Games looks great judging by the screen shits..but not as great in video.
The gameplay looks way too slow.. The ice blocks move at snails pace and most games with slicing have better level design.. Like it'll have ONE solution like once you know how to complete the level, the slicing part should be easy.. It should be the puzzle/level design which is the challenge ..where as this game seems to have many possible ways to pass and the hardest part is actually slicing, rather than the puzzles..you couldn't even call it a puzzle game as the difficulty of the game seems to be just getting the ice to fall where you want it, slid call it an arcade game, or strategy at best.. Puzzler: NO!
It's a shame cause the gamevactually looked awesome and has a great appearance and concept..but execution lets it down.it's just the slow ice movement and level design really.

Thanks for your comment, Tannorexic! Well, the basic idea behind the game is that you can solve a level in many different ways. Only one solution? This sounds uninteresting. It's the challenge to find the PERFECT solution, to collect all acorns with as less slices as possible in the shortest time. This all is reflected within your score in the leader-boards.
Regarding the slow moving ice objects you might be right, lets wait for some other opinions. The problem with faster physics is that the game will become much harder very quickly. The video only demonstrates the first few levels. They are meant to be easy. However, doing this change is only a small update.
