Thanks for the post, downloading now to see what it's like, but the art style looks good from the video and pictures. Also like the rhyming video.

It is, just played up to level 26 so far. It does have an energy system which I guess is part of its way to make money. Although it's not that bad as if you complete a level you get back the energy it cost to enter and as I'm likely to play until I get stuck or run out of energy then set it down for a while the system won't affect me.

The gameplay seems to keep me playing, generally I'm not a big fan of most puzzle games but something about it makes me want to play more. It introduces different elements as you go along and levels vary a little with the goal and challenge. You earn gold as you play which let's you unlock costumes which give your bear a boost and alter the way he plays. I've only got one so far though nearly enough for the second.

I hate candy crush but know people that play it...even my parents do and I see similarities with the games just basically on the map layout and how it displays who's up to where and then with the IAP system and limited turns. Still I'd say it's well worth trying.

You can tell from screenshots if you find any. Basically your in a room which is divided by squares and you can move up, down and diagonally but when you chose a direction to move you roll in that direction until you hit a wall. Hence the puzzle aspect as pictures are placed in various locations and you have to work out how to get them all in a certain number of turns. As you play through the game it adds more obstacles like visitors, security guards and spikes I know there's more to come I just haven't reached yet.

You also get timed levels with no turn limit, some that are timed and have a turn limit, sometimes to destroy all the visitors sometimes to avoid them and only get paintings. So far I picked up a hat that increases roll speed 50% and a pirate hat that reduces gold for pictures destroyed but increases gold in chests you find.

Your a bear and you go into the art exhibit to destroy the art.
