Logic puzzle with a interesting game play

Doors & Locks is a game in the vein of other logic games (Minesweeper, Sudoku, and Mastermind to name a few) but Doors & Locks adds a new complexity. Some of the doors lie across multiple rows or columns. This creates for some interesting logic decisions that I haven't seen the logic genre. It's pretty easy play so beginners and kids should enjoy the puzzles and even some of you "genius-types" will have to take some extra time to solve the Skilled to Masters levels. I been playing for two weeks and blazed through the Skilled levels but Expert throw me a curve or two. The Master's level is really making me think and I've only solved 6/40 over the last full week. Thankfully, you tag a lock to keep the state of a door closed or open which helps in remembering solution strategies.

Just picked this up. I really like the concept, but I kind of wish that you'd made a set of handmade/handchosen puzzles and then the random mode as an extra.
The randomizer in this game isn't bad, it's given me a few nice ones so far and I'm only halfway through the game, but it's also given me ones where 90% of the clues are 0s, or full rows. It also produces puzzles which don't have unique solutions, something I really dislike.

It's a cool concept and I'll play this through until I've 'finished' all the modes. I just wish there were packs of specifically chosen non-random puzzles that are designed to be interesting all the time.
