Block Puzzle is free to download, but players can purchase additional puzzles via an in-app purchase. Why did you choose this payment model? Did you consider any other payment models during development?
The free-to-play with in-app purchases model is very popular at the moment, so I didn't consider any other payment models during development.
How long would you expect it to take the average player to complete all 4,000 of the free puzzles on offer?
You can solve the easier levels within minutes or sometimes even seconds. The harder puzzles, meanwhile, can take days or even weeks to complete.
I've already received emails along the lines of, "I was trying to solve this level for two weeks. I thought it was impossible. My friends and whole family also tried. Finally, I did it. I feel like a hero."
I think an average gamer will need several months to complete all 4,000 free levels.

Do players have access to an unlimited number of hints or must they earn them throughout play? What does a player have to do to earn hints?
In order to earn hints, players have to buy them via in-app purchases.
