The Best Game In a While

The game involves every feature you can think of. The design is beautiful!! Also this is a great game to sit down and relax during the night. If you don't like very big puzzle games I would not recommend this gamers you, but if you love puzzles that are simple yet complex than this is perfect for you. I'm surprised this is actually this cheap being the game has numbers and numbers of puzzles! Now that I have completed the game I would so recommend this to anyone!!

Thank you so much for dropping the price, I've been waiting years for it to drop (I use Appticker)! This would make a great Apple TV app (with cloud save)! I just gifted it to my bro as well. Ever thought of incorporating a level builder? It would be easy to implement, and would initiate organic sharing between your customers. Maybe then even add in a daily user created puzzle, to keep people coming back?

Developer Response ,

Hi, hope you enjoy the game! Thanks for your suggestions. Unfortunately a level editor is a lot more work than you're suggesting it is, so it's not something we're likely to do. If you're hungry for more puzzles you'll just have to try some of our other games :P

This is a beautiful puzzle app that is enjoyable to play. There are 5 achievements including a metapuzzle at the end that made the game doubly enjoyable. One complaint is that I wish the achievements were less cryptic. Overall, this game is definitely a recommend for those who enjoy puzzle apps.
