It's not really my kind of game but I can see people enjoying this casual puzzle game. Graphics are okay and there are plenty of puzzles to solve.

Subjective: ★★★☆☆
Objective: ★★★★★ — Graphics: ★★☆ — Content: ★★★ — Handling: ★★★

Fun puzzle game, where you have to put faces toghether in a grid, and try to make the the happier possible, Colorful and light, a great game to relax and have fun. Has a good in game storyline too.

Casual puzzle game, place icons in a grid and get the best score by making combinations.
Good graphics, decent music (though it does get repetitive very fast).

6/10

Not recommended for achievement hunters due to tedious and unfun last achievement.

From it's store page, this game looks really charming and appealing. It has very positive reviews and an adorable trailer. I bought it for the fun of the puzzles and because I liked the art style. However, by the end of it, I found it to be tedious and unlikable. As someone who strives for 100% on games that I enjoy playing, I open this game now only in pursuit of the last achievement. Here's what stands out from my experience:

Pros
  • Cute art style, fairly unique
  • Customizable avatars for each of the puzzle pieces
  • Interesting and challenging puzzles with many variations
  • Easy to use menus and settings
  • Skippable cutscenes

Cons
  • P.I.T.A. to get the last achievement (50/50 Infinite Nerd Drop - even the developer has acknowledged this one was bad taste on their part)
  • Not enough gameplay to warrant the $6.99 base price
  • Lacks replayability - no settings or difficulty modifiers

If I were writing this review earlier in the game, I might have recommended it. There were a lot of good parts to it, but it was not satisfying overall from a completionist perspective. Girls Like Robots has left a bad taste in my mouth that I could not, in good conscience, wish unto others. Looking at the global achievement stats and seeing that only 17% of players have even finished the first act, I think that others have also had a negative experience. If you like to buy games and then not play them through, feel free to add this one to your collection.

This is one of the most insane puzzle games I've ever played. The mechanics are simple: you have a grid of X by Y squares, place your pieces down in a way that everyone likes who they're seated beside (the basic rule of the game: Girls like Robots. Girls don't like Nerds. Nerds like Girls, Robots, but not other Nerds).

Except then suddenly you're learning that June actually really likes Bugs. But Bugs don't like Girls. And Ben likes June, so make sure to leave a space near June for Ben so he can ask her out, and...

The game's complexity builds slowly, and it comes through adorably quirky cutscenes. It also has 3 tiers of medal per stage, but in a twist I absolutely adore, "gold" does not mean "perfect" - it just means "the highest". This is one of those games where the designer didn't go through and mathematically 'solve' every stage and expect you to do the same, and that goes a long way for me in saying "This is the kind of game devoted to fun first, humor second, and everything else is just a bonus".

Plus, if you score enough golds and things, you unlock alternate silly modes. I'm waiting to see what Nerd Drop is.

edit: Infinite Nerd Drop is everything I wanted from the name.
