Sounds interesting. And at least now we know it has more than one mode of play.

I'm sometimes drawn to different puzzle games like this (another being Wario's Woods) and I'm really glad I was! It's relaxing and not too demanding to finish most levels and unlike so many puzzle games, if you get stuck in a stage without access to the internet you can still pass the level. Candle Route gives you hints, if you want them, for each stage in A mode of the first two moves.

I like mode B more though, and if I nitpick I sometimes get annoyed that once I'm done 10-20 levels of mode B I need to unlock more by playing more of Mode A. However, they're both enjoyable so it rocks for £1.80!
