OWL reader Soren, 10, got a chance to play this game. And he’s a fan!
You have to solve puzzles to continue on in the story. As the story goes on, the puzzles get harder and harder. You have to stretch your brain to figure out all the problems the characters encounter along the way. Sometimes the puzzles are so hard, you have to get scrap paper out to help you figure them out. Luckily, they have hints if you get really stuck. If you like brainteasers, this is a good one. I feel smarter already! 9/10
