Thanks for sharing your play with us, John.
We try to make the levels more difficult than it looks so players might feel surprised and challenged. But many feedbacks have pointed out the current difficulty curve fluctuates, and the fails lack sense of rewarding.
So we are adjusting level sequences as long as add some new play elements right now. A new update will be available soon in about two week and hopefully the levels will be more rewarding and less punishing. Welcome to try it again.
