of a story line but the meat of it is constant brain teasers and puzzles. You get more points if you guess right first try and with no hints.
This game is PERFECT to pick up and play a quick 5 minutes or to play over a long drive. I highly recommend it for ages about 6 + and adults as well. You can also download new puzzles weekly. It is well made and lots of play value. Probably one of the best Nintendo DS games I have seen in a long long time. it is supposed to be the first in a series of three games.
I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this for anyone.
