The Playtime Experience

The Micro Q-Bot Game is easy to play. Right on the plastic housing the start point of the game is clearly labeled. Once you direct the metal ball to this point, you can move the box and Bot around in an attempt to guide the ball through the maze and to the end point. There are 33 challenges in this small game and it is sure to have your ears smoking before you make it through them all.

Things I Didn't Like

There weren’t really any instructions with the game. I am not really sure how where to define the 33 challenges. I suppose there is that many combinations but I would have loved at least a diagram showing where they were and how they work.

Appropriate Ages

The Micro Q-Bot Game is recommended for players 8 and older. I don’t see why younger players can’t play with the toy, but the puzzle aspects may be lost on them.

Final Note

I can easily see why the Micro Bot is one of this year’s finalist for “toy of the year”. It is compact, full of fun and comes with a small price tag. I think this ranks right up with our good friend Rubik’s cube and is sure to be a hit for years to come. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_Rfq3Jjs6c (You may also like: Perplexus Original Puzzle Game for Kids and Adults)
