Turn Off Puzzle Hints

You now have an option in the Options Menu to turn off the flashing puzzle hints.


Challenges now give a souls as a reward at all levels.

  • 1 Star= 5 souls
  • 2 Stars= 10 souls
  • 3 Stars= 15 souls
  • 4 Stars= 20 souls
  • 5 Stars= 100 souls

Puzzle Game AI

We’ve nerfed the AI a little for new players.  The AI will now occasionally make bad moves.  This tails off as the player approaches level 15. This change does not apply in PvP.
We’ve also implemented a feature, where the game detects some lucky drop-infs for the AI and alters them to favor the Human Player.  This tailors off as players progress through their 20’s.  Once again, this change does not apply in PvP.

    Is there a possibility of getting souls from challenges completed before the patch backdated? Otherwise a lot of players will miss out on the extra 50 souls per complete challenge which is a substantial amount

    Like Kiriel, I completed quite a few challenges before the patch, and have missed out on quite a lot of souls. With souls being a much more desirable resource, I’ll gladly turn in whatever gold I earned in return for challenge souls.

    Amazing game in general, and amazing patch in particular!
