I like this game. The basic puzzle mechanics are simple, seem novel, and the levels buildup from easy to challenging. The level-playing part is pretty well implemented also. On that basis alone is worth checking out for free. Within each level pack, you can see what you've solved and preview all levels, though not play them until you've beaten every level before. (The new levels are transparent.) Also, since the packs are separate, there is a drop in difficulty from the hardest level in 'easy' to the easiest level in 'medium', for example. But this is partially because within a pack, the mechanics change, going from eliminating 2 to 3 to 4 pieces at a time. The background color indicates the number of pieces.

EDIT: Didn't realize the transparency thing showed what levels had been played.
