Quandary Review by Steve Ramsey

"It was with my daughter Clare that I set off to look for materials, our first port of call being the doll cupboard. Some of the needed parts will be found simply by looking, but most will be rewarded after the successful completion of a puzzle. Clare was in control of our adventure, and the puzzles were pretty much on the mark for a 9-year-old. Bringing flowers back to life combined shape and colour recognition with a timed element, tidying a bookshelf was an exercise in pattern sequences, and retrieving items from the back of the cupboard involved reasoning in both size and space. Most of them Clare did herself, discussing strategies with me as she went, only asking for help here and there."

"Overall I thought the design of the puzzles was excellent, especially for a 9-year-old. The game is for ages 8 and above, but I think it is best aimed at children up to about 12 or maybe slightly older. Certainly Clare's older sister Emily, who is 13, found the puzzles easy, although she did have fun when she joined in. Some of the arcade type games also suited Emily more than Clare. And there was a 41 year old who thoroughly enjoyed the little maze games with the ambulance and the pursuing police cars, changing traffic lights and blocking the road with boulders and trucks."

"The game arrived on a school holiday afternoon, so was perfectly timed. It took about 3 hours to play to the end, but has been restarted a couple of times to play certain games. The ambulance chasing will get a thorough going over.

"The final word goes to Clare. "It was a fun game and I would recommend it to other 9 and 10 year olds. My favourite games were giving the candy to Harvey the dog, and typing with Gertie. I laughed when I made a mistake and she called it ‘do-do’. Daddy had to help me catch the petals and I didn’t like the game with the little balls. It was funny making E.T.’s finger go up his nose".

"What more can you say."
