What’s not to like?

Pandamino is fun, engaging, its hard to find fault with it.
The graphics are great, the storyline is funny and the game delivers on its promise, but some people might find 200 levels a little bit much. Every gamer wants to get to the end of a game. If you are not into long puzzle games but want to get to the point quickly, the game is underwhelming. Sometimes it feels a little like Tetris, but requiring some clever game plan. If you love puzzle games that require strategic and logical thinking, then this would be a great game for you. Overall, if we were to score the game out of 5 it would be worthy of a 4+.
