1 player was too short. my wife beat this game in a little less then a week. would have loved more challanges. 2 player was cool and pretty fun, but to get everything unlocked my wife beat the game, then since she was now good at it, she beat me like a rented mule. then it sucked getting stomped into the dirt, so then i made her play mario kart on the wii!!

I beat this game in about a day. It was pretty fun except I didn't know what I was making most of the time. Add this to this and add that to that but I didn't know what I was adding because it's a timed challenge. You can look at what you're adding but it takes time so usually I just added stuff and didn't know what it was. There are 5 challenges (bosses) and they were fairly easy. I didn't like that you can't skip the dialogue. If you have to retry a level you have to sit through the conversation again. All in all it's a fun game for about a day or two. Definitely a rental!
The FIRST challenge in 2-player mode was building a BOMB...nuff said.
I had extreme difficulty playing Science Papa alongside my 7-year-old daughter due to the mature theme of the first challenge. In this day & age, NO ONE needs to be spoon-fed a bomb recipe through a "harmless" video game. She was fascinated by the novelty of the characters & format, and would have naively continued further had I not pulled the plug.
Majorly disappointed in the lack of moral judgment on the part of these game designers! :(
