- Charming aspect of storytelling with well-developed characters and a fair amount of challenging puzzles, custom level editor, playful cut-scenes will land a few chuckles
- Some stages are not well-designed as a 3D platformer on an isometric plane — which can be a cause for frustration over sensitive controls and lots of trial and error
Overall, Steal Princess is a game that has decent, challenging puzzles, but may leave you falling flat into a bottomless pit as a 3D platformer.

Steal Princess is a puzzle/platformer game with easy-to-learn game mechanics and somewhat challenging puzzles. Each stage has a victory condition which may include killing all enemies or simply obtaining the key to unlock the gate to the next level.
Some enemies have a colour-coded affinity who can only be defeated by using the corresponding weapon found in plain sight or hidden within an enemy or inanimate object. Anise, the notorious thief and reluctant hero of Steal Princess can use her whip to pull enemies aside, swing from designated objects, and activate switches.
The boss fights are not terribly difficult compared to the encounters preceding it. Most of the boss fights require good timing and dodging attacks. The isometric plane makes certain levels more challenging only because it can be difficult to determine the precise height and depth of a jump across a platform, preventing players from seeing anything behind taller objects that are closer to the player's fixed view. Aside from a few of the awkward jumping and swinging puzzles, the game mechanics are simple and straightforward, providing enough variety to keep you playing.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
