Ask yourself this: Do you mind when answers lurk just beyond your fingertips? Will you be able to handle the sleepless nights? Is your threshold of mental pain higher than most? Can you force your brain to think in ways it never had to think before? One hundred puzzles that sense light, motion and weakness.
Nemesis Factor is a collection of 100 puzzles that change in difficulty as you progress. To complete a puzzle, simply figure out how to light the buttons in order. Use as few moves as possible to increase your score. But be warned: Finding the correct order requires knowledge in any number of areas, including mathematics, science, music and general logic. Complete all 100 puzzles and earn bragging rights to which few can lay claim.
I got a Nemesis Factor for Christmas a few years ago, as soon as I opened it I was doomed to spend all my time working on it. I got almost to the end when I broke it (wasn't looking where I was going and tripped). Now I'm looking everywhere for one but most places are constantly sold out or on back order. This truely is the best puzzle out there.
Once you start playing this, you can't put it down. It becomes an obsession, and you're compelled to keep working to solve the puzzles. This game requires patience and is not for someone who doesn't like challenges. Just when you think you have a puzzle solved you realize there's more to it than you expected. I love the way it keeps drawing you to it to conquer the code. I started playing someone else's game over the holidays and now I'm looking all over for my own.
every since my game quit working,I fell lost i lived on this game if anyone is willing please,im lost.This game realy chalenges your brain.It's the best game i ever had,or played!please put them back on the shelf. give the kids a way to use their brain for something besides violence!!!!
This is truly the best puzzle ever. Even though i have had it for a pretty long time I have only managed to get to level 14 but anyway, a very fun puzzle. For a very long time I have had it without knowing what it was until I turned it on. This is not only addicting but most importantly fun. Anyone that has money to spare should invest in this. It is money well wasted.
This is a very challenging game. It can also be very frustrating. My fourth grade students will stick with it for days just trying to beat my score. It teaches strategy, logic and determination. Not for those who give up easily. Because it is meant for 'higher-level' thinkers, it is somewhat hard to find in stores.
This game has been fun and challenging for us. The only two problems are that 1) Some of the puzzles simply rely on a table of data that they made up; there is NO logic to them and 2) There is NO battery indicator that tells you that the power is getting low. Ours was working fine and then it just reset everyone to zero because the batteries were low (not dead).
Very clever device that is more than meets the eye. I found it very difficult to put down until I had completed the whole thing. While it provided hours of fun (15+ hours, I would estimate), I now find it has little use other than as a decorative object. Definitely a worthwhile investment for anyone who likes puzzles.
First, let me say that I like a lot of the puzzles in this little box. Some have a very clever design.
What I don't like is that some puzzles are based on flipping the little BB around inside of the unit in the right way. This wouldn't be a bad thing but the device for testing the orientation is cheap and inaccurate. This requires several trys after a solution is known. I'm not sure how others without coordination could get past these puzzles.
There's a pattern here--in fact, there are a hundred of them to keep you engrossed for quite a while! Five arcs of color may wink, or an electronic voice may speak, to give you clues. Press the arcs in the correct sequence and they'll light up from bottom to top, rewarding you with a flashing rainbow and happy musical notes. Then it's time for the next conundrum. A maximum of 10 points may be awarded per puzzle. For really tricky puzzles, you can push a (panic?) button below the colors to give you a straightforward clue, but your score will decrease. Between bouts of solving, you can store the scores and current puzzles for up to four people. Are you up to the challenge?
