Today’s games tend to lack creativity. Their objectives require you to know which buttons make you jump and which make you attack your enemy and that’s about it. And while critics blame such games for the increased lack of physical activity amongst the youth population, they forget to mention that there’s a significant lack of mental activity as well.
So when games like Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece by The App House, LLC comes along, the need to think in order to progress in one’s game becomes a refreshing quality. Of course, I will not deny that first person shooters and adventure games do indeed take some cunning and skill, but Simon Graham provides a family friendly puzzle game that provides challenges and adventures perfect for the developing child that can be enjoyed by all ages.
