I absolutely love this game! I originally played it on the OUYA, but loved it so much I bought it for my phone. I only wish it were on the XBOX so I could get it there as I have been enjoying Figment and Figment 2.

Nice game. I played it on PC and enjoyed it. The touch controls on mobile are infuriating, but thankfully the game supports a gamepad (and I highly recommend playing with a gamepad). The game also supports Android TV, but unfortunately the pre-game screen is not controllable with gamepads, requiring click/tap to advance into the actual game. Afterwards, the game can be smoothly played with just the gamepad. And the game also includes Google Play achievements.

Other comments about the controls being frustrating don't seem justified. The tutorial could have been a smidge clearer but I picked it up in seconds. The puzzles are very easy, but it's a nice concept, so I give it 3 stars.
