Editors' Review

If you like difficult puzzles, Callisto_5 may be right up your alley, but if they give you a headache or you're easily frustrated, this game will have you banging your head against a wall in no time.

The game's interface is bright and colorful, but it features annoying sound effects that thankfully you can turn off. Callisto_5 doesn't make a whole lot of sense at first glance, so we consulted the game's built-in hints and instructions, but these didn't make much sense either, even after reading them several times. We couldn't determine the object of the game. The game board has tiles arranged in a square pattern. These are all the same size but are different colors and have different embossed shapes on them. It seems like the goal is to arrange each row of tiles so that the backgrounds are the same for each row of tiles, but we really weren't sure. We tried moving tiles around this way and that, but we still couldn't tell if we were really getting anywhere. Users who have more patience with puzzles than we do might get further with the game, but we got frustrated and gave up. We wish the instructions were more illuminating.

Callisto_5 is free and installs and uninstalls with no problems. If you can make sense of the game's instructions, which were just as puzzling as the game itself, you might enjoy playing it. Some puzzles are supposed to be vexing and difficult, but this one is needlessly confusing.
