The puzzles are challenging, which I like, however I think I would of had more fun if I had kids around. There were a couple puzzles where I had one item left I couldn't find, but I couldn't find a way to skip past the puzzle I couldn't beat. More eyes (especially inquisitive child eyes) would have made this more fun.
My husband and I played this game for less than an hour and decided it was going back. It really took a lot of thinking and by the time we stopped we both had eye strain. Solving a puzzle opens up mini-games which were fun, but took a good deal of patience. I prefer something more fun and relaxing.

Now I don't mind 'kiddie' games... I like a good puzzle game... so I started to play this with an open mind... Annoying features... to even start the game you have to crank some machine up... so you have to twirl the remote - which does and doesn't work... very frustrating. We finally got it to work. Then, the first game we chose to play was an aquarium themed one where we were given a list of things to find. Our first thought was... is our tv too small for this game? because we couldn't see anything on the screen and were convinced it must be to the right or left... we never did find out if this was the case... the graphics were very lame and it was really hard to make anything out really. Every now and then, through random clicking on anything on the screen, we would find something and open a side game... which we would complete. Then, back in the regular game, if we accidently hit it again, the side game would keep opening up so we would have to repeatedly back out of it. We finally gave up, pulled the game out of our console and placed it immediately in the return envelop. What a waste of time!
