|I bought this game a while ago, and have not yet managed to finish it. It starts like a fairly normal puzzle game, which is pretty good, but as time goes on it becomes increasingly about speed and timing, which the name of the game pretty much hints at!|
By the end levels, you are trying to solve hard puzzles at high speed with no thinking time, which frustrates me, because Im only really interested in the puzzle itself. Lots and lots of trial, error, restart cycles.
There is also some irritating graphical issues, like the fact that sometimes the game arena is obscured by scenery, making it hard to see what youre doing. Also, on longer levels, it gets dark as time goes on, so that by the end you also cant see what youre doing. Im sure that these were intended to enhance the game environment, but mostly all they do is get on my nerves.
If I hadnt got totally addicted to it, Id be giving it 2 stars, but Im going to give it 3 for the staying power!
