Game Review (written by Cellfangirl) Added on: 2 Feb 2007
I remember playing Super Solver: Gizmo and Gadgets when...when I was little. Which, truthfully, wasn’t too long ago. Ten, nine years ago, actually. But I loved that game. I had so much fun putting together the vehicles and beating Morty. The puzzles were easy at first, but after awhile they got harder. There is still one even now that is hard for me to get.
The graphics aren’t that great, but it was made awhile back so that’s understandable. Thankfully, the controls are simple. Arrow keys to move, duh, space bar to throw banana's at Morty's Monkeys (who are constantly trying to thwart you and steal your building parts) and, well, that about it, really. The game also gives you a blue print of each vehicle before you start searching for parts, which are scattered throughout all the factories. Its perfectly possible to play without looking over the blue prints, but it makes it so much easier if you do.
What makes the game interesting are the puzzles you must beat to open doors. Pretty much all the doors are locked with puzzles, courtesy of Morty. Solving these puzzles is the only way to get to the parts that you need to build your vechicle.
The puzzles are simple at first, having you match up electrical energy, mechanical energy with pictures and arranging magnets and putting pictures to together. Later on your presented with extra things in the puzzles. More magnets, more complex patterns to put them in, more factors to take into consideration. It really helps you think and gets your brain going.
Once you beat Morty in a race, you get a neat little trophy put up in your mechanic room. There were the three divisions to compete in. Airplane racing, car racing, and downhill racing. And, like in real life, as you get higher in levels, your trophy gets bigger as well. Of course, Morty gets better as time progresses. He's not much of a threat, but if you do not pay close attention to your blueprints and get the best parts available, you will end up loosing. And, of course, that is sort of the...backwards idea of the game. You want to win and shove it in Morty's face. Cause he's small and weird and no one likes him, except his monkeys.
Its a great game and I would recommend it to anyone. Its especially great for kids.
