Shovelware is a derogatory computer jargon term that refers to software noted more for the quantity of what is included than for the quality or usefulness. The term is also used to refer to software that is ported from one computer platform or storage medium to another with little thought given to adapting it for use on the destination platform or medium.
The metaphor implies that the creators showed little care for the original software, as if the new compilation or version had been indiscriminately created/ported with a shovel, without any care shown for the condition of the software on the newly created product.
The term "shovelware" is coined with semantic analogy to phrases like shareware and freeware, which describe methods of software distribution.
This pretty much is... don't be fooled by the boxart. At heart it's another stupid 'finding objects' game, with an engine that looks suspiciously similar to the last few. I suspect someone's just licensing out an engine so other people can rapidly slap new interfaces/images on it and try to pass it off as new games.
Since no one's been really saying if the game's any good, I decided to try the game. To my surprise, I kinda like it. It's definitely pretty fun to play if you like stuff like Brain Training or Professor Layton.
