Great puzzle style/design, but poor visual layout
There are many things that I like about this game:
- the puzzle concept ... similar to some other games in that the tetris-shaped pieces must be placed into the play area without wasted space.
- the added complexity of pre-defined colour spaces (i.e. only one colour of piece may go into the area) is a bonus.
- the flavour text is kind of fun (if a bit silly).
- the levels aren't timed, but if pieces 'stack up' unused for too long, the level must be restarted (limited number of these available before the game ends).
Unfortunately, I found it visually difficult to see where to play pieces. Once a piece is placed in the play area, a 3D building arises, making it difficult to see the spaces behind it. This is particularly frustrating on the "fill all target spaces" levels, as I found it impossible to see which target spaces might remain unfilled. (My areas looked complete - 3 times in a row - yet the game showed that I hadn't met the goal.). There was no way to see what squares remained unfilled.
If the game was simple 2D - just the puzzle aspect - I'd rate it with 5 stars gladly.
If there was a way (help button, one of the powerups, something) that would show "unfilled spaces" or something, even for a short moment - I'd likely do the same.
As it stands, the best that I can do is 2 stars. To me, being able to actually *see* the puzzle I'm trying to solve is a make-or-break requirement.

Love this game - wish there were more like it
I love this game - it gets really challenging towards the end but is always fun! If anyone knows of a similar game, let me know!

puzzle game or time management?
the r nice and clear
there r 2 modes timed and untimed
this game had possiblilities but they ruided it buy timing it and
i had issues with the very 1st level
i never have issues with the 1st timed levels
the untimed was ok passed it quickly

this is NOT a puzzle game it is a TM game
so i think this should be re-catagorized.

Not a simulation
I expected a sim game, but this is really not a sim. It is pretty boring and not at all challenging enough to keep my attention, I didn't even make it to the full hour for the trial before I stopped playing.
