Puzzler World 2013
I own the First Puzzler World and I like that game. I was very eager to try the NEW Puzzler World, thinking the sequel would be even better, but it is much, much WORSE. It is all VERY confusing, there are NO clear instructions. I also was stuck on the Link-it puzzle with connecting the last 2 numbers: 8 connecting 8. I could NOT get a hint because i did not have any money for a hint. I will not buy this game, as it now is, even for a DD price.

Try before buy - this game - what can I say - "stink" the most boring game for many years

Love, love, love
In spite of some of the negative reviews here I went ahead and bought the game. I figured there were so many different kinds of puzzles, I would just play the ones I could figure out. Well, after stumbling a bit on the first 4 or 5 puzzles, I managed to figure everything out. It wasn't as hard as I expected, and I am having a lot of fun. I have the most trouble with the Takegaki puzzle. Thank goodness for hint tokens :) . I have been having a great time and am on #144 so you can see I'm having a good time.

I love this game
This game has given me hours of fun. It actually makes me think! There are instructions that explain the basics of how each game is played. I like the fact that there aren't too many available hints. You have to earn tokens to get better hints and earning them does not take very long.
I recommend this game to any one who likes word/game puzzles.

Took a great simple game and over complicated it..
Refer to title. Sometimes simple is better.

Impossilbe to figure out.
I love puzzles and was so excited glad I did not buy this tried three different puzzles and could not figure any of them out.

I did not like this at all - the music was too loud, finding out which button did what was annoying, they were slow to respond, directions for completing the puzzles were confusing

Have to give it a chance
Since I have Puzzler 2, I was really happy to see this game, once it came out. I have to admit, I was a little sceptical, since it didn't get very good reviews, but I'm glad I didn't give up on it. If you are familiar with the other Puzzler games, the information/instructions are very good. On the screen where you pick the puzzle number, there are 3 buttons on the bottom. The bottom right button (i), is where all the instructions are for each puzzle. Puzzler 2013 is quite a bit more challenging with more and different type puzzles, which I love, since I'm getting really bored with so many HO games that seem to be the majority that are out there now. This one is really worth your money, too. The only negative I would have to say, is that the screens were changed, a bit, so on Linkapix and Suduko , you can't play in windowed mode, because the numbers are too small to see. On a couple of the other games, while you are playing and trying to concentrate on numbers and adding, there will be a big button blinking constantly, which really distracts you. Other than that, I really enjoy these type of games, and would like to see more of them.

Outstanding Puzzle Game!!!!!!!!!
This is an exceptional collection of puzzle games. It?s a shame that the devs made the rules for the individual games hard to find for many reviewers. The rules are actually quite complete and easy to follow. They are located in the bottom right hand corner as a pink rectangle with an ?i? in it on both the ?Challenge Mode? screen, ?Master Mode?screen and main menu screen. Unfortunately, if you are playing a game, you must first exit the game to find them.
This program consists of over 1500 puzzles divided into 25 different puzzle types including crossword, sudoko, cryptograms, anagrams, word search and even hangman. Three of my favorites are logic games that I haven?t seen any place else: link-a?pix, takegaki and suko. There is even a variation of word search (my least favorite variation) called pathfinder which I really enjoyed! The games are very well programmed and designed. I can?t begin to imagine how much work went into programming all these varieties of games and then creating over 1500 different puzzles. A real labor of love; kudos to the devs!!!
You are never really stuck in any game as you are able to earn hints in a pinball game presented after every bonus game.
It occurred to me that this program is an excellent way to exercise your brain. Over a short period of time you work on verbal skills, math, spatial recognition, memory, logic, color coordination, etc..
Music is very upbeat. Actually, too upbeat for me and I had to turn it way down. I much prefer zen like music for working on puzzle games. An excellent example of a game with this type of music is ?Strimko? (excellent logic game) where I?ve actually left the music on as background while working at my desk.
Overall, this program rocks!!! If you enjoy any of these types of games, you can?t go wrong with this collection.
