As a kid I used to be fascinated by magnets and if I was given a couple of them I would be amused for hours, discovering what you can do by trying to connect the different poles.

As an adult, I'm still pretty intrigued, so this game looked like it would be right up my street - and it is!

"Original" and "intelligent" are the two words that best sum up Magnets for the Pocket PC.

Based on a popular puzzle game from a French magazine, the basic purpose of this one is to arrange a series of magnets on a grid so that two positive poles or negative poles never touch each other.

The number of positive and negative poles is clearly displayed next to each row and column.

What's more, no 2x2 square can be fully occupied, making this a baffling challenge that is surprisingly addictive.

It's all a little confusing to start with, but luckily the game includes some useful visual help, lending you a hand when you're first trying to get to grips with your magnets.

Graphically, the game isn't much to look at and uses only four different colours. This is only a minor gripe though, because the sheer imagination of the game makes it one that you won't be able to put down for a long time.

Magnets is a game originally proposed in the French magazine "La Recherche", at the end of 2003. The developer has automated the game on the Pocket PC, with a random generator to get more grids to find.
