Review

You are a Blind Postman who can only see walls, and can ride on a unicycle! The game is a sliding floor puzzle, where you ride in any given direction until you hit a wall or object. Absolutely simple in concept, but with the puzzle possibility, there comes a lot of brain teasers. 

The game has 50 brain teasing levels to get through and in the levels you need to collect all the letters to be able to fill the mailbox at the very end! Unfortunately there is no story to the game. It’s just about completing the puzzles. The game starts off easy enough. But eventually I needed to think hard on how to finish the level properly. The game introduces obstacles you need to get past. Like glass walls, or bombs. Some levels I had to restart a handful of times just to get the solution right. I really enjoyed it. Though the puzzles were a bit uneven. Some late game puzzles had me thinking for minutes on end. Then the next one was a very easy solution that I got on my first try.

The game plays surprisingly seamlessly as well. Once you reach the exit of the level, it just opens up the next one on a new section of the area. Even if you mess up a puzzle and have to restart, it’s as easy as hitting one button and it immediately snaps back to the start. There is no loading screen whatsoever. There’s even a nice little tune that plays throughout the game. It’s nice and helps you really relax to help think everything through. The game even has a short run time, so you won’t be flexing your brain for too long. I do wish there were some different environments in the game though, instead of just a Tron looking background.

Rating

Rating: 8 out of 10.

Pros:

  • Great Puzzles
  • Relaxing Music
  • Good Length

Cons:

  • No Real Environments
  • Weird Puzzle Balance
  • No Real Story

Summary

I’m not really a fan of puzzle games, but it was fun to be able to flex my brain a little. With a nice little tune to go along with it all. Though I wish there were some different environments to play through. It would’ve been fun to be in a forest, or a cave or something instead of just in Tron.
