    An interesting puzzle game. So far, it's not too hard - which is good, because I'm not very good at puzzles. The atmosphere is quite nice, if a little repetitive (7)

    I have to dock a point however, for the looong legal notice that shows up every time you launch the game. It's almost 20 seconds long (just the notices - not the intro), and you can't skip it. Yes, we get it, all those

Yes, we get it, all those things are the trademarks of such and such. First time, ok. But after that: you're wasting my time! Because I don't play for long periods at once, I have to sit through this every single time I want to solve a puzzle or two (-1)

    Essential for those who likes a sit down and have a think. [Aug 2010, p.82]
  2. Buckets of whimsy and oodles of puzzles make this a satisfying adventure, despite the sometimes steep difficulty.
  3. The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is clever, simple, hard and very good to train our brains to solve problems.
