WOW! Very cool concept!

I like the idea a lot. I can see you making other stories with this game mechanic. Very clever.

I'd make one suggestion in the directions (and maybe I missed this) but something like: "Select the letter you wish to replace, then select the letter you wish to replace it with." - I had no idea what I was doing at fist until I figured it out. Maybe that's the challenge, but some people may give up too soon!

Congratulations and good luck with the game!

PS: I appreciated the subtle music as I was trying to concentrate! Good choice. Sounds great.

Thanks! The first screen says "click two letters to switch them", but maybe that's confusing. I figured it was something that people would figure out just by watching what happens when they click stuff. And I really liked the music too :) I'm glad you enjoyed it!
