Played the Flash version some time ago when i first heard of the game's impending release. Great game. Bought!

EDIT: I'm not understanding the purpose of the game key since we can simply replay a level.
Also, an undo button would be great

Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it.

The game key is there so you can play the same level/game at a later time, or send it to your friends to challenge them to try and beat your score/time with the exact same sequence of levels. Unfortunately, I ran out of time implementing this feature. Originally I wanted to make it all automated and social, so you could create ad hoc mini-tournaments with your friends. The manual game key is a quick and dirty compromise which I'm not particularly proud of. Hopefully I can continue working on this and get the original ideas implemented in a future update.

I thought long and hard about whether an undo button should be implemented, and in the end I decided against it. It would only have been useful in move-limited games, and giving the player a way out of mistakes reduces the need to think before you move, which is the whole point of this style of game mode. The other two game styles allow you to just roll cubes around and see what happens, where as this one is a much more thought provoking, almost strategic style of game.

When I first started working on this game, I was at a complete loss as to how to complete each level. The more I played it, the more I discovered the tricks needed to finish a game. Very similar to how I discovered how to complete parts of the Rubik's Cube when I was a kid.

heh, so did I. Beyond getting one side and the top row below it I rarely got any further. That didn't stop me trying though.

Thanks. I should point out that the app information from iTunes is missing three languages: Korean, Russian, and Ukranian. I guess this is just a character encoding issue, but I thought I'd point it out.
