Novel idea and well thought-through game mechanic.

However, the playability of this game would improve tremendously with the addition of an (unlimited) UNDO button. As is, it is frustrating to have to restart after 30+ turns because of a mistake in the 31st.

The idea is quite unique, the interface flawed, the gameplay rewarding, but the learning curve is very, very far from decent, when after very straight answered 15-Pipe you get 16-Dig where after several tries I can't get more than 5 free $. I still couldn't get past it so I can't know if it's very, very misplaced and should happen near the end, or if there are something around 20 levels missing between 15 and 16, but this is a huge flaw to the game, lack of save system being a close second.

So, as I suddenly can't by any way get past a certain level I have to leave this game unfinished and I'm afraid I won't be back without a walkthrough.

In 15, all you have to do is stall the proceeding water as long as possible creating curved path and deleting wall divisions after they're all surrounded - the idea is simple. 16 is a frustrating annoyance blocking the path to the rest of levels.

Why is it linear again? If I could play the levels in any order there wouldn't be a problem.

Well, i like the game, but can't get past the 9th level, because there isn't enough moves, the max number of walls i can get is 28, but it doesn't cover the houses entirely.
But i discovered a way to put walls in the top row of tiles, it is possible if you click in the extreme down left of the square.
Please fix 9th level strategy


Hoork responds:

Actually, you need 28 walls to fully cover the houses. Maybe, you put some of them in the wrong place (in the corner near the houses, for example).

Thanks for playing!

The game has an interesting concept behind it, I really like its idea. You basically have to protect cells that houses from a "flood" that cleans up cells that are adjacent to the blue space in every new turn, and for that, you may use walls that are made available by factories laid around the map. The puzzles built with this mechanic are really clever, and they make for nice challenges.

The one problem I had, and that ruined the game for me, is that the graphical interface is weird as hell. Why would the play field be in a corner of the screen instead of the center? Also, does the game screen need to be this large? It barely fits my monitor. This eventually pissed me off just enough that I couldn't stand to move on anymore.

Thanks for your kind words, buddy!
My bad. I don't think about people with lower monitor resolution. I will consider it in my next game.
