The one pesky thing is that in the puzzles with many drifting pieces, picking the desired piece very often requires repetitive clicking, even when the cursor is directly on that piece. Expand

    While the game is extremely fun to play, it is really bad.

    Developers made almost no effort to deliver a good product, there are 2 hugely bad things about this game: the piece "fishing" system and the audio (both music and effects)

    As you can see from preview images, puzzle pieces float on a pond and you have to pick them up while they move/shuffle. In theory this should be good, but with a lot of pieces floating around (level 3+ puzzles) even if you click on the piece you want to pick up, you're offered other pieces instead, countless times. For me this is bad coding, plain and simple, because any tester can notice that and for sure the system is not supposed to work like that.

    Then there's the audio. Effects and music seems to have been recorded with a cell phone or something similar, I usually play with headphones and the background noise was terribly annoying.

    Many reviewers pointed out also that this game lacks a mid-puzzle save feature, but I have to say that it took at most one hour to complete puzzles (played 10h to complete 15 puzzles) and even if you're really bad with puzzles I can't see how you could spend more than idk, 2 hours trying to solve any of them, therefore I don't think the save feature is really something that is badly missing.

    So, again, I fully enjoyed playing this puzzle game, but because of the above I'd probably not recommend it to anyone, just buy a real physical puzzle instead.
