    This IS a great game. Wonderful graphics, great gameplay, even a nice soundtrack. Cons are in my eyes – the text is sometimes to small to read (Puzzlemania had the same problem, another font helped), but if you played the game on PC, you already know what it says – go get it, it´s worth the money and a great new side of time management games.
