I was able to get a code for early play. It's quite a fun little puzzle game. There's not much to it. You have a set amount of steps / health like system to get to the end. You also pick up bombs and items to help dismantle certain objects to get loot / diamond. There's collectibles but I haven't gotten as far as to say there's power ups / loot. I lost interest pretty quick but it's def fun for a few quick sessions if your on the go and got some minutes to kill.

Glad you guys are digging it!

The first few intro levels are definitely very hand-holdy. Definitely too easy for a non-casual gamer, we may have to push the difficulty back up.

Once you get past the second safe room things really start to get interesting & challenging. That blue bar with the bombs on it eventually fills up with all the powerups you can get including bomberman style cross explosions, a bomb that blows everything into coins around you, a magnet that pulls loot to you from across the board, etc.

And you'll need it all as you're chased by mummies, surrounded by slicks of ice, and trying hard to get to the exit in time after tripping the timer.

We set it up to play fairly hardcore if you like, but also made it easy to make small progress in every now and then and still feel rewarded. Good game to come back to now and again for a quick puzzle.
