This game is addicting! Another splendid time-waster, but I think puzzle games all work this way XD
This game is really great! The directions are a bit confusing, but it's easy to get the hang of it! Although one thing that there could be is a hint button. The puzzles can be hard. :P
fun, but needs just a little tweek...
After getting very frustrated with the puzzle mode, i tried playing 5-minute mode.
For me, starting simple and expanding worked a lot better than reading instructions! If you just write in the main menu that beginners should start by playing 5-minute mode, you'll get a lot less complains about the instructions and difficulty...
Good puzzle game, but steep learning curve
Well designed puzzle game has a couple of drawbacks. Here's my list of cons and pros:
o The instructions are a little hard to find considering most of us just dive right in to a game expecting a "step by step" tutorial if no "instruction" button is on the main menu. FOR OTHER PLAYERS READING THIS, CLICK ON EXTRAS FOR THE "HOW TO PLAY BUTTON. Alas, even that isn't very helpful and a little trial and error is still required. EVERY PIPE NEED NOT BE USED, JUST DON'T LEAVE ANY OPEN ENDS ON THE "FILLED" PIPES.
o The music gets ridiculously repetitive and must be muted after only a few minutes of play (I kind of liked it at first, but it grated after a short while).
o Although I can tell there is some kind of progression to the normal mode, it's not as obvious as the zen mode and it can start to feel like one is doing another puzzle just for the hell of it. Maybe add a clearer progression or perhaps even a flimsy bullshit storyline to nudge the player along. I likes me some flimsy bullshit storylines (not really).
o I do love the inclusion of different modes and everyone loves achievements!
Overall, a very addicting game concept and it's implemented very nicely, but some menu tweaking and/or inclusion of a tutorial would definitely raise your scores. I look forward to your future submissions!
Like the concept; dislike the music lol.
