@Corbie --- Great Review. The game is better than I was expecting it to be. As for the topic of others comparing WiiWare games to big budget games and the quality... Millions of R&D money vs Thousands... It's not even a fair fight. I love these "cheap" games for what they are. Quite a few of them are fun and in some cases innovative. I'm enjoying games like Art of Balance, World of Goo, Pop, etc over the retail games now (same goes or PSN and XBLA games). I hope that you guys who are on the fence give Art of Balance a chance.

I took a chance on getting this. It's MUCH better than I thought it would be. I wasn't sure if the physics would hold up in theory like they appeared to be on the promo videos for the game.
It's a fun game! It requires some thought on some of the puzzles. Skill and Luck are both a factor in the game. Coop is drop in which is awesome. The head to head is pretty great too.
Once you get all the pieces set up you have 3 lights at the bottom that need to all light up green (takes 3 seconds). You need to have your blocks at least up in the air in order for it to count. For example, everything could start coming down, but as long as you get the 3rd green light it doesn't matter.
I know it won't happen, but I'm already hoping for a sequel or add on levels. And I've only complete the first of 4 worlds.
This is one of the best "puzzle" games I've played on WiiWare.

I was enjoying the game until after the first area, The Garden. Then the controls started to frustrate me. Also some of the objects not doing anything sucks. For instance. A Winch or a Tow Motor. They did nothing. You can only pick them up and throw them. I know the game is about imagination, but it's not that hard to have practical in the game as well. What's the point of allowing a Winch to pull a rope that can be attached to a car or another object when the Winch is just another useless object?

I hope that the next version allows all these objects to interact how they should in theory. I hope that it makes it to PSN or XBLA and they can make more of the objects actually do what they are supposed to do.
