    Fans of the classic Pipe Dream concept might find something to like in Heron: Steam Machine, but the pre-filled playing field and inability to shuffle up the board when it's not agreeing with you can cause frequent frustration -- so be prepared for some stress if you try to let off steam with this Machine.
  2. Heron: Steam Machine isn't going to win any awards, but it has a clean cartoony look and offers a great 5-minute pick-up game that will have broad appeal. The game has a solid play mechanic with a great arcade feel to it backed by bouncy music - for 500 points that's not half bad, and if you like puzzlers it's definitely worth a look.
  3. Heron: Steam Machine is an enjoyable puzzle game and sits well with its many compatriots on the WiiWare service.

    A neat puzzle game with a surprisingly entertaining multiplayer mode. [Christmas 2009, p.101]

    Heron Steam Machine is an above average puzzle game for WiiWare, that is worth trying for its price, specially for its multiplayer mode.

    I've been enjoying this game all weekend now. It's small, but it's a blast.
