Has anyone tried this? Looks pretty good from this article, but I am wondering about the puzzle quality. Foilman makes great puzzles and it would be easy for the game to be no good if the puzzles are to easy/hard/predictable. I would trust this group way more than some reviewer.

Also I can't find it anywhere but Asia to buy it.

I am a little suspicious of the "you never have to guess" bit. To me, this indicates that the puzzles are not hard enough.

Of course it is logically true that you never "have to" guess in these puzzles - you just have to memorize all the patterns which are smaller than the puzzle size.

Eh? Or derive them on-the-fly when they appear. Does it really constitute guessing if you just visualise it rather than use FP? But then it's a question of how far (and wide) ahead you can read things.
