Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Balcassa is sort of like an advanced Rubik's Cube and slider puzzle, with more options. Move the colorful cubes around to match colors, put numbers in order, or more, but make sure the bottom right hand corner is empty at the end. In some games, the position and the rotation both need to be correct. Sound easy? Not quite. Players can choose options from "Gentle Warm Up" to "Olympic Trial" depending upon how hard they feel like thinking that game session.
Is it any good?
Don't play BALCASSA if you're not prepared to think hard. If you are, the challenge is fun and addicting. Rolling, rotating, organizing, and re-organizing the cubes in this game will require using different thinking skills, sort of like competing in a mental triathlon. Similar to the Rubik's Cube, this is one of those games that kids will either love or hate, depending upon their temperament for mental challenge and patience in puzzle solving.
