The best puzzle games are ones that are easy to learn but difficult to master. Sure, anyone can beat a level of Peggle, but can they do it with only four balls? How about just one? Angry Birds allows progress by popping all the pigs, but those who really want to show the world their skills need to do it with the least amount of resources used.

UFO Dad Review

Grilling me softly with his song.

HIGH A puzzle where a turbine the player can't turn is rotated by the air currents rising off a few candles. Hey, at least I got a laugh out of it.

LOW The incredibly irritating stagger affecting the main character's walk at the start of the game.

WTF So the combination to this safe is just written on a note in the drawer underneath the safe?

When is a remake not a remake?

HIGH The writing is archly funny throughout.

LOW Repeating the ‘get past the guards' sections multiple times.

HIGH The game works, I guess.

LOW Bland, repetitive "puzzles" and levels.

WTF Does this game perpetuate colonialist privilege?

Scribblenauts Unmasked

HIGH Is that over 30 different Batmen?

LOW Spending 20 minutes at the end trying to figure out what word the game wants me to type.
