I Heart Geeks! (DS)

 

Efficiency be damned. When confronted by a balloon that needs to be popped, you could just squeeze the darn thing until helium bursts forth from an open orifice, but where would the fun be in that? By constructing an elaborate machine complete with...

I Heart Geeks! Review

 

I Heart Geeks lets you make some incredible machines, but a lack of creativity dampens the satisfaction.

Lots of different puzzles and items ; Solving a tricky puzzle is empowering

Most of the items have appeared in countless similar games ; Help system has lots of problems ; No way to skip a level if you're stuck

The single-player game stretches on for more than 100 mind-bending stages, and you can challenge a buddy to some head-to-head action on those same puzzles if you want to prove just how fast you are. It's a weak multiplayer mode considering that the...

I Heart Geeks- NDS

 

I Heart Geeks is simple, does not take itself too seriously, is educational, and fun. It reminds me of “The Incredible Machine” from 1992 but with a bit of a plot-line added.

Geeks strike back!

 

While many of us were (and some still are) belittled for our geekdom during our youth, as adults, geeks are the new cool. So when I Heart Geeks, the first game to come from SevenOne Intermedia, hit my desk, my initial thought was some kind of Japanese...

Loads of well-designed puzzles ; Diverse difficulty ; Cute visuals

Some awkward piece-placement mechanics

The replay value may be minimal, the theme may be seveerly stereotyped, and the Mark Eko tie-in may be completely unecessary, but the core physics puzzling is rock solid. Some are so easy you won’t even bat an eye, while others will leave you with a...
