One of the smartest moves Klei Entertainment has made is create an entire community out of Eets. Not only can you log onto their website and talk with other Eets fans, but you are also able to create your own puzzles and share them with all of the other players. This alone adds another hundred plus levels to the game which keeps the game from getting old. Even if you leave the game for a month or two, chances are you will be eager to log online and try out the newest creations. It's almost mind boggling the levels people come up with for this game, there are some truly challenging puzzles that will have you scratching your head for hours before you finally figure out how to solve it.
If creating your own levels and downloading new puzzles isn't enough for you, then you can also attempt to earn all of the achievements in the trophy room. The trophy room gives you ten different tasks to accomplish in the time you spend with Eets. These achievements are diverse and include things like solving a puzzle without using a single item, light up a certain number of Ginseng Lights, eat 300 marshmallows and collect every puzzle piece the game offers. While it's fun to attempt to earn all of these trophies, some of them are destined to take months of solid playing to accomplish. Between the main levels, the downloadable levels and the trophy room, Eets offers enough replay to satisfy just about every fan of challenging puzzle games.
It would be easy to label Eets a throwback to a much simpler time, the type of game that appeals to the type of gamer not looking for fast action and online multiplayer. But Eets is more than some "casual game" stereotype, it's a solid puzzle game that offers hours of good clean fun. While the major companies are busy rehashing versions of Lemmings and Tetris, Kleihas developed a fully little puzzle game that just about everybody can enjoy. With its lengthy single player mode and the online community, Eets is one game you won't be deleting off your computer any time soon.
PURCHASE INFORMATION: Eets is currently being self published by Klei Entertainment on their website. The game retails for $19.95 and can be purchased in a number of different ways. Take the game for a test drive and see for yourself how much fun this little puzzle game actually is.)

Eets is exactly the type of game I wish the major video game companies would work on. It features a simple concept that is both fun and addictive, plus offers a large community creating new puzzles for you to solve as I write this. Give Eets a chance, you won't be sorry you did!
