The core gameplay mechanics are sound, and work well for the most part, they can be a little cumbersome for some of the more minute tasks such as making walls with lava near vegatation, which almost always ends in a fire, and very upset villagers. The challenge modes are definitely trial and error, but feel very rewarding, there are however a few glitched challenges involving putting out fires, the levels end as soon as they start, this maybe an isolated issue but it's happened a few times, hopefully there is an update for this soon. All in all, if you are looking for something to take up a few days From Dust is a good addition to your collection.
