    Hi! I took #15. I like the core mechanic of the game, having to plan ahead to get 3 stars is fun and I appreciate the 3 taps = 3 stars consistency (at least in the first 4 levels, which is all I've played).

    However, I played 3 levels of your game and then had to watch a 30 second ad. After sitting through it and finishing the fourth level, I was told I had used up my lives and I had to buy more or watch a video or wait. 4 levels. Kinda ruined the fun for me. Also the back arrow on the levels menu is broken.

    1)Took #1
    2)Game is interesting and makes you think how to spin wheels, different sizes are making game more challenging, though it’s very easy to solve any level in two-three moves, you just need to watch, observe and memorize what to move and how to move.
    Unusual mechanics make game special, because I haven’t seen any game like this.
    Different music themes are good too (because it’s rare to see so much music in such game)
    3)at first I got problems with graphics: one of the wheels was out of the screen, but then it stabilized.
    Also, got same troubles with life. After level 4 got video and then I got message “out of life”. But after completing the game, I understood why it was like that: to make people play longer(read (2)). But I think that the life system must base on failing levels and restarting it.
    Also, there are no Gamecenter (or I haven’t seen it), the game would be better with achievements and records.

    I have also completed level 60, here is proof(I can also provide other world screenshots):

    1)Took # 13
    2) I really like the gameplay. It's very addictive. The background music is also very cool
    3)
    • it would be great to add also option to buy the unlimited hearts.
    • some of the levels were a little bit buggy for example big wheels were a bit out of a screen(but it was still playable)
    • there is a bug with game screen rotating. The main menu not able to rotate automatically, but the in-app purchase window works fine.
    • It was not clear in the game how to get 3 stars. Because sometimes I finished the level pretty fast and still got only 2 stars. After few attempts I figured it out somehow, but it was so random

    I finished the game

    2) mechanics are really good and overall is very well done.
    3) maybe those ads that ruined all the fun, as always.

    thanks a lot!

    1.) I took No.3.

    2.) The mechanics are very simple and never giving me headaches. I think this is a Must-Play game. And also, ADS ruined all the time. But I loved this!!

    3.) And also, please just improve the lives system of the game... i really was expected to be unlimited lives, but no.... so sad but please that is my suggestion.

    1) #21

    2)

    3) Device: iPhone 7; iOS 11.1

    When entering the app in landscape mode, the settings and the game itself is broken. The menu still shows portrait mode but once you enter a game it tries to force it to landscape mode but I’m not sure if it is supported for smaller screens in this mode so the game becomes larger and which makes the objects inside it oversized. You can refer to the images below. Sorry for my bad explanation. Worked fine on iPad Mini 4, both modes.

    High score:

    Used 14, too much ads, they should be reduced and more levels should be added, But the gameplay is good. Finished all levels.

    Finally got a chance to sit down and play the game for a bit. (I took promo code 22.)
    I really enjoyed the game mechanics; it's a unique puzzler that really makes you study the level and think about how to rotate the bolts to achieve the correct configuration. I think the level design was done well and I enjoyed the gradual ramp-up in difficulty as I progressed through the game.

    As far as feedback goes, here's a few issues I noticed (and some of my suggestions for improvements):

    • I completed a level with three stars, and then I replayed it later on and got two stars on the level. When I go back to the level select screen, the level is shown with only two stars earned. I think the level select should reflect the highest stars attained, not the most recent.
    • Also, building off of the previous point, I'm not too sure how the stars counter at the top of the level select is calculated. It seems like it should be based off of the total number of stars earned so far, but the number that I have isn't equal to that total.
    • In the main menu, the music restarts whenever you change submenus and go back to the main menu. For example, if I hit the settings button (the gear icon) in the main menu and then go back to the main menu, the music will restart. This is a little annoying for those of us that play with the sound on, so maybe allowing the music to continue instead of looping when interacting with the menu would be better.
    • I think a previous poster might have mentioned this already - the back button on the level select screen doesn't work. I wasn't able to go back to the main menu once I got to the level select screen.
    • When you're in a level, the main menu button redirects back to level select instead of the main menu. Maybe add a separate button for main menu, and one for level select. Or instead just keep the level select button as it is now, but rename it so players know that it goes to level select instead of main menu. This is a minor issue but it would enhance clarity for users.
    • In terms of ways to improve understanding of the game, it might help to add an explanation for the rainbow bolt icon that allows you to instantly "solve" a bolt. I accidentally used one of mine on an early level, since I didn't know what it did. I would recommend putting an explanation of its usage on the first level, so players don't accidentally end up using it early on.
    • Another poster mentioned this, and I wholeheartedly agree - the game should clearly explain how each of the three stars are awarded. Perhaps also do this in the first level; since the first level is a tutorial anyways, it wouldn't hurt to add some more instruction here to avoid player confusion in the future.
    • Finally, the addition of a leaderboard and achievements would be awesome! There could be a leaderboard for most stars collected. Achievements could be given for how many levels were completed with three stars, and there could also be more "fun" achievements like reaching a certain number of swipes over the course of playing, etc.
    I hope this feedback helps, and feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
