If you also set a star rating, the star rating won't be shown anywhere but will still be used when calculating the game's overall score on Escape The Review.
Classic game. The clever twists on familiar puzzles, quirky tone, inventive uses of paper, and startling affordability make it a must-play. (Fun fact: NPH was one of the first 100 to finish and make it onto the leaderboard.)
Solid beginner puzzling experience with a delightfully whimsical design aesthetic. The puzzles were all fairly easy and fun, but the game fell flat for me on the rather uninspired meta.

Rest assured I’m looking forward to returning to the incredible world of Hincksland in some of Bluefish Games’s other puzzles in the future, for example the Hincks Gazette. But until then, The Curious Elevator of Mr. Hincks is a game well deserving of all it’s praise and accolades and a great price to boot.

(...) That being said, let me be clear on this: if you were to buy one of those slightly-expensive, order-by-mail boxed games, I think it should be this one.
