I played and liked! All the animations make it feel very polished and consistent throughout, and the gameplay is an interesting twist on match-threes! As mentioned before, difficulty could increase a good bit quicker to make for a good challenge. Other than that I'd really like an indicator of which column is currently selected to shuffle (It really shouldn't be necessary, but I occasionally confused the column I had selected with another one, and it  would probably go very well hand in hand with the otherwise flawless UI).


If you understand the controls then this can be awesome puzzle game! Played it for a good while and zoned out  but sometimes it was a bit too slow. Very enjoyable and polished Kyle.
