    It's difficult to put a numerical score to an experience like Curiosity, but it deserves to be experienced by as many people as possible.

    I kind of enjoy tapping away at these glass blocks anyway just to kill some time and working with thousands of others towards one ultimate goal.

    Is Curiosity a good game? No, not by a long shot, even if it could function properly without the constant server problems. But that's really the point, it seems, to experiment on how long people will continue to play even while knowing that it isn't good.

    No matter where you stand on all of this, I think we can all agree that server issues are a total bummer. Curiosity suffers from them, and at times it kept me from even firing the game up. I'm hopeful the issue will be fixed in a forthcoming patch, but as of now it's a pretty big annoyance.

    Curiosity is a large social oriented game where the entire iOS (and Android) community chips away at the massive block. The block consists of trillions of tiny cubes, organized into layers. Each layer destroyed reveals a picture or a color. When you break these tiny little glass cubes, you can earn some coins.With these coins you can earn you can buy chisels and bombs and such to help destroy the blocks quicker. Curiosity is not a game. The only thing that you pretty much do is break blocks, and I find that to be extremely boring. Maybe someday one lucky person will find what Expand
