Lovely graphics and fluid movement. The 3D element adds a little. But for pure puzzle enjoyment not much better than many sokoban clones.

That's fine but nothing to do with puzzling as much as making you grind through the same steps you just did before the finger slipped.

1. It's bulky (weighs about the same as your average DSLR)

3. It has a manual wind on.

5. It takes shots that are non-standard size (you get about 12 'exposures' on a 36 roll including the waste for loading) so you need to get the negatives developed manually.

6. There is no zoom.

7. There is no light metering.

8. The focal length is fixed (anything closer than about 10 inches is blurry)

9. The… Read more
