Default SEQ (feedback needed)

Hi guys,

Could you give me some feedbacks about my game SEQ? It's a puzzle game with simple graphics and complex solutions.
The basic principle is to "draw" sequences to fill the grid, with some logical/numerical constraints.


SEQ has been downloaded over 400K times (mainly in Europe). It's universal and synced with iCloud. The app is free (40 levels) and there are 3 paid packs of 60 levels with increasing difficulty.

I offer you a magic link to unlock the paid packs for free so that you can try out the game:

Install SEQ
Then tap this magic link to unlock everything

The link will work until Wednesday.

PS: I'm the developer of ON/OFF too.

Ok I will try it and post impressions? With 400K downloads what feedback are you looking for?

Magic Link FTW! Seriously that is cool. Haven't seen anyone do anything like that before. I just ran through all the A levels and its pretty good so far. I like the minimalist graphics, and nice relaxing tones. The puzzles are pretty easy so far but I'm guessing that will change

I've played the first 50 levels so far. The minimalist style works well.

Finding it more of a relaxing puzzler than a really taxing on so far, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Definitely worth a look.

This is an excellent puzzle game. The graphics style and sounds fit very well. Thanks for the unlocks.

Was wondering why this wasn't linked ti the game, and realised that the game already had a thread here: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=146055

Should these threads be merged, or this one moved to the deals thread or something?

Thanks for the free levels! I downloaded this a few weeks ago and bought the medium pack. Hadn't completed it yet, it's nice to have the other packs too.
I really like SEQ. I downloaded it because I was looking for more relaxed puzzles, without time/move limits. Like sudoku/slitherlink puzzle books that you just work through on your own pace.

The easy levels were really easy. I think it would have been nice to be able to try some of the more difficult levels for free, to get a sense of the difficulty of those level packs. Instead of 40 easy levels free, I would have preferred 20 easy levels, 10 medium and 10 hard, something like that. I like the difficulty of the medium levels. Difficulty does feel a bit uneven at times, but it doesn't become irritating (at least not so far).

The only thing I really don't like in the game is that you have to finish each level in a pack before you can move on to the next one (or you can buy keys with IAP). That keeps it from truly replicating the puzzle-book experience that I like so much. It's so relaxing, and it would be nice to just be able to skip a puzzle. (This might actually have kept me from buying the hard level pack - it would suck to be stuck at one of the first puzzles).

But those are relative nit-picks, and I just offer them because the author specifically asked for feedback. The game itself is great. I really like the design of the game, and the sounds/music. That adds a lot to the game. The mechanics also work well, it's intuitive and easy to draw a line, and it's nice that you can delete only a portion of the line.

I'm midway through World C. In my opinion, the game is ok for a puzzle game. It's slow and mellow. That being said, I don't typically buy games like this. The Vault drove me nuts to the point I was ready to Google the solutions.

So far, not once have I been stumped. It may have taken 1-2 paths to make sure I got all of them in, but it hasn't been overly complicated.

I dig the look. It's very simple. I prefer minimalist GUIs.

That's pretty much my opinion for now. I'll edit this if/as I get further.

Thank you for the puzzles.

I played through the first 30 puzzles really quickly. I agree that they're pretty easy, but I'll note that I've played through almost all of Kris Pixton's Pathpix apps, which feature a similar game.

One thing I noted around puzzle 20ish is that you can't work backwards from a 0. At one point the path of a colored line wasn't immediately obvious to me so I figured I'd try to work backwards from the endpoint to see if that'd clarify things. If this were a newspaper puzzle, that'd be a standard tactic, but it doesn't look like we can do it in-app.

I second all of what Lena has said about progression and difficulty.

I play apps a lot at nighttime, in bed when winding down for sleep. Puzzle games are great for this because they tire me out. But bright white backgrounds aren't, especially since I share my bed. I'd really appreciate it if there were a "nighttime" color scheme for those of us trying to minimize the amount of light our devices give off. (Huge bonus points and customer loyalty if you develop a f.lux-esque nighttime scheme that filters blue light, but I'm not holding my breath.)

I guess the only other thing I can suggest/ask at this point, is: have you tested this game with colorblind audiences? I'm not colorblind myself, but I feel like a jerk anytime I recommend my favorite new puzzle game to a friend and they can't make heads or tails of it.
