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.)

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.
