We thought the ending could have been a bit more rewarding, especially for youngsters who committed a lot of time and hard work into completing the puzzles. Otherwise, CDB is a recommended purchase for young people and their parents who enjoy playing games together.

Die kleinen Denkspielchen sind zwar bewährte Klassiker, nur leider sind die Aufgaben in Windeseile gelöst. Wer unbedingt 28 Denksportaufgaben in einer farbenfrohen Computerumgebung sucht, kann ja mal reinschauen.

Eine Zeitlang ist es daher schon launig, die teilweise recht originellen Rätsel-Nüsse zu knacken, doch stellt sich trotz der (sparsam) eingestreuten Adventure-Elemente bald heraus, daß die Knobeleien meist eher für jüngere Ratefüchse gedacht sind. Und in letzter Konsequenz ist Castle of Dr. Brain halt nicht viel mehr als ein gigantisch aufgeblasenes Rätselheft - zu einem wahrhaft pfundigen Preis!
