serious movement issues
I was so looking forward to this game after watching the preview! I loved the cardboard graphics and the logic puzzle-style of gameplay was right up my alley. I thought I'd just buy it right out, but I'm glad I tried it out first! The only thing I couldn't stand about this game was the movement controls - they STINK! You have to click-and-drag and the cursor constantly gets stuck, so you click madly to free it and end up clicking something you didn't mean to - it's frustrating! It's so disappointing...this would've been one of my favourite games if not for the motion control. Why couldn't they have given you the option of using the arrow keys to move the screen instead??? Despite that, I still recommend this game - perhaps others won't find the movement issues as much of a problem, and the gameplay, graphics and music are adorable!

Wanted to love it...but
I so wanted to love this game! It's adorable. But, as someone else stated in their review, the in-game controls are terrible. When you try to look around, it gets stuck. The hints system is pretty bad, too. It only gives you the easier parts of the hint, with no way to get the full answer. If these bugs could be worked out, it would be totally awesome!

Good game, but it made me sick
This is a cool strategy/puzzle game. I wish I could play it, but it made me so motion sick that I had to quit.

Fun game; lousy interface
I found this game charming and silly in a fun way. Unfortunately, the interface will drive you crazy. If I was to say one thing to the developer, it would be "fix the mouse problem." You'll quickly discover that the cursor has a mind of its own. And it's enough to make you close the game and move on to the next.

Not very exciting
I thought this game sounding very interesting and was arleady thinking about buying it when I downloaded it to try. Glad I downloaded it to try first. If you are an experienced game player skip this. It was slow moving and not very challanging. The hints are usless. While I was still in the hour trial I was already into the more advanced sections and got stuck. The hints where two things I had already figured out and had nothing to do with where I was stuck. They were a waste of coins. I didn't buy this.

Interesting concept for an adventure game. It's more like a thinking game, but it plays like a child's game. Not very advanced. Still fun, though.

Besides the issues with the cursor mentioned in the other reviews the game was too short. It only had three chapters with 5 levels each. My 8 year old beat it in one day. I try to get him games that last him at least a month. I was very disappointed in that aspect. I really liked the concept though

I was looking for something a little different and at first this game was a breath of fresh air, but then it just didn't go anywhere. Every level was the same as the one before. However, my 5 year old thought it was awesome!

I'm sad as the art is adorable. It would be a fantastic game except for one thing. The movement within the panel. Unlike most games where you click and drag to see side to side, this game follows your cursor. I found this very difficult to play and got frustrated.
I still recommend it as this may not be a problem for others and it seems like a fun brain teaser game.

A 1 dimension game to save a princess. Graphics were pretty good, if you like games made out of cardboard, I think the idea is ok and I like to play different types of games but not sure about this one.
I couldn't get past the 2nd level, when I used hints it gave me hints for the parts I had already completed, would be a fun if you had nothing else to do but I wouldn't pay money for it.
