I really like all the little artistic touches like the embossed edges
and the sounds. It seems like an interesting idea to add to MT if it
could easily support it. Or perhaps it would be better as its own puzzle
built to share the MT engine. What I wonder even more is whether
Andrey’s MagicTile633 or its engine could be easily adapted to support
the 3D version of Circull. And people shouldn’t fear it because it’s
only a 3D puzzle after all. OK sure, it’s hyperbolic but it’s still
just 3D. :-)
