Early impressions...

Looks like Dungelot, plays way different, but not a bad thing.

Tap to move, but level based and makes you really think. 3-stars if you complete within the set amount of moves.

So far loving it! It plays different than I imagined, but better than I initially thought. No IAP's (as far as I can see) and more of a puzzler.

Found this (old) trailer...

Reminds me on Dungelot. A lot.

Thanks! I thought it looked a bit more like a puzzler than a straight-up rogue lite. I might go in on this...

Yes, more puzzle oriented than rogue like, haven't delved too far, but you earn coins and gems, not sure why they are used for but interested in finding out.

Very entertaining game, I'm enjoying and the price feels like I'm stealing from them.

I am very intrigued by this game, as the trailer looks like that the game is more of a puzzler than a typical rogue-like grinder.

JoshCM, since you present the developer, can you explain a bit on whether or not each level has an "optimal" solution? Is the optimal solution always the one that uses the fewest steps? How much of a margin does the game give on the step counts for scoring 3 stars? How do I know if my solution is "truly" the best possible solution (that is, does the game makes this known to the player)? What is the advantage of solving a puzzle not optimally (for example, trade off with getting more loot for upgrades, etc.)?

Is it possible, with care, to finish all 100 levels without dying even once? I am asking this because if the core game mechanic is a puzzler than the game ought to be solvable without dying.
