In a word, EXCELLENT.

I haven't found myself this hooked on a puzzle game since Portal. And before that, possibly Lemmings. Dead simple concept, but countless variations and twists upon. Surprisingly good music, cartoony-but-loverly graphics, and some cheesy humour behind it all.

$20 on Steam (only 70MB download), probably going to hit stores soon if it hasn't done so already, and no DRM. Seriously, you owe it to yourselves to check this game out.

K buying and downloading will play tomorrow. Hopefully it is worth 20 bucks but it looks like it might only be a $10 game.

My friend is playing it on his Wii right now (it released on Wii Ware as well). The music is awesome, and the game has a certain awesomeness to it that makes it worth it.

Yeah just played a bit to try it out and I don't want to stop!! Ah if only humans didn't need to sleep. Think of all the possibilities.
