This looks like a fun puzzle game, but the puzzles are deceptively repetitive: you literally play the exact same puzzles for hours.

Ziro is an enjoyable and somewhat novel puzzle game that has suprisingly good sound design, intuitive gameplay and a huge variety of puzzles to play though. The graphics are also quite well done, allowing a 3D pan of the playfield with the right click button. Both the Steam Overlay and widescreen modes are supported. The only criticism I have is the somewhat bizzare occasional splash screens that dole out life advice. Seriously, the game tries to be your therapist or at least comes across as a political activist. That minor gripe aside, I found myself quickly engaged by this title and a little hard to put down. For casual puzzle gamers, Ziro is an excellent option.

Enjoy stale, repetitive puzzles? Occasional "save the planet" tips about as intuitive as wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle? Zero plot investment? Completely arbitrary achievements? Count me in!

... Wait.

A pretty good puzzle game. It's all math based with you eliminating dice by putting them next to each other and combining them. It's a pretty straight puzzler in that there's only really one way to solve each puzzle but there's enough flexibility there to alleviate too much frustration.

Plenty of content but it's all gated which is a little annoying i.e. you must solve each puzzle before you reach the next. No skipping puzzles - nothing. That means you can get really stuck which is where I am at. No puzzle game should stop you dead in your tracks. It should have a learning curve introducing new mechanics along the way and then applying them but there shouldn't be huge leaps and, if there is, then it should provide you with some out to keep progressing.

Any worth it for a few dollars if you're a puzzle fan. Check out some videos if this makes no sense at all.

Ziro's pretty slick and certainly better than its strange edutainment agenda would suggest. Slide some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ numbers around and do some math as well. It's good, and gets very difficult when you have to cope with multiple possibilities and combinations that might be correct -- but might not.

Who knows, maybe you'll even learn how to conserve energy by "cooking your own roast rather than driving to the pub on Sundays" as one of the game's helpful tips suggests. But I doubt it.
