I've been working my way through the shareware levels - among the paid maps, are any significantly harder than the free ones? (playing more puzzles on the same map is fun, but there are very few challenging ones in the shareware package)

There are several tough maps in the full version, yes. I'm still making my way through them so I don't know what the percentage is. One nice thing is that you can set a list of favorite maps and then when you click on the red X to get a random map, it only chooses from your favorites. So you can easily just choose the harder ones, and still get a decent variety.

And with the full version comes an editor...I've made a few maps already, although one of them seems to be almost identical to some others that are included with the full version. Also on the Yahoo! group for Kaser games is a random map generator program for WM, which I haven't played around with too much, but it might be a nice touch.

I think the best way to give yourself a real challenge is to turn off the warning system. Accidentally clicking on the correct object, or having an error in logic revealed to you instantly instead of having it propagate, definitely lowers the difficulty.

Game on,

Yeah, I don't play with the warning system on. Anyway, thanks for the map info - I might register this game once I'm done with the free maps.
