It took me some time to complete the steps necessary to download this (via PC) and get it onto my PSP.  If that didn't make me feel stupid enough - there was the game to convince me I have misplaced the few brain cells that I'd had the day before.  disgust

First off, they don't tell you in the tutorial that pieces are being connected together, automatically - but you will usually need to hit a button to do it in the actual game.  Yes, I actually was forced to read the rules - where I also found that you can pause the walking figure while you think your way through it.  My figure kept falling through holes or and leaping through the air while I tried to figure out how to rotate the puzzle correctly. D'oh!

If you like puzzles though, you can't beat the pricetag ($10), and the game is so "outside the box" (geeze, I hate that phrase) that it is well worth checking out, IMO.

For that type of game - if the word "type" even applies here - I'd give it a solid 8 out of 10.  thumbsup

I was thinking of grabbing the PSP version, but you can't use infrastructure mode to download new puzzles frown

I may go PS3 version at some point.

Yeah you can pause the walking dude, lol, though I'm not 100% sure you can do it on the demo. On the full game's tutorial I'm not sure you can either, but on the non-tutorial part of the game you can use the buttons (I think it was triangle for pausing the figure, square for connecting the pieces together when you get your orientation in place.) Made me feel a lot less stupid after I read how to play!   disgust

And, TML, what is infrastructure mode? You need a PS3 to get it? icon_confused

If you get the PS3 version, you can connect online and download new puzzles.  Puzzles made by devs, puzzles made by other PS3 owners, etc.

For the PSP version, you can only trade levels via ad-hoc (locally).

Ahh, I see, thanks.  I doubt that will be a problem for me though.  I strongly suspect this is one of those super little games that I'll love for a little while, but when it's over, I'll be plenty happy, lol.  nod
