Cheers for the post This game was a bit of an experiment to force me out of my comfort zone. Not sure it's one for the Touch Arcade crowd

I love Chaotic Box. Silverfish is one of of my all-time faves. I'm buying this game on the strength of the dev's rep. Thanks for the approachable price point and making it universal.

Frank, can each level be completed to have only a single tile remaining resulting in a starred level?

Yup. It gets tough after the first 10 or so levels

Geez Louise, I am having problems getting the stars in the first few levels! Hopefully a video walk through will spring up on the Net to provide some inspiration.

Some folks seem to breeze through the first page, others, not so much

It often helps to just move tiles logically to gather up all the blank tiles rather than worrying about the numbers too much. There's usually many many ways to solve each puzzle, and the actual math can work itself out in dozens of different ways.

Wow - what a surprise. Absolute gem of a game. Travelling a long journey on tuesday and can't wait to spend some time with this. Very well implemented too.

Nozoku v1.0.1 update is now available. Biggest change is that each page of levels is now locked until you earn a certain number of stars. Seems some folks were missing the whole star mechanic, so it's now stuffed down your throat
