This inventive puzzler sadly disappeared from stores in less than 6 months after its release. The premise is simple: try to get 21 wind-up toys over to your opponent's side before he can do the same to you. The difficulty lies in the unique abilities of toys, e.g. Clucketta the chicken can lay tiny wind-up chicks, and Handy can wind up toys that wind down. A fun and charming game that combine arcade reflexes and puzzle elements into a very captivating experience. The game is essentially a fantastic variant of paper-rock-scissors, and can be considered a modern update of EA's classic Archon, but with a more cartoony feel. Thumbs up!
