    There's a moderately clever concept buried somewhere in here, but it isn't worth digging out.

    Your $10 is better spent almost anywhere else.

    Just what the doctor ordered - if he ordered brainy but slightly disappointing puzzle action. [Feb 2011, p.75]

    Yet another game where the concept promises something great, but the execution falls far short. Despite the impressive look, satisfying puzzles and the helpful fail-safe offered by the time travel, the actual effort of manipulating the items around you is more like work than fun, thanks in large part to the awkward controls

    The game has you control an introverted scientist who always seems to make backfiring inventions. He turns his pet cat into a potted cactus, so of course the logical fix is to go back in time and prevent himself from making that mistake again. There are a few quirks in the controls, building machines could be a bit smoother and the Doc is a very fragile being, but all in all I think for an indie developer they've done a pretty good job. The art style is lively and colorful which should appeal to younger audiences, it's the game encourages logical thinking to solve puzzles as well as constructive thinking when building inventions out of objects littered around the landscape. The humor is great as the Doc's robot backpack constantly ridicules his partner while the Doc seems to have rather a Mr Bean demeanor, completely oblivious to the negativity. Full Review »
