Adventure by Ray Ivey
"From LucasLearning, a sister company to LucasArts, Pit Droids is a strategy
puzzle game that's marketed to kids. Frankly, I think this is a mistake. Not
because I don't think it's right for kidsI think they'll love itbut
because it's just as appropriate for adults, who might very well miss this game
because of its aggressive marketing toward children."
"The game takes place on the desert planet of Tatooine, and Watto the
flying junk dealer from Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, has just received a huge
shipment of pit droids. What the heck are pit droids, anyway? They're
one-meter-tall worker robots who are all enthusiasm and no brain. They're so
witless, in fact, that they will simply walk in a straight line unless told
otherwise. It's up to you to turn them in the right directions in order to get
them to their goals.
"Sounds very simple, doesn't it? It is, at first. The first few puzzles are
simply about routing the little buggers to their proper destination. Quickly,
however, things get more complicated."
"By now you're probably catching the drift of my enthusiasm for Pit Droids.
It's one quality package that I would recommend to puzzle lovers from any age
