A lot of the reviews have comments about the graphics not being spectacular, but I don't think this game needs "eye-candy" graphics. The focus is on the gameplay itself and the problem-solving.

This game really challenged me. It required a lot of planning, timing, and really tested my depth perception and critical thinking skills. The game gets harder and harder as you progress through the stages and their questions, and really becomes a "brain teaser".

I agree this game isn't for children, and it would probably appeal more to an older audience who want to test their cognitive skills. It's a fun game, but it isn't easy!

I love puzzle games and logic games. This one, left me a little bored. It's not much for logic. You are timed and you have so many moves you can make to get your bonus points. You don't get graded on anything so it's not like it even tells you your IQ. Though there are a lot of levels the game feels short and dumb.

It's really more of a test of your patience. You will have to redo levels and it docks points for that. In some levels, which involve a lot of thinking, your time limit seems altogether too short and impossible. If you're really testing your intelligence then you should be able to figure it out with logic. You will make mistakes because some of the mechanics of the game don't make sense and aren't explained. Really if you did all the levels once, you could do them perfect the second time.

The game seems more about memorization and trial and error. I think Exit was more of a logic test than this. The game falls short in play.

There are a lot of mind games and mazes and puzzles to solve in this game. It can get frustrating and tedious at times, but it's supposed to be. It's a fun game to rent and play for awhile. Not for most kids. More for people who like problem solving.
