    "This isn't a good solution as firstly this is not on the iPad, if I can't play it how is that helpful to me? Secondly I don't know how challenging it is so overall this is not a great solution."

    "I was searching for something different and challenging to play on my iPad when I found this great mystery game. It is almost a cross between a novel and game. I spent a lot of time on this game and loved every second of it. It was immersive and difficult, a great choice for anyone looking for a challenge."

    "The Room site is part of a greater number of puzzle games by Fireplace (3 so far) appropriately formatted for the Ipad. They are fairly well award winning. Prices for games range from 99 cents to I think $3.99. All of the comments are rather high which I always look skeptically. Still, their comment stats equate to roughly 90% 4 or 5 stars But Room Three site provides a lot of pertinent info, like system req's, Very engrossing for me. I synced the game to my 60 inch zTv as the larger the screen the more into it I could become. I actually recommend this highly."

    "Arcade pinball machines have always been a challenge for me. INKS is beautifully designed and has reunited me with a game that was never my 1st choice. It's literally like playing a work of art! Sure, there are bugs from time to time, but those normally get fixed pretty quickly."

    "Hitman GO brings the game series to mobile in a unique and fun way. The graphic style is simple but works well for the game. Their is a good learning curve as the puzzles start easy but grow increasingly complex as the game progresses. Hitman GO has plenty of content to enjoy and different ways to play. You don't have to be a fan of Hitman games to like this."

    "This seems to be a good solution to the topic as it seems to be a challenging game for IOS devices. The topic again is vague so it is hard to tell if this would be the best for what they are looking for. "
