Feedback from the experts

Spartez Team: Thanks for submitting your game to js13k :) I made to it the level 4. It was true fun to play your game, it felt very complete :) I had to restart the game twice because I didn't understand what was going on and what should I be doing. Maybe you could have a bit more instructions on what is expected from the player and usually you will receive such kind of advice by letting other people play test your game. In regards of the content, it was refreshing to be challenged on puzzles! And it was really fun to figure out the first levels, the thrill was nice! But by the fourth level I think it was too much. There was 13 letters, 21 movements, 7 spaces, and the tip was not much helpful. I get that it's a charade type of game and I didn't try that long, but I felt stuck and with no hopes. One of the things that could have helped me was to know that no letters on the board could be repeated, which would make me willing to try harder. With the current one, I was hopeless. Not even the dictionary helped me "There are 3981 7-letter words that do not contain letters D, H, J, K, L, M, Q, S, U, W and Y." :)
