I have it. It really isn't very good. The gameplay isn't intuitive and the difficulty level is more frustrating than challenging.

I am fairly sure my copy came in one of those 5 games for $5 packs a while back. There are far better games on steam that have a $5 regular price.

It's fun, but nothing to keep you playing for too long. I bought it back around christmas, and have maybe played it once or twice since then, with a few hours under my belt.

Graphics are nice, but it surely can be a challenging game. If you love puzzle games, this might be a must-buy, if not, we shall wait another 24 hours for the next daily deal

I bought it for 5$ on one of the previous sales, and I don't think it's good enough to justify 5$. I do love puzzle games, and yet...

In the pack of 5 games for 5$ deal, it was about the worst one in the pack.

It's a game that takes some time to get used to. Personally i wouldn't listen to the people that have "a couple hours" logged in. I logged in about 4 hours or so before i really got the handle on it. Plus, the game has tutorials to help you.

I've logged in over 30 hours in this game and love it...plus my wife likes watching me play it.

If you do buy just have some patience and take the time to learn the game. It's worth it in the end.

This is one of those extremely polarizing games. There are folks that really love it (myself included) and those who really hate it. I've played a few hours and I'd say it's worth the price.

The biggest tip I can give you is to work from the bottom of the board up. The second biggest is there is no way to be perfect, the game is designed to make you lose eventually.

It's a rather shallow game. I had some fun from it when Steam did the promotion encouraging you to play it (The chest promotion, I believe, not the ARG) but I would never pay more than $3 for it since it's somewhat shallow and the type of puzzle game it is doesn't appeal to me.

That said, if you're tempted to buy it at $10 you're almost certainly going to enjoy it at $5. It isn't one of those wonder indie titles. It's as fun as it looks, basically. If that appeals to you, then by all means dive right in as you shouldn't be disappointed.

If you're expecting an unexpected, pleasant surprise, move along.

Just ok game, imho. Wait for a 75% off sale for true worth.

Yes this game is not good at all. I bought it at full price and it has never been fun playing it.

It is worth reading the application's news history:
http://store.steampowered.com/news/?appids=23120

It seems as though this application has twice before gone for 80% off.

Maybe the standard price used to be higher?

Well anyway I got this game in some kind of indie package and its nothing special. It seems that I squezed and hour out of it but as far as I recall it was pretty dull.

It was fine to get in a package but I dont think its worth 4.5euro.

For the same price or less for similar games I enjoyed more try Chime, Chains, Columns or Columns 3.

I think this game is a lot of fun. It's definitely worth $5 but I got it on sale for 2$. That being said I found the Xbox version to be more fun because the mouse in this game doesn't use hardware acceleration so it feels like the mouse isn't keeping up with you all of the time. They might have patched this by now though.

I have played it for 7 hours in total. I bought it during the Christmas Sale as well I believe. Sure, it's fun with its 4 different modes, but nothing ground breaking.
