A computer game worth playing!

Dang, BoingBoing always finds the neatest stuff.

Based on Cory Doctorow's description below, I downloaded the demo of Professor Fizzwizzle. My 7-year-old son and I worked through level after level until he was practically begging to buy the software. He was able to solve many of the levels without my help, but we also got to work together on a few.

It is great logic game, with lots of inventive puzzles and great music. the folks at Grubby Games should be very proud of their work!

You can get a downloadable demo for Windows, Mac or Linux by visiting the Grubby Games web site.

Highly engaging retro puzzle-game: Mario meets Myst

Cory Doctorow: Ryan sez, "We're a new indie game dev outfit, and we've just finished our Professor Fizzwizzle, our first game. It's a 2D platform puzzle game, with a retro cartoony feel to it. If you liked 'The Incredible Machine' you'll probably like this."

Had the *same* experience with the younger boys (Tony and Ty) - I downloaded it and played the early levels, then we three worked the harder ones together. We were transfixed. Last time I had that experience was with the non-game game BallDroppings.

Tony loves making puzzles (made one that took me 35 minutes to solve!) and Ty just loves solving them.

Really addictive, very well built shareware. Highest possible recommendation from me too.
