I like it. It's like some kind of sequel to blue print. I just wish that it played more with the shadow and light aspect. Your basically adjusting the figures until it looks like something. Not super challenging or anything so far. The unfortunate thing is you really stop focusing on the object your manipulating and really only keep looking at the shadow. The graphics look amazing and it's something you could show off to a friend to make them envious.

It had been so long I forgot about this game. Let's hope the delay paid off.

Well it seems the delay was well worth the wait. Very polished & a blast so far. I just hope it doesn't get super difficult too fast.
