A Visit To The Teddy Factory
7:56 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld's Game Room recently posted a review of Teddy Factory, Toybox Games' colorful puzzle game. As factory workers players must assemble teddy bear parts as they move down a conveyor belt. To succeed they must keep up with the assembly line and meet customer requests for specific bear types. The Game Room gave Teddy Factor 3.5 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

As you make your bears, a robotic claw will pick up the completed teddies and drop them into boxes awaiting shipment. But you’ll also see kids on screen with specific requests—a green bear, for example, or a purple one, or a pink one—and it’s up to you to meet their needs in the time allotted. Do so, and you’ll be awarded extra points. Don’t do it, and it’ll be counted against you at the end of the round. The kids have short attention spans, alas—yellow highlights around their dialog bubbles (graphically showing you which bear they’ve requested) gradually dissipate —if they reach the end, then the child will walk away broken-hearted that the Teddy Factory wasn’t able to fill their order.

Managing to create enough bears in a short enough period of time and failing to disappoint any kids will increase your chances of early promotion and collecting additional awards between levels.

The assembly line doesn’t churn out an even amount of every bear, though, so sometimes you have to partly assemble one color bear while working on another. You must leave enough room on your assembly line so the bear parts don’t reach the end—if they do, it’s game over time.

Teddy Factory is available for purchase as a digital download at Macgamestore.com. To read the rest of the review follow the link below.
