Worth the Buy
Entertaining puzzle game. A million varied puzzles, all under 5 minutes. Mixed with mini games, under 2 minutes. Strange graphics in between did not add anything to the game. Challenging enough to be entertaining but not frustrating. The key is to play in Challenge mode. Which is not really very challenging. Regular mode is too easy. Endless hours of easy going entertainment.

Nice basic puzzles
First thing to note about this game, there is a Challenge mode and a Quick-Play mode. The puzzles in the Quick-Play mode are very, very easy; elementary school level at best. The Challenge mode (which just has a long list of all the puzzles and tracks your time for each one; the challenge is finishing them all) has harder puzzles, but they still aren't super challenging. As others have said, they're relaxing and fun, not hair-pulling mental workouts. Another neat thing is that you can click on the letters or numbers, use your keyboard to type them, or use your mouse or tablet stylus to draw them. The character recognition that lets you draw the letters and numbers has a mode to teach it your handwriting if you're having trouble, too. That would probably be fun for kids. :)
The constant motion is slightly annoying, as well as the many splash screens. If I clicked the Play button, I want to play; I don't need another screen giving me a chance to go back!
I used a coupon to buy this game only because it has Link-a-Pix, which are a really fun picture-forming logic puzzle. This is the only computerized version of Link-a-Pix I know of, except for the 3-4 free puzzles weekly on the creator's website. For me, that was worth a coupon. For others, maybe not.

Good time wasting game
I play this usually when I'm also having the TV on in the back gound, and it's a really nice game to waste your time on. The challenges are good, the fun factor is high apart from being a little repetitive perhaps?

Fun game, not just for kids
I have to agree with others, this isn't just a kids game, it has a variety of games, my least fav is the number connect game. I also play a lot of these games in book form from Pennypress and Dell. You have to play in the harder mode and even then it isn't to difficult, just a nice break from Adventure and HOG.

OK If You Like Just Puzzles
This is just a puzzle game - nothing else to complicate it.
On the plus side, lots of different types of puzzles to complete.
On the down side a lot of the puzzles are far too easy for adults to complete.
This is probably one for the whole family (kids should be able to complete a good proportion of these).
I recommend this one for the whole family especially if you like puzzles.

The title tells you the entire game - Puzzles
There are many levels to play within the game - yes its a simple game set up thats why many say its a kids game. Some of these games kids would not get. It was a fun demo to play. There are over 500+ ones to play. Just gotta keep scrolling through the list. Not one for me but was enjoyable for an hour play. Thank you.

Moving background ruins it.
I'm one of those who gets motion sick easily from games that have unnecessary movement. I'm also one who LOVES pencil puzzles such as are in this game. Unfortunately although this has the latter, it also has the former. I could barely play 3 mins without feeling sick and couldn't quit fast enough, due to a patterned background that moves the entire time you're solving the puzzle. Really??? How is that necessary??? No option to change it or turn it off that I could find.
Otherwise, I couldn't play long enough to comment, except game buttons and interface are very large and in your face. Kids would probably like this as would people who like pencil games. Myself, I'll stick with the pencil and paper variety that don't have swirling nausea-inducing backgrounds.

Might be good for little ones
I'm a puzzle fanatic. I love crosswords, logic problems, etc., so when I saw this game, I thought it was going to be enjoyable. I realized off the bat that the games were designed for younger family members, and not for adults. The music is annoying and the puzzles far too simple. I'll pass on this one.

This review is based on the demo.
When I first saw this game I had high hopes, because I usually love these type of puzzles.
These are some of the typical puzzles that you would find in the puzzle books from Dell Publishing and Penny Press.
Except... a lot of MY FAVORITES from there were omitted.
On the plus side...
There are LOTS of puzzles and a variety of them.
Seek and Find word puzzle
Fill in the dot to make a picture
to name a few.
On the negative side...
The difficulty level was geared more toward children than adults. I think the most difficult thing was trying to write my name with that stupid pencil!
The music and graphics were annoying and took away from what could have been a most enjoyable game.
This game is not for me and I won't even purchase as a daily deal or catch of the week.
I would recommend this game to elementary/middle school children and someone who likes fairly easy puzzles.
