All versions are on sale for 99 cents, actually, including the one for the Mac.

How come in the TA app this thread doesn't have the nifty link to the game at the top, while the Wolfenstein 3D one in this section does? Something with the formatting of the OP?

Go or No Go for this game? I've heard it's extremely short...

I believe it's episodic, but for a buck, it seems like a very good value if you're into "thinking" games.

Very very very very short.

I was really excited about it, then I hit the puzzles. They were very obtuse, either too difficult or not difficult at all. There are very few "big" puzzles, the one I remember was great, but after that? Nothing really.

It's a pretty game, and there WILL be more content later, but they've been promising that for a year + now, and if it's as short as this, I still fail to see the real value.

The biggest issue for me, outside of the shortness, was the puZzles. They were way too hard for me, but the issue is that for awesome puzzle people who would have a challenge would fly through them. It's not a good middle ground situation.

Now I loved Windosill, which was really short, but I felt it was really smart and unique in its puzzles.

This game is more known for it's visual appeal and unique art style than for the gameplay.
