Seems kiddy but actually pretty fun

giftiger_wunsch | June 11, 2014 | Review of Tiny Brains

My first impression when I started playing this was this is clearly aimed at small children, and I resolved to give it a quick go before giving up with it.

Well, my quick go turned into completing the main game and defeating the final boss. Despite the theme, the puzzles are interesting and unique and though not especially difficult, were challenging enough to keep me entertained for a good couple of hours already.

I haven't tried playing it with friends but it seems it'd make for good multiplayer, but alone it makes you multitask and think about what each of your 4 characters' abilities can do, and how you can combine them to complete the challenges laid before you. An excellent time-waster game.

Very fun but occasionally very frustrating game

giftiger_wunsch | Sept. 10, 2013 | Review of Towns

This is a great game if you enjoy being creative and building things; it kept me up into the early hours of the morning more than once while excavating dungeons and having my 'townies' build themselves a nice place to live. But the lack of direct control over the townies' actions can be very frustrating when, for example, they build or dig themselves into a place where they can't escape and you can't easily find them, and then starve to death. One such incident involving 3 of my best-equipped townies is what prompted me to stop playing.
