I breezed through the game, dying only once or twice, then was annoyed that the final boss stole all my powerups before I was ready to use them and trounced me.

Instead of trying again fair, I wanted to see the ending, so I grabbed 8 "hide letter" powerups and dropped them on her at the beginning of the game. After getting 7 laid down, since she couldn't make a 3-letter word, she went into hyper-active re-shuffle until she dropped to 1hp, making her an easy kill.

Wouldn't it be better to limit "hide letter" to having 6 (or maybe even fewer) on the board at a time, to at least give a possibility of a 3-letter word?

Good point, that scenario never came up in testing, I'll limit how many you can carry to 3 in the next update.


When you say you \"breezed through\" - what difficulty were you playing on? I found that on the hardest mode it was very difficult indeed for everyone who tested it.


Thanks for the feedback Smile

Normal difficulty. It was my first playthrough. I like to start at normal on most games and work my way up. (beat Mr. Robot on normal with 99% of the ship explored, must have only missed 1 or 2 rooms. now I'm going for a 100% hard run). from the forums, it sounds like I missed the blue key stuff.
