App description: "A hidden gem on the app store, Dwelp delivers countless hours of puzzle solving, featuring a clever game mechanic wrapped in a super elegant package."

"Boasting a solid 4.7 average from 5,000+ ratings, it is a must-play for any puzzle aficionado."

Dwelp is an elegant little puzzler with a brand new game mechanic. To complete a puzzle, just link all of the same-colored dots by placing them one near another. There's a catch, though... Once you have connected two dots, the others of the same color become locked in their place.

It's so simple to understand, yet it opens up a whole world of possibilities! Why "only" 120 puzzles, then? Because they were carefully selected from hundreds of others, in order to offer you only the best of the best.

Each puzzle has more than one solution (and some have thousands). Will you find the one that requires the least number of moves? Thats the real challenge! Should you complete it, you will be treated to a select number of puzzles that are bordering on impossibility. But the satisfaction of solving one of those can't be described in words

Designed specifically for the iOS devices and carefully crafted to the tiniest detail, Dwelp brings you puzzle solving at its finest.

Very, very well done. One fo the best puzzle games I've seen in a while.

Beautiful concept. The puzzles are a lot harder than might seem at first sight.

Very elegant implementation, with consistent animations all throughout. I like the small details like how the multiple undo and restart functions are integrated into a single control.

Very nice and surprisingly good puzzle game.

Hmm... Encountered one level so far that seems not doable in the stated optimal steps....

Heh, level 19 right? Same here, I think it's impossible to do in 7 moves.

Apart from that, I've got no major complaints so far apart from the inconsistent difficulty. BAM five levels done in a minute. Then suddenly out of nowhere a stumper that'll take you ten minutes. Then another five levels done in a minute.
Then again, I guess with puzzles of this type that rely on a certain insight (like Zengrams), the difficulty depends on the person.
