Description of The Brainies

Tiny Sweek is a nice puzzle game starring the Skweek characters. Starts very easy but gets a bit more challenging in later levels. The goal of the game is to get every Skweek to the pad with the same color as the Skweek. You control these critters by hitting the space bar when the cursor box is over a Skweek, and then send him in the direction you want. Similar to Lemmings, the Skweeks will blindly walk in that direction until they either hit another Skweek, a wall, or any other solid obstacle.

Overall, a nice puzzler that won't dethrone Lemmings from the cuteness pedestal, but definitely has more than enough charm on its own and challenges to occupy even the most jaded puzzle meistros. Thumbs up!
