SIGH .... Just the BIGGEST SIGH ever.......

Has this developer not seen what's currently on the market for riddlers/griddlers/nanograms, etc.? NO color. A storyline would be nice. Filled in spaces are woodsy looking if you consider a brown tile 'woodsy'. Also, there is a single dot in each tile (huh?????). It reminds me of dominoes. NO background color either!

What the .............. ?!?!?!?!?!

Even beginner games in this genre are better looking and more fun than this disaster.

Again .... BIG SIGH.

No purchase for me today.

Have a good day!

There are pros and cons to this game, but on the whole it's not a bad little griddler game. I do wish the "woodgrain" tiles had a little more contrast with the background for those of us with less than perfect eyesight. The ones with a single dot on the tile seem to be trying for a knotty pine effect. While it's true that there are no multiple colors, there is auto-complete, and I like the remove a blank tile option a lot better than the standard push pin in the unused space one.

If you're like me, you don't read the little playing tips shown on the screen after you finish a picture - they tend to be the same thing over and over. Someone involved with this game, though, has a sense of humor and has dropped a few little things here and there instead of the tips. I generally get a sense of what was there just out of force of habit and my peripheral vision and got a "wait, what?" reaction after one level, so I started paying attention after that. Had to buy the game to encourage whoever is behind this - and to hope they will add more colors/storyline to future endeavors.

I rather like to woodsy looking tiles. But what really sold me was the game play - it is smooth as silk. Better than any other similar game I have played.

Multiple colors would be nice. I don't care as much about a story line - my favorite series pretends to have a story line but really only has an opening and an ending.

I have a number of coupons and this is a great time waster. I would give it 4 stars.

It's nicer than the other single-color games, and has nice, relaxing music.

I really wanted to like this game as I'm a big fan of this type, but, sadly, I found it boring with just the one color.

I'm kind of enjoying the game and I don't mind the single colors. I'm hoping it gets more challenging as the levels increase.

However, as I noted in a technical report, the music stops after 3-4 levels and I don't care for that feature or bug. I hope it can be fixed.

I'll also have to keep an eye on the tips after completing a round.
