  • cheap price point.

  • Levels can be replayed at anytime and each level on the shelf UI has 4 levels within them. unlocked gems will show.
  • Getting a perfect move score will also show a yellow circle on the level to let you know you have aced that particular area.


  • 3D is not needed at all as the top screen is basically a bland looking window with random raindrops hitting against it.
  • No in game hints.
  • Soundtrack whilst calm and sobering, is too slow and will eventually put you to sleep.

In Summary, the game is a good brain teaser to have on your 3DS and is a great chill out game. Eureka moments have better satisfaction than the in game achievements but its still nice to have them. it would be nice to have a more social interaction option in there and defiantly a hints pop up. SO in short if you want a puzzler that you can attack like a crossword and chill with then you are sorted. if you like a bit of hand holding and dont like working your brain then maybe leave this one alone. The game has been on may systems before and this is just as good but in looks it feels a lot more tired and the top screen is a waste. Other tahn that its an average come great game.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
