I'm not really getting how this game plays. Is it similar to any other game or is it completely new and original??

As long as you don't have to match three of something I'm sure people will be interested. Hard to tell from the description though. Really, who knows until you try it. What is there to lose but some time and money, call it a learning experience if it fails.

The reason I am worried about the appeal is because it is based on a math concept. However, I believe it will still be very fun. It is based on Eulerian paths, which are networks where you can travel across every edge (side) once without every going on an edge twice. You can google eulerian paths if you want. It is kind of hard to explain.

I'm assuming you will add a tutorial then, I agree with the poster who said to try it and if it doesn't go as expected take it as a learning experience

As a highschooler I was completely lost by this concept. But it seems really cool.

Yes, I will add a tutorial. It sounds confusing at first, but once you get it will be easier. The puzzles won't be extremely difficult, but perhaps somewhat daunting, as it is completely open ended on where to start/how to traverse and many will have multiple solutions.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

BTW, Our first version will likely be very simple and quick. However, we may add twists to newer versions that will add a lot of fun to the game. We will then likely raise the price to $1.99. Any suggestions for what to add to this game (you can look eulerian paths)? If you have further questions about concept of the game, please ask.

is there an online type version of this game we can try? try to get good graphics! Matching colors and such, not some ugly thing.
