A Magnetic Adventure
Great logic and machine teaching game
Both my sons and I liked playing this game. You need to use magnetic principles, as well as levers, gears and switches to get through each puzzle level (mouse use required).
No two levels are exactly the same.
Some can be too challenging for the younger set, but most are winable by trying again a different way.

A Little Magnet that Makes One think
Thanks for the reviews - i would have passed up on this wonderful game but the reviews got me interested. What a great concept - imagine a little magnet that stretches your brain to think outside the square - more of this please. I agree with another review there should at least be an "undo" button instead of doing it all over. And the hint button takes too long to recharge. I might wait for DD as others mentioned it's a short game. Try it....it's great fun!

A good puzzle game. Some of the puzzles took some thought. My granddaughters needed some help on some of the levels. Good learning game, as you have to think about how to use the magnet to accomplish the goal.

Got bored after 5 minutes. Very repetitive. Maybe I should have played longer to get to the more challenging puzzles?

Very Challenging! For those who are very good at building games.
This review is based on the one hour trial.
I personally don't like this game, but I still consider it quite good. This game is best for people who like games that really make them think. The first few puzzles are pretty simple, but this is one of those games that can get you stuck forever on a certain level if you're just having problems figuring it out. I am definitely not someone who likes that sort of game. But this would be an excellent game for those who do.
This game is pretty neat, and would be quite fun for those who like the gadget/builder/machine games. You have to solve puzzles by using magnets to move things. It gets quite hard, and the biggest downfall is that if you can't get past a level, well, you're kinda done. I didn't even finish the trial as I got stuck, but I don't have the patience for such games.
I recommend this game with reservations. You really have to be the type that likes these games.

its amazingly addictive
this is SUCH a fun game. it is beautifully illustrated, the music is encouraging, not annoying and you just want to sit and fiddle with these puzzles for hours. i HIGHLY recommend it.

As others have already said...
Great find, gotta love physics based games. Level of difficulty was just right and the story and characters were cute and added a nice touch to the game without being distracting. I just wish it were twice as long and yes, it would be nice if the hint button charged a little faster but when I got stuck I just went for a cup of coffee and came back to it later. Also some of the ones I got stumped on my six year old was able to point out the next step in the solution so I guess it just needed a fresh pair of eyes to work it out. Easily worth the price, this is a must have for any fan of the physics-based genre!
