Feedback from the experts

Christer Kaitila: A interesting and unusual game, I kept wishing I could just hold down the backspace key instead of clicking each letter first, but that would be too easy. I just furiously clicked anywhere and spammed backspace with zero strategy at all, and got to a super high level, so this already great game might be improved by forcing users to choose more selectively, maybe to spell words like a crossword puzzle or to only remove typos, or certain letters will ruin your day if you backspace them. Maybe you have to find spelling mistakes in the grid. These are all just ideas, you did a wonderful job as is! Great work!

Jupiter Hadley: This is a very simple idea, but the pacing and way it's built is very nice. I like the sound effects too!
