Summary

Pretty fun even if you're not the target audience.

The Good

Despite being a science lesson about simple machines, it's enjoyable to build your robots to solve the puzzles. The game engine does a nice job putting the pieces together to make your creations look good.

The Bad

However, there are way too many variations on the same missions. You shouldn't have to do solve each mission with every possible limitation on robot design to get through the game. A minor annoyance, but the bipedal robots have an irritating way of walking.

The Bottom Line

Not a bad edutainment game.
