This game is so freaking awesome dude!! Youre a genius. S2


Very creative and very annoying (but in a good way!)

Favorite Game

Fun and challenging

Beautiful & Challenging

This is a fun & interesting game with simple but beautiful graphics. The puzzles are unlike any Ive seen and really make you think to uncover the solutions. As to its addictiveness, the best comparison I can come up with is the game Riker brought back from Risa in Star Trek that entranced the entire crew of the Enterprise. But you know, much less evil than that. So far...




This game is so creative!
