I would have liked to see a comic book style story behind the game. You are this awesome super hero fighting for the good of beating a puzzle. Maybe with the addition of a back story we could know what is going on in our characters head. I would have loved to see panels as you beat a level or at the end of a stage it would have made the game that much better. Also sometimes, hitting the refresh button on the screen became a pain as a ball was blocking it or you actually just couldn’t hit it just right.
Captain Puzzle took my idea of the same old boring match 3 puzzle and turned it on its head. Puzzles had a challenge but were not so hard that the game got to the point you did not want to play. Many times I found myself wanting to go back just to make sure I had 3 stars on a certain level. You will find this to be one of the many games you might consider keeping on your ipod just to replay certain levels.
