Worst. Puzzle game. Ever.

Hint: if you have to write a "how to play" page that takes up seven screens for a simple puzzle game, your UI sucks.


(This is the intellectual equivalent of "Oh god, that's horrible! Here, smell this!" You should try it, just to see how annoying it is.)

http://www.puzzlingpictures.com/howtoplay.php could have been eliminated and it would still suck

One day in the near future I think I will be able to forgive you for posting this link.

I believe that is not a puzzle game at all, but in fact an instrument of mental torture.

Or a case study in the gullibility of humans and the word "puzzle".

I agree,

it bites. Though the challenge is compelling.

OK. I read the instructions, and played the game. I was thinking, "OK, this is a little awkward, but it's not that bad." "Hmm, I'm not sure I would have programmed this this way, but still...", etc.

I played two of the puzzles, and now I have a hellacious headache.

I guess it is that bad.
