Rating Breakdown

This game was given a score of 8.2/10 which is good. Anything above a 5.0 is considered a great game. Below is a breakdown of the elements that were factored into the rating for this game. Even though Waldo's reviews are based on personal opinion, each game's rating follows a strict confidential rubric system for fairness.

User Interface Design (UI)
Game displays some but not all of the following: clean layout design, smooth transitions, animation / motion, good use of a color palette, orginality.
User Experience Design (UX)
Game factored some but not all of the following: simple to use navigation, engaging layout, priority-based design, clear use of icons, internationality / language barriers.
Game Design
Game design is flawless.
Learning Curve
Basic gameplay was easy to figure out, but some instructions were required.
Difficulty Progression
Game difficulty progressed to a certain point but then became either too easy or too difficult.
Playtime Longevity
It is a game that you will want to play for a week, but nothing more.
Sound Design
Music and/or sound effects fit the theme, but did not add value to the game.
Fun
So much fun that you can not stop playing for hours, in fact when you do put it down, it is because of another reason (low battery, need to eat, use bathroom) all you can think about is how fun the game is.
Concept Originality
Uses a concept that has been seen or used before but adds a very unique twist to that concept that makes it original on its own.
Post Production
Post production contains a well written description, screenshots, video and icon design.
