  2. looks like it has a potential to be a neat puzzler but the video really only showed the basics

    i wish they would have shown one of the more advanced levels

    Looks very interesting

    It looks interesting but I too would like to see how it plays for one of the more advanced levels. It kind of reminds me of Rotorumpus except here you are trying to collect and clear all the white blocks and in Rotorumpus you are trying to reach an exit point.

    $1.99 is a easy sell for this one. Count me in, kinda reminds me of Echochrome to a degree.

    yeah same here. I dont consider this a TOFTT. I think that a TOFTT is one where there is no video and nobody knows the gameplay, but this looks really good.

    man i dont know if i should buy this or not... You know whats weird is im worried about length, when if i go see a movie its 11 bucks and its only 2 hours long. By that logic, if i get more than 21 minutes of enjoyment out of this, then it would have been worth it.

    I have to make this quick, but I wanted to say that it's worth buying. The controls are good and the puzzles make you use your brain in weird ways. There's no music, which sucks, but I assume you can use your own.

    I give it my thumbs up.

    same here. Great game, i would advise buying it now. It gets hard pretty early in the game so it should hold me over for a while if i want to beat all of them. Very awesome puzzler, nothing else like it in the app store.

    The music used in the you tube video fit the game perfectly. No music at all = wtf?

    The puzzles are fun and the game makes you think. The minimalistic graphics fit the game, as well.

    Buy it.

    I like the game too. A different puzzle approach mixing 2D and 3D point of views.

    Notes:

    - one and not so subtle sound when eliminating tiles
    - no music
    - in puzzle #10 the game starts to be interesting
    - no undo but you can easily restart a level
    - no time, no number of max moves, nothing more than solving each puzzle

    Good to know.

    If the higher levels get very large then I hope the dev will add an undo button. And hopefully the dev will add stats for the number of moves taken. This will give me more reason to replay once I've completed the levels.

    I think I'll pick this one up.

    That looks really fun. Definitely considering buying it. Seems like a game that could keep me busy for a while.

    Would take one hell of an algorithim, but a future update with randomly generated levels would make this game insane and easily one of the bestter puzzlers out there.

    So far though, I'm loving this. I like how there is no countdown timer, but a time tracking system would be nice, so you could go back and try to beat your best time. Even if it was just a hidden counter not shown until the puzzle was solved, that would still be fantastic. Music would be nice, as mentioned the music from the video would have fit quite well.

    This game has room for improvement, but as-is it is well worth the price. If the developer is the type to continuously improve his application, then this is solid. If the developer is the type to consider user input in the updates, then this is golden.

    Very interesting concept. Highly recommend you guys to check out the youtube video!

    Although I'm not into puzzle games, I may try this one out due to the fact that it's very original (the whole 2d / 3d perspective change thing)

    Bought it, enjoy it.... the 2d/3d thing is cool. So far it hasnt been the most difficult puzzle game, I'm on lvl 23, but that works for me. I don't want it to be so hard that I just quit playing all together... I would recommend it, the video shows the game play with the only difference being that later the black boxes block you off, and apparently the red boxes will allow you to jump a space (i think these come up on expert levels, i havent come across one yet). Worth $2 so far and im a hardcore gamer, but just a casual puzzle gamer.

    You can't play your own music by default, but you can do the sleep>double tap home button trick. I guess that's doable.

    This is a really awesome game so far. I've never played a puzzle like this before. I hope this dev keeps making games.:)
