Would recommend this to any Tetris lover
If Patchwork and Scarabya had a baby it would be this game. We are only playing one episode at a time. The game doesn't recommend this, but it makes each time we play short and sweet and keeps my 8 and 12 yr olds coming back each day. We are all enjoying this one even though it gets a tad repetitive.
