Good but not great
I like these types of games. So I try every one that comes down the pipe! As usual it's going to come down to personal preference though I admit I decided this was a non buy. Not even if it were on special. There are too many other similar games that work better for me.
The biggest complaint I have is it's so easy to make a mistake! I'm a big click and drag to fill in large areas kind of person. Unfortunately if you don't go straight across you can accidentally fill in an area above or below on accident. Some may find the very responsive touch a positive but for me I killed more than a few levels with a jittery hand.
I did appreciate the auto fill in when you've finished a row.
There really isn't much in the way of a tutorial but it's the same concept as others in this genre. The only thing that I found confusing is figuring out power ups and how many mistakes you were allowed, when you were allowed them, hint use, etc.
I prefer to skip through tutorials pretty well but the basic differences explained would've been appreciated.

Didn't really care for this, although I did play all the puzzles through to the end. I don't like it when the game automatically fills in the empty squares for you. Music was blah. Completed puzzles barely resembled some of the items they were supposed to represent. Just okay. I've played lots of better mosaic games. Some people will like this.

Interesting but has confusing aspects
The game is cute and the idea of uncovering hints and power ups as you go is interesting. The game fills in empty squares for you, which isn't needed, but some players might appreciate. The worse part for me was that the game crosses off numbers even though the colored squares don't have an empty space at the end and I found myself making mistakes repeatedly. I'd say try it out and see if you can get used to that feature before you buy. I couldn't, which is why I'm giving it 2.5 stars.

A decent challenge.
It seemed to have a good amount of challenging puzzles and a fair amount of easy ones, based on the demo play.
Sometimes I had fun and sometimes I got annoyed enough to want to shut it off mid demo.
The graphics are decent for this type of puzzling.
Clear and colorful.
Music I could take it or leave it.
The game instructions were a bit iffy, but it doesn't take long to figure out what to do.
I could possibly see myself purchasing it to tease/torture my brain.

almost ! got it right
Cute idea. Improvements: auto-fill in when your row is done, differing challenges. Maddening! that at times when I clicked the correct button on the correct square, it gave me a gray "x", which changed to red when I hit a really wrong button! What's up, dev's???? I love to figure each out, but this just spoiled it for me. Don't know if I'll buy it, but very iffy.
