Excellent little game.
The grids start with 10 x 10, but soon get to 15 x 15. I didn't finish the first page of 20 puzzles in the demo, so don't know when they get bigger. In the demo I encountered one jigsaw-puzzle.
You have a 'best time' to beat, which can be kind of hard, as you don't get many squares to fill at the edges.
The demo ended the game without saving, so I have to start all over again. But that gives me a chance to work on beating the best time .

This game is similar to Gizmos Riddle of the Universe, same developer, same layout. If you liked that one, you'll like this one too. It also has the jigsaw puzzles that pop up every now and again. I only played a few minutes but I liked the Halloween theme graphics better than the first Gizmos.

Based on playing the first Gizmos, these games require logic and not guessing and they have larger boards. The puzzles are very well designed to be challenging but not impossible and the game will take many hours to finish.

For me a bonus was that you can actually take away the voices on the story and read the text.

I highly recommend the Gizmos games.

(But I haven't finished playing Riddle of the Universe yet ... I need a holiday so I can catch up on my games!)

I didn't know this was the second Gizmos, thank you for telling us Janette5
I bought it right away. The grids get large, and can be very challenging

Enjoyed the first one, so only needed half of the demo to know
I wanted this one. Nice use for my ready-to-expire coupon.
Since I find some of the early boards a bit on the easy side,
I put a little more challenge in them by NOT marking the
empty squares as I play.

I enjoy these games and assumed it would be an instant purchase-alas- the background was so invasive only played one puzzle - now off to erase it from my computer

This isn't a bad nanogram game, but I'm on the fence about purchasing it. The grids were really small on my computer screen. It is nice to be able to turn off the voices and remove the background. While I don't really care about the timer, I think that it's not necessary for this game since you do want to think about where you put the tiles.

I love both of the Gizmos! I do not care about the story or the puzzles, but you can skip both, so they are not an issue. The voice and background are removable. The larger grids are a little small, especially on the first Gizmo.

All in all, if you like this kind of game, try it!
