Eh....I think I'd rather buy and play the Christmas game for $2.99 on Christmas rather than the "stop global warming" game...I mean, really??? JMHO....

Like purple said this game has no real tutorial and I don`t understand really the rules. I prefer to play another puzzle game like Gemsweeper.

I got an Access Violation error so I cant even try it. Sounds like I'm not missing anything though.

Couldn't agree with you more on the confusion over this game. I wont be wasting a game credit on this one.

Simply terrible. It didn't work, there is no help once you get past the first introductory screen. Did any one at BigFish take a look at this thing before they put it up on the site?

I would take it down fast, if any one purchases it you're going to get complaints.

It won't work for us either (the screen goes black a couple times, then it comes back and says "Thank you for playing"). My son is pretty upset (he has autism and gets frustrated easily). I'm glad to see it's the game and not him or our computer.

Agree, I hope BF did not pay a lot for this game, because it is not user friendly, will not purchase this one.

This reminds me of what we used to do to learn coding back in the 80's, and early shareware.

Too bad, because I was looking for something different. I am bored, I am ready for world mosaic 3, a new solitaire, something ... sigh.

I have no idea why this game bothers having a theme of stopping global warming. It's strictly a puzzle game. A puzzle game with the world's most annoying music. Maybe that's the secret. Slowly kill off the human race with annoyance. I couldn't even get past the first level without wanting to melt the dice with the microwave. Definitely, deleting this trial.

I think I am just someone who likes math puzzle games. Unlike the other posters, I found this game enjoyable. This one combines adding numbers, subtracting numbers and making sure you've set up the cubes so they can reach each other to cancel themselves out. I definitely enjoyed the game.

I like math puzzel games to but I does not understand how to play this one. So, if you do, why don´t you write a tutorial?

Well I got it to work. Once you understand how to move the tiles around it get's more interesting. It's similar to the moving block games like Wonderland and Chip's Challenge. There are some interesting ideas but the exeuction is extremely poor.

Get a good programmer to re code the game and bring it up to today's standards and they would have a nice puzzle game.

I'm not buying it. BigFish - talk to the developer and have them redo it.

Guess I have to add to the list of downloaded it, it wouldn't start, uninstalled it right away, then reinstalled it, Tried to start it again and got the message "your trial time has expired". Darn, it looked like it might have been fun. However, looking at all the other posts, guess not. thanks for the info everyone.

The exact same thing happened to me. Too bad, I like math puzzles.

I guess you have to slide the dice around until two of the same number touch each other and then they disappear. I played about 15 minutes of the game and then I got to one where you have a Plus symbol added to the mix to make things more interesting. I could not figure that one out, so I had to quit.

It's really a very old-fashioned looking game. The music can be turned down in the Options part of the Menu.
