Pretty cool

This game is pretty cool and all and I do recommend anybody downloading this for the kids and it’s pretty fun and I just started playing it for like 10 minutes and I’m already on level two and stage Five and it’s pretty hard on that level and I couldn’t complete it in anyway because my storage is always before and couldn’t add anything else and I didn’t really learn anything from this since it was just you do it with your own strategy so I’m just gonna give you things you can use in the coding I’m not gonna teach you could do this to do It’s like if you do this wrong figure it out yourself go tell your momBut it is pretty cool and I like using it and it is hardSo I don’t recommend This game for any five and under girls since it’s really hard I’m already almost 9 and I still can’t figure out level two stage 5

Great game, bad learning curve

This game is cute, easy to learn to play and it requires some real thinking and intuition to solve levels. I want to love it.

The problem with this game is the difficulty curve is more like a cliff. I think the reason is that in order to solve challenges you have to figure out the optimal solution that the designer wants you to use. There’s no room for inefficiency.

Human Resource Machine is a similar game available on iOS that’s much more lenient on the player.
