  • Summary: Eets is a downloadable game that comes with its own puzzle maker and challenges players to use the power of angry giant marshmallows, chocolate pumping power shooters or invoke the trickery of prankster whales to progress through the game and solve a puzzle. Eets Gameplay is like "Lemmings Meet The Incredible Machine Plus a Touch of Character." Players step onto a rich looking platform of lush grasses against a sunny sky and compel the main character, Eets, to find puzzle pieces or shards placed throughout the game's levels. Eets players progress through the game by acquiring puzzle pieces and by collecting a certain amount, doors will open to new levels such as Smoreland or Kaboom Desert. Players control Eets by feeding him, causing certain emotions and behaviors to erupt based on the food and other props you serve up to him. Get Eets to bite into a tasty chocolate chip and he happily jumps into areas where you want him to progress; give him a sad marshmallow and he will be afraid to move off a cliff. The game is full of suprises from sneezy sows that don't like to be touched and respond by firing off superpigs, to carts that roll and explode when triggered. Players can figure out what makes each element tick and set off chain reactions to get to their desired destination. In addition to the games more than 100 levels, Eets includes a puzzle maker where players can create their own fun by developing levels complete with their choice of music, hurdles, characters, time of day, atmosphere and level of difficulty.

  1. Eets is one of the few titles I have come across to combine elements of puzzle solving into a uniquely immersive world that can only be described as weird and wonderful.
  2. This little game is addictive, if not more so, as gems like "Bejeweled", "Bookworm", or pretty much any downloadable puzzle game out there. [Sept. 2006, p.76]
  3. Eets is exactly the type of game I wish the major video game companies would work on. It features a simple concept that is both fun and addictive, plus offers a large community creating new puzzles for you to solve as I write this.
  4. With a tasty main game and moreish extra levels, Eets is a gaming snack to recommend. [June 2007, p.91]
  5. Cute, weird, and very addictive. [Aug 2006, p.105]
  6. Unfortunately, the platform physics are as bipolar as the hero, turning the game's excellent animation into a veneer for unpolished gameplay. [Sep 2006, p.96]

    Pros: - cute & fun addictive puzzle game - interesting graphics, sound effects, music - nice variety of items and objects to interact with - built-in puzzle hints system if you need a little help
    - viewable puzzle solutions for those that really wanna cheat


    Cons:

    - limited screen resolutions (1024 x 768 & 800 x 600 only)
    - no volume control
    - puzzle solutions don't require any effort to access (unlike Machinarium where you had to play a mini-game)


    Other Thoughts:

    Kind of reminds me of the old Lemmings games a little bit but with only one character to save/manipulate instead of many. Haven't had a chance to play very yet but it does seem a little easy so far. Time will tell.

    I really didn't like this game. Got it for $2.50 some time ago, and this was one of the few games that I regretted spending money on. It describes itself as a combination of Lemmings and The Incredible Machine, and it's right to do so, in that it takes the most annoying aspects of both games. It combines the frustration of not having enough control over the things moving on the screen with the frustration of having to fling things in random directions and hope they do what you want them to. And unlike The Incredible Machine, your creativity means nothing; the only thing that matters is finding the solution the developer intended you to find. Playing this game truly felt like a chore, so I never went back to it, and I can't recommend it to anyone else, not even if it was free. Expand

    I didn't really know what to expect from this game, for 2.50$ I thought "what could I loose?"

    A puzzle game with impressive art and a good
    concept you'd think it won't be that hard to pull off, this game shouldn't call itself a puzzle, it's more like "point out the obvious answer and wait 10 minutes for the level to play out" type of game, the levels are too easy and too redundant, nothing interesting to make you want to keep going, and you spend hours waiting for the level to carry out even with fast-forwarding...
