I've missed working on games fellas, I really have. I still don't have time to finish up the games I've promised, but I found myself with free time this afternoon. I made a math related post earlier today because I was mulling around a few math puzzle ideas. I knew I had this entire afternoon with nothing else to do, so I had to come up with something simple enough that I could code the whole thing within that time. Hopefully that doesn't mean this will be riddled with bugs ROFL!
When I'm stuck at my boring day job, I try to bring puzzles and stuff with me to help the time pass faster. Unfortunately, I am limited to only puzzles I can do in my head since I would get into trouble if I was seen scribbling on paper rather than lugging heavy boxes out of the trucks. One of my most favorite puzzle types to take to work is a logic puzzle generated by a computer program I made years ago. They can be quite difficult, but it occurred to me that if I can do the puzzles without writing things down, then they might lend themselves to being made accessible.
I've only coded 2 puzzles into the game for now, but it should be more than enough to keep someone busy. Keep in mind that these puzzles are not for the faint of heart... they are designed to make you really think! At first glance you may think they are math puzzles, but in truth there is very little need for any mathematical equations. If you think things through carefully, you'll be fine.
Oh, in the game's introduction I forgot to mention that the H key will give you a hint about the specific clue.
I went through both puzzles and solved them myself to make sure neither stood out as being overly difficult.

P.S. I've gone back and added in 2 more puzzles. In my personal opinion, puzzles 3 and 4 are easier than 1 and 2.
On puzzle 3 I fixed a typo that caused the hint on clue 11 to tell you I was smaller than T when it should be reversed.
I've added a small voice that announces the clue number as you scroll through them.
