Hard Puzzles That's Irrelevant to the Plot

Okay, I bought this game (big mistake there) not too long ago because I heard nothing but good things about it; so I decided to give it a shot. I'll admit the graphics look cool and plot seem alright, but what got me frustrated about this game were the puzzles! I know it's a puzzle game and all and I do enjoy a good puzzle game now and then, but seriously, these puzzles are more for high school to college level! They really need to change that E rating to a T at least! I'm not kidding! These puzzles are so complicated I can see kids getting absolutely frustrated that they'd want to throw their DS out the window. Not to mention that most of these puzzles are irrelevant to the story and are REALLY weird!
For example, "using some matches, show us what a dog would look like after being run over?" Are you serious!? Why would I know that, let alone want to? This is suppose to be for kids!? Again, T rating at least!
Anyway, bottom line: If you want to challenge your brain with hardcore puzzles with a cute storyline, this game is right for you. But if you're looking for a simple yet somewhat challenging game with a nice plot, move along!

The graphics were great. But thiis game made my brain hurt! If you're into optical illusions and thought provoking puzzles you'll love it. It was just a little too stressful for me. I use my DS to help me relax, not twist my head into knots.

Good game, engaging puzzles, solid story. Very fun over all, but NO replay ability Good to rent not so good to buy.
