"Go play until your eyes bleed!"

It's a simple game that frustrates my eyes. Somehow I like it (and it's FREE)!

I've given this a try yesterday and it's a bit of a challenge on the hard level with giant boards.

There's patterns of similar looking characters, like 2 and Z or I and 1. You have to find the symbol that's there only once.

It made me a bit dizzy after awhile. I had some fun with it.

I have to agree - this is a lot of fun for such a simple and potentially headache-inducing premise! Well done!

Does anyone know (or has an idea) if the Free Play is procedurally generated, or did the developer specifically designed stages?

I think the levels are randomly generated from the limited patterns it has. I thought the M-W levels were among the easiest, even easier is finding the dot in the O.

Hey guys - I'm the developer for this game. Seriously, thanks for checking it out. Didn't think it would get any interest.

All of the levels are randomly generated. Time trial gives you specific letters, but the hidden one is always random.
