Glitch stops progress

Was loving the game to start with but I'm now very frustrated as a glitch is halting any further progress and I can find no way of reporting this to the developer other than through this review. I have got as far as Level 20, Multiplication Workshop. Regardless of the last two numbers input, the output product of these two numbers receives an error message "Bad outbox! Management expected 0 but you outboxed _". I cannot see how 0 can be expected at the outbox when neither of the last two numbers multiplied together are 0. I'm hoping for some feedback on this problem from the developers.

Hard to understand...

...this game should be banned. Surprisingly I got to level 7 or 8..the one where you start adding things...but just as I was starting to get the hang of it then the frustrating & annoying begins by the game changing the numbers everytime you have to restart...yes, yes, yes I know you can stop it midway but it's easier if you could restart WITHOUT the numbers changing. Far too much for my brain & patience to take. I HATE THIS GAME...*screams*. In the Cube you can 'simplify', the devs of this game should take note so those of us who are a trifle thick could actually enjoy the game, I mean I did pay real money for it. SIMPLIFY IT.

Best Game Ever!

This is what a puzzle game should be. I love going away and thinking about it and trying different approaches without silly time constraints or meaningless scores. It's very satisfying watching the animation of your solution when you get it right. I'm getting near the end though, any more levels on the horizon?
