Not just kids will love it. ANYONE. This is easily the best DS game this year and a must have title for any DS owner.

One thing is certain, everyone must try it. I'm going to click on "keep" right after I finish this review.

It's a thinking game. Those with good "thinking outside the box" skills will love it.

The amount replayability in this game is tremendous. There are I think about 160 to 200 levels and a humongous dictionary of objects you can write into the game. And it has a level editor and you can share the levels (online I believe and locally). Also, you can replay the levels again to use different items and master the level. There are unlockables and secret areas.

And parents, this game will promote and feed the creativity of your kids when they play it. And they will learn. They will ask you for help. "How can I get the cat off the roof?" And you'll say, a "ladder". And they'll ask again, but how else can I do it. And you'll say "fireman". And they will also learn new words this way and see what they are and how they interact with things.

And they will learn how to draw letters (you can also use a keyboard) but you can ask your kids to draw their letters instead.

You're even rewarded for finding peaceful solutions to the problems in the game.

A unique title that I found very interesting but also quite challenging. The ability to type in almost anything you want and use it in the game is very addicting. But after a little I found myself using the same items over and over again to get places. First it was the jetpack, then the pegasus (because of the conveniance of the constant flying), then the reindeer (same as the pegasus but more manlier). This game is great and has a wide variety of levels. You can even build levels and purchase soundtracks + avatars with the money you earn. Overall:

I love this game, I bought it and alot of words i wouldnt think worked...worked! By the way, you can use some interesting, helpful items to beat hard levels that SEEM impossible (like shrinking a penguin down to size, puting him in a bag and carying the bag)

Shrink ray
Invisibility cloak
Grappling hook
Lasso
Dragon (use him to kill your enemies, then delete him)
Santa
Submarine
Scuba/Flippers/Diving suit (for underwater levels)
Sun (make lots of Suns for dark levels)
Fire extinguisher
Mind control gun (to make enemies like dragons rideable)
or even a Teleporter/Time machine! (to take you to secret levels)

Theres alot of fun in this game, no level is impossible (trust me, maybe you need to use a rope?) and there are miny Achievements in the game!
