I wanted to update my previous impressions. Two things:

1) the puzzles get much more engaging once you get past the first set. I'm nearly through the third set and the second and third have been great! Just spent an hour on the treadmill working on set 3. I'm really loving it now.

2) this is a headphones game. With headphones on, you can really appreciate the soundtrack, which has a mellow, mushroomy vibe to it.

Glad I saw this thread, otherwise I would have totally missed this puzzler. Everything Kieffer Bros does has been good to exceptional in my book.

Love all the games from you guys. Shoulda mention this is universal which appeals to many.

Thanks. I will try this later and post some impressions.

I've always loved the sliding block puzzles in the Professor Layton games and Blockwick is that on steroids.

Any idea when the full pay version will be available? I'm not a fan of IAP nickle and dime shenanigans, I'd rather just buy it and future updates all at once.

They are giving away hours of content for free. Then selling many more hours in dollar increments. While I see your point, and would also be wary of spending dollar after dollar (I didn't buy Kard Combat for that reason) I really don't think this is going to turn into an endless dollarfest. So I guess I'm calling shenanigans on your shenanigans. What I'm trying to say is that they are giving large chunks of content at a time. I really don't see it as a nickel and dime thing. While 60 puzzles might sound modest, these suckers get rather challenging, even in the freebie levels, and they only get tougher, so those levels will last awhile.

^^^^^^^ This seconded.

Kieffer Bros have not spammed IAP in the past, no reason to think that they will in the future.

While I agree with the IAP sentiments (I don't like it), kieffers pricing is reasonable to me.

Also, for those that love sliders - Grabarchuk Family has a new Slider - Sliding Tiles that is quite clever as well.

Really enjoying this game. It would be nice if they had a $2 or $3 price that included all present and future levels but hey, I'm totally enjoying the 60 free one and may grab more.
