When put into action, the gameplay is truly original. You can expect to get addicted, but you can also expect to get frustrated. This game isn't easy, and there are elements of trial and error as well as pure dumb luck. Some technical issues conspire to make it more difficult than it should be, although I'm sure unintentionally."
