What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Rocknor's Donut Factory is a strategic puzzle game that requires kids to fulfill orders at a futuristic snack bakery run by a friendly robot. In order to get the orders just right, you need to lay out a complicated system of "directional pads" that will steer hovering dough balls through donut molds, ovens, icers, glazers, and other confectionery machines. What starts off very simple, grows increasingly challenging.

Great for kids!

My kids love it. They enjoy watching the donuts as much as they like trying to solve the puzzle. Even if they can't solve it, they have fun.

Is it any good?

ROCKNOR'S DONUT FACTORY starts off in a deceptively simple way. It's pretty easy to guide donuts from point A to point B by placing a few directional arrows. But before you know it, you'll be facing a Willy Wonka-meets-Rube Goldberg set-up that is seemingly impossible to navigate -- impossible, that is, until you pore over all the twists and turns of the labyrinthine factory layout, mull over your possibilities, and then triumphantly hit the power button to watch your yummy donuts get made. It's a sign of a good puzzle game when you see a new level, and say, "Wow, that looks hard!" but still can't wait to try to solve it.
