    is this worth it? I thought the demo was kinda not very fun. :) Yes I get the creative mojo and stigma behind the game so don't pull out the knives or anything but does it have an experience or replay value to constitute a purchase?

      I loved the experience, but the replay value was minimal to me.

      it's 10 bucks. it's easily worth 20.

      I wasn't sure about it from the demo but took the risk and was handsomely rewarded. It's a fantastic game and the puzzles get better and better as you progress.

      If you absolutely hated the demo then I guess you won't like the rest of the game. But if you liked it, or didn't mind it and thought you might enjoy it if it got better and better, then I doubt you'll be disappointed, especially at this price.

      While the replay value isn't tremendous, the FIRST play value is so worth it. It blows your mind. You really find yourself thinking in brand new ways. You will feel your brain making fresh neuron connection types it's never tried to before. That makes it fresh. Easily worth $20 just for that. $10 is a steal.
