I beta tested this game and it's really good. I enjoy puzzle games and this is a whole other creature because of all the action and dynamic elements in the levels. Fantastic game!

Nice game, but it has one big and two medium sized annoyances:
  • Why oh why do you turn off user music if game music is turned off?
  • Every time you start the game, it assumes you want to play Level 1-1. Wouldn't it make more sense to start off on the hardest uncompleted level.
  • You keep all of the levels locked until you have completed the level before. This means that if I ever get to a level I cannot solve, I am done with the game. Wouldn't it make sense to (for example) start off with all the levels in a stage unlocked, and then unlock the second stage when 75% of the first stage was completed? Or even just always have all the levels unlocked?

Other then that, its a pretty good game. I would also like to see the 2x time multiplier become a 3x, since generally, when I use it, I want the game to zip along to the end of the level.

Regards, Michael

I beta tested as well and can say that most if it not all of your concerns Michael will be addressed in the future. I think Apple's painfully long approval process may have had a factor in its release prior to the addition of the adjustments.

Glad to hear it. I hope they address this one too. Its very frustrating to get stopped in the middle of a game because half of it is locked behind some arbitrary barricade.
