App description: An amazing puzzle of mystery. Providing hours of entertainment.
MysticGlyph, a puzzle of mystery wrapped in a riddle, recreated from the journals of Dr. J. S. Wyndham. A challenging puzzle where a single move can affect the final solution. Engage your perception and intellect in discovering the true meaning and purpose of the secrets that it holds.

From the Journals of Dr. J. S. Wyndham:
London, September 23, 1883
I have returned from my appointment with
the curator of the British Royal Museum. My
suspicions were confirmed about the
authenticity of the recently acquired
Egyptian papyrus collection. They are indeed
forgeries, however during my visit I was
introduced to a curious device, donated by a
well traveled, though deceased patron. The
device consists of numerous interlocking
metal slates composed of enameled tiles
that, when re-assembled, create four glyphs
of an unknown alphabet. I can only imagine
the clockwork of springs, gears and magnets
that allow the tiles to move in the way they
do. I requested permission to return to further
inspect the device and am excited to write, the
curator has graciously conceded.

BarrowWest's comments:

As a puzzle fanatic, I think this game looks fascinating. Hurry up with the codes, please. ;-)
Otherwise, I may have to break down and buy it!

This looks really interesting ! I'm going to hope for a code too, if I can manage to snag one when you put them up. Otherwise, I may have to dip in my iTunes account.

Good luck with the game !!!

I am about 10 levels into this game. It starts out to be rediculously easy, but then it makes the jump into deviousness and gets to be a really fun brain teaser. There does not appear to be any level selection and my guess is that the only indication of where you are in the game is the time on the clock that is flashed before each new level. I like the introductory story and I hope this continues as I progress. The graphics are not flashy but look nice and the controls are simple and responsive. I look forward to reporting more impressions as I get further.

Edit: I just noticed the Replay button allows access to the earlier levels and I am on level 16. IMO, this is where the game really begins.

This is a good game for puzzle fans. I agree with djflippy about the difficulty. The first levels are quite easy, but stick with it and pretty soon, it becomes challenging. I'd love to see a little more polish on the graphics, but overall, it's a great concept for a puzzle, and it will keep you entertained for a while. It's definitely worth the price of admission !

By the way, I would have loved to leave a comment in iTunes, but it won't let me. I gather Apple is no longer letting people do reviews if they got the app for free. I think that's ridiculous when they apply it as a blanket policy. I think that if someone has a number of published reviews on iTunes (say 50 or a hundred) for apps they have bought, Apple should let them also review apps that were offered for review. Otherwise, it will be even harder for small developers to get the word out about their apps.
