Let me start off by saying this app does not look like the kind of game I would consider playing. I decided to give it a chance when I saw the screenshots and I love the puzzle mechanic of sliding tiles with a wrapping screen. And let me say, these puzzles do not disappoint! They start off very simple but become increasingly complex and make you think several steps ahead to get 3 stars. And these puzzles are all 100% strategy with no luck or manual dexterity required, just the way a puzzle game should be (in my opinion).
I was not particularly interested in the theme/story, but that really made no difference to me. I was surprised to find that I loved the animal trivia though. Some of those facts are the cutest things I've ever heard.
The only criticism I have is the unforgiving life system. It isn't a problem at first, but once the puzzles are hard enough that you can't consistently get 3 stars on them, you blow through dew (lives) very quickly. Really, you should only lose dew when you fail a level, not any time you don't complete one perfectly. Many casual players will give up on this game for this reason.
So don't be distracted by the cutesy visuals, this is a truly mind-bending puzzle game that will put your strategic prowess to the test.
After a long day of work, I just want something simple to distract me and help me wind down. This simple beautiful game is perfect. The facts in between levels are excellent. It helps with spacial awareness and is just a fun thing to do. The only changes I would suggest are more levels and faster recharging times for the dew.
Clever puzzle mechanic, brutal, punishing, money-grubbing ‘lives’ system
This game consists of what really is a clever puzzle mechanic where you slide pieces around a grid in order to create a ‘pipe’ system for the glowiness to flow through - almost like completing an electrical circuit, and the execution of said puzzle mechanic is really well done.
However - each level has a ‘perfect’ number of moves - a solution that can, later on in the game, only be deduced after much trial and error. Your character (who looks as if he would be remarkably at home in South Park) has a certain number of ‘dew’ - or lives - of which one is subtracted every time a level is attempted.
Unfortunately, you only earn dew back when you’ve scored a ‘perfect’ on a level - and you only get one. This means that later on in the game, you could exhaust all of your ‘lives’ - _while_still_winning_! It’s one thing to penalize a failure, but penalizing a victory, no matter how slight, simply drives away those players who would prefer to enjoy a game, rather then play ‘extortion simulator 2015.’
And those players don’t come back when their lives are full again, because the momentum is lost, the fun is broken, and it becomes boring and feels desperate. And that equates to lost ad revenue.
Play the first 10 levels, then move on to something that actually wants you to play it.
