EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

This logic puzzle will really stretch your brain skills. That's because it includes six different colors of Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty, including an exclusive Binary Blue color. You must stretch, pull, and knead the putty to solve 60 challenges, ranging from beginner to expert. Solutions are on the back of each challenge card.

The object is to connect same-colored dots by creating same-colored paths of the putty without crossing different colored putty paths. Pick a challenge and place small dots of the putty and any bridge or blocker pieces as shown on the card onto the puzzle grid. Stretch and shape each color of putty separately to create paths along the grid, connecting the same-colored dots without crossing paths with other colors of putty. When all of the putty paths connect the matching colored dots, you win.

Is It Fun?

This is definitely a challenging puzzle game, especially when the challenges start adding in blockers (path obstructions) and bridges (pieces that allow one color to pass over another color). But what would a good puzzle game be if it didn't present a challenge to your spatial reasoning and thinking skills? And this one has the neat tactile appeal of the putty.

If you're a fan of puzzle games, then this one will be fun to play.
