  1. QuickSpot was a fantastic surprise. I hadn’t even heard of the game until the day it showed up for review, and it only took me ten minutes before I was hopefully hooked.
  2. It’s better than you think, but it's only to be played in small doses.

    The single player doesn't last forever and the multiplayer modes are fleeting, but for $19.99, this is a great title and a puzzler that shouldn't be missed!
  4. 70
    Despite the lack of variety, I found the game to be very addicting, and since most of the puzzles can be finished rather quickly, I found myself falling into the "one more puzzle" trap a lot.
  5. QuickSpot is charming, short, simple, and – best of all – affordable.
  6. QuickSpot has about as much lasting value as you'd expect from a game that is exclusively about spotting differences between two pictures, which is to say, not much.
  7. 40
    This is more in the line of a free Flash game on the web, or something Namco could have pitched at DS download kiosks.

    If you don't like spot the difference puzzles, don't pick this up, but if you do, this is about as good as you can get. The game If you don't like spot the difference puzzles, don't pick this up, but if you do, this is about as good as you can get. The game has a charming childish feel to it, both in the music, which is mostly poppy, electronic renditions of classical works, and the graphics. There are enough puzzles to keep you going for a while, and enough unlockable extra modes, like scrolling or animated pictures, to mix it up. Granted, some of the features are mere gimmicks, but know what plays a DS to get their fortune told anyway. Expand
