Levers is an interesting game by Vectorpark that uses physics to create increasingly complex challenges for players. The game is deceptively simple when you first start. The graphics are done in bold shapes and colors much like cutouts. There are sound effects from the very start although no background music is present. The first screen you see has water flowing along the bottom. You hear the sounds of waves crashing. A single arm with hoops on each end is balanced at the top center of the screen much like an empty mobile. Gameplay starts right away without any menus or credit screens.

Bart Saw Game is a point-and-click adventure or puzzle game based off The Simpsons characters. One of the first things you will notice is that the animations and graphics do not match the series as much as they could. They are more stylized than normal. They also include features that can make the characters look a little out-of-place. Additionally, the animations are jumpy and not smooth at all. It can be hard to tell when you are watching a scripted animation or when the game is waiting for you to react. There is dark music in the background as you play although it does not go well with bright Simpsons characters.
