- Minor bug fixes and improvements
Nice look, fun puzzle, but a few frustrations
I have seen this sort of logic puzzle before, but the hexagonal layout gives it a new twist. I also like the incandescent electric look.
It is a little too easy for fat fingers to rotate adjacent pieces unintentionally. Because of the logic involved, there are always some pieces that can only "fit" in one possible direction; thus, having some kind of "locking" feature to prevent accidental rotation of pieces would go a long way in reducing frustration.
The zoom function is not as intuitive as it could be. The pinch gesture leads one to expect a fully controlled zoom-in and zoom-out, when really it just toggles between two fixed zoom levels and re-centers the view. It took me a while to figure out why I couldn't control the zoom more precisely.
I have yet to complete a level and be awarded more than one out of three stars—even at the lowest skill setting with a finishing time of 29 seconds. The bar seems unrealistically high.
This is how to do it
Absolutely charming game, very original concept, beautifully crafted and fun brain teaser. Has given me hours or distraction!
