I have truly in enjoyed each and every level of the game especially the main campaign. Puzzles are quite interesting where you are not locked into one solution. There is also an optional little solitaire like minigame you can play, nevertheless, I haven’t really bothered with that as the main appeal of the game lies in the actual puzzles for me. If you loved Infinifactory, You would love this game too. Alas, Opus Mangum is addictive, super smart, beautiful and brain stimulating game. Yet, merely perfect.
