    Featuring an interesting story line, tons of levels, simple controls, and cool artwork, the only curse we found was the amount of space it takes up on an iDevice.

    Whatever platform you choose to play it on, MacGuffin's Curse is a fun puzzler with a surprising amount of depth thanks to its adventure-game inspired dialogues; challenging and amusing for gamers of all walks.

    MacGuffin's Curse is a great, meaty puzzler that will really get your brain cogs whirring. With so much content, the formula was bound to feel a little samey eventually, but by the time that feeling sets in you'll have more than gotten your money's worth.

    The only thing that I didn't really like about McGuffin's Curse is, perhaps, the controls.

    MacGuffin's Curse has top-of-the-line production values, but the gameplay can be a bit simple.

    Packing in character from start to finish, MacGuffin's puzzle play ultimately doesn't entertain enough in its own right to enable the game to stand out from the crowd.

    The game fares quite a bit better on Steam. [June 2012, p.29]
