I highly recommend this game.

I have been playing the iPhone version of the game, and I found the puzzles to be very well thought out but extremely difficult. This is a very good variant of Sobokan, and the mechanics is surprisingly deep.

The game is a port of a PC version. It is fairly well done. The control (for the iPhone version) is somewhat funky. There is a bit of a lag, and the control sometimes fails to register the correct touch. However, I had been in contact with the developer who said that this control issue is being investigated and corrected. The developer is very responsive to suggestions, a characteristic that I appreciate as a gamer. The HD version, according to the developer, fixed the annoying save bug that I reported previously for the regular version.

Well deserve a buy for any die hard puzzle fan looking for a challenge.

Thanks for the mini-review

As far as I'm aware, these input problems are only an issue on the standard iPhone/iPod-Touch version of "Puzzle Moppet", and not in this HD version.

Very difficult game, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Takes a while to get used to the controls - which at times seem too sensitive and at other times seem a bit unresponsive. Graphics are excellent and as noted above, very well thought out. A worthy addition for puzzle fans.
