Happy to see this is out. I loved Toast Time. Going to dig into this after my kids party.

Immediately addictive. I didn't see any ads or IAP's to add anything. But I wanted to throw down for the Medium tip jar. Medium is $2.99. I'm guessing the Small is $0.99 and Large may be $4.99? But don't quote me. And as far as I can see this is just optional to show support.

Thanks you both! If you have some ideas for future-tiles / systems, I'm currently all ears for the first update.

Can we get a way to turn off the "bounciness" and also the slight pulsation every time a move is made, please? All the gratuitous visuals, really, including the houndstooth background animation. This is terribly distracting.

And a minor nitpick, but combining numbers doesn't feel great. A little too much movement is required, IMO, but that's probably a relatively personal thing.

It should prob be, if you want to keep dragging the numbers along you should be able to instead of have to swipe let's say, left then lifting finger to swipe left again

Just starting to play around with this. Trying to figure out if the stacked tiles require guessing or trial and error in memorizing the board when you replay? Seems like a cool game if guessing isn't involved.

Played a few levels this afternoon. I love my puzzles, but the gameplay was basic and altogether too repetitive to hold my interest. I'm sure the levels get harder the further you play, but I wasn't excited enough making 9's to find out.

I was also wondering that, one of the dailys yesterday there was a huge board and tons of stacked tiles, so at that point you just go through the whole board till you get to the end or stuck to find out if you should start over ? There are a lot of ways to handle the stacks so is there multiple solutions or just keep guessing ?
