It's a fun and fast game

Great game, except...

I like this game a lot, but when I complete a puzzle it doesn't give me any supplies in the final blast. I recommend playing this game though.

Too slow

Love the game but it is frustrating. So frustrating with energy used up too fast, leveling up too slow, etc. it should be easier to achieve goals. I'll not play it near as much any more because of the above complaints
