This one-player puzzle game is a set of constraint-satisfaction logic puzzles -- you're given a set of tiles with animals and foods on them, and a grid arrangement to put all the tiles on. The arrangements are pretty reasonable to keep track of: dogs shouldn't be next to cats, mice shouldn't be next to cheese, ant spaces shouldn't contain food, and so on. There's only about 8 rules to keep track of, and they're all of the "can't be adjacent" form.
This puzzle is actually pretty good, where there seems to be a pretty decent variety of puzzles. Unlike a lot of puzzle game sets, the hard ones are decently challenging while not being impossible. The physical components of the game are servicable but not of particularly good quality -- recessed plastic pieces with colored stickers is about all you're getting here.
