We enjoyed having to figure out which puzzle elements from 1 player fit with which elements from another player. 

The game had a nice variety of puzzles, though not particularly narrative driven.

It would have been nice for the hint system to be integrated within the game, as we only discovered the link to the hints by accident.

One element of the game was particularly obtuse and without hints we would never have known the correct way to use one of the games final elements.

Overall a solid game.

This game requires 2 players on 2 devices, more people can play but they have to choose which of the 2 player screens they will be working with.  The Player 1 screen gets one set of information and the Player 2 screen gets a totally different set of information.  You must use good communication skills to share information and solve the puzzles.  

I love this premises of communicating to share different pieces of information.  We found the puzzles juicy and satisfying for the majority of the game.  Towards the end we got frustrated with one puzzle which we had to get the solution for from the hint system, but the reason for the solution was not given.  So we still don't understand why that was the correct answer.   And secondly, there was a random thing that needed to be done - I don't think any of us would have thought to do it in a million years without getting it from the hint system.

The hint system is an external page, rather than being built into the game.  We would much prefer a built-in hint system.

So overall this is a nice game, although the 2 frustrating points at the end left us a bit flat at the finish.
