Blue Box X: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

Michal Pawlowski is the author of Blue Box X,  He describes it as A minimalist puzzle game, that takes you on a meditative journey through the puzzling world of a little Blue Box.

It's one of those discovery puzzle apps where you must first figure out what to do, then how to do it.  I don't want to spoil things except for this innocuous tip: never swipe in any direction. Simply tap the left side, or tap the right side. (I was confused about that for the first 3 levels.)

Each level must be studied carefully. There will be much trial and error. For example, some levels have multiple wormholes and you can't determine which wormhole matches with which - because they're all yellow.

I contacted Michal to at least find out how many levels there are: 60.  I'm stuck on 52. It happens to be the image below. The solution, I know, involves an 'aha' realization.

Blue Box X is charming, fun and absolutely worth $.99.  Blue Box X is in contention for a PAGY Award (Puzzle App Games of the Year). That's right, Michal describes himself as a hamster on coke.
