11+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. You need to be able think in multiple directions and consider the affects of time on both space and movement.
The levels get harder quickly and there is no difficulty setting. But the difficulty is in working out the solution rather than reaction time. Once you know the answer you can execute it in under a minute.
You can rewind time at any point in the game, which is part of the play mechanic. This means you can always undo your last move, although some items in the game resist this rewind feature so you sometimes have to reset a room.
While the game does not require you to hold down the rewind button, there are times you may need to rewind a large number of moves at once, and holding the button down is the fastest way to do so.
