Default Puzzle Retreat - new block sliding puzzler (by The Voxel Agents)[Universal]

Hey there!

Our super minimal puzzle game just launched. It takes inspiration from Sudoku and Sokoban to make something completely new! You'll play for a bit, but get lost in the puzzles for hours.

While I suck at these games, and will probably get totally stumped 15 minutes in, I think I'm going to have to buy this. Seeing how dedicated you are, plus seeing how much fun my daughters have had with the Train Conductor 2 game, paying a buck to support you guys seems like a no brainer

I bought the game on the strength of the intriguing content found on the links you provided. Good stuff, indeed. I wish you guys the best of success with your new game!

This game is terrific. I love it. Played through the welcome pack last night. Had a lot of trouble with puzzle 42 but it finally clicked.

iCloud sync doesn't appear to be working for me, though. I launched the app on my iPhone this morning (after playing through the welcome pack on my iPad) and none of the puzzles appear to be complete. FYI, I'm sure the same iCloud account is being used on both, and iCloud definitely works with other apps.

As would be expected coming from the Train Conductor developers, this is fantastic!

Minor suggestions: Game Center support and some simple background music.

How long does it take to complete the first 24 puzzles? About 15 minutes?
