Puzzles, I didn’t really want this game when it was released but when it sold out on release it raised my eye a little. It’s only now that I have managed to get hold of a copy and give it a play. The game is based up of lots of small puzzles, 135 to be exact with a story built in.
The story is actually very good and also has little cartoon snippets which are brilliant to watch and looks better then most others I have witnessed on the DS.

The puzzles range from really easy to pretty hard and there were a couple I had to really think about. The game offers you hidden coins as you travel around the village talking to the locals, these hidden coins allow you up to 3 hints on each puzzle.

This game not only has puzzles and a good story but there are side quests, one is to build a gizmo which will help you find coins and hidden puzzles, another is a picture puzzle and another is to collect items for your hotel rooms. Once you complete all these more puzzles will open up for you and these will be difficult.

I have now finished all 135 and this took me 14 hours of game play which for a hand held is more then sufficient. Once you complete the game there will be more stuff for you to play around with, including movie, voice and sound clips, artwork and profiles and something called “the hidden door”.

The game really does push your mind and is also very addictive. I look forward until the next one

This game gets 85%
