This game is super clever and more challenging than you'd think. I've 100 percented the first two worlds, and the third world is just really cool.
Yes, it's another puzzle game with the 'tilt' mechanic, but I'm enjoying this a lot more than other games such as Blocko. Sure, the level designs might not be the prettiest, but they are really well thought out with lots of red herrings and traps. You really have to think about the layout of the level before just going in and trying it, which I appreciate in a game like this (in Blocko I just started moving randomly in what seemed roughly like the right way, and often would solve the level within the first three times of doing this).

There is a star system based on moves. Now I've said before that I usually don't like move counter challenges. But for some reason I really like the one here. I usually don't like move counters because they often seem like a cheap way of adding replay value to a puzzle that isn't very interesting and can be solved in many ways. Not so here; often there is only really a single way to get to the finish, and that will give you minimum moves so long as you don't do any obviously wasteful moves.

My favorite touch is definitely the diamonds. There are 3-4 diamonds in each world. They act as like optional goals in certain levels. Sometimes the diamond is just a detour from the normal solution but sometimes reaching the diamond can be quite clever.

Highly recommended!

Well you could just choose not to use them - But yeah I get what you are saying, maybe we could add some incentive for people to complete a level without using hints?
