Good news! Previously, CCGR kindly reviewed Puzzledorf and gave it a solid review score of 88/100, something I was very proud of! Recently, I told them how the game has been updated with the 24 new beginner puzzles, updated graphics and the new, original soundtrack. Well, they loved it all so much that they updated the score to 94/100! I am super pleased with that!
Not only that, the reviewer loved the soundtrack so much he says he loves relaxing with the music in the background and recommends people check out the soundtrack store page!
You can read the full, updated review from CCGR here.
You can also check out Puzzledorf on Steam here.
Thanks again to everyone who has been supporting Puzzledorf! It is greatly appreciated!
As mentioned above, the game now features 24 new beginner puzzles designed to help ease new players into the game. They also include new achievements and, of course, Mirror Mode counterparts. The graphics have been updated, with all the classic and Christmas levels having a fresh new look with lots more environmental decorations and variations. And, of course, there’s the new original soundtrack. Hope you enjoy playing!

Puzzledorf can be found on Steam here.
Lots of changes in this update. Here’s the list:
Here’s the new trailer:
New beginner puzzles have been added to the game. These are super simple compared to what’s in the game already, but they are intended more as a teaching tool to get players new to puzzle games more comfortable with this different way of thinking.
I have noticed that some new players had been getting stuck early on, so I felt this was a necessary addition to the game. Now it’s in, I’m free to start working on ports and getting back to the new ‘Ruins’ puzzles.
The soundtrack is now for sale here on Steam. There’s a launch discount of 34% off if you’re early. Also, for anyone who hasn’t bought the game, you will be able to buy the game and soundtrack together at a discount. You can preview short versions of the songs on Youtube here.
Here’s the soundtrack trailer:
Also here’s previews of the new beginner music:
The final graphics changes are now in game, and the worlds are all named now. In Classic Mode, Palm Beach (world 1), Elder Forest (world 2), and Belmoor Caverns (world 5) have all had graphical upgrades. You might want to head back for a fresh experience.

A new update is out for Puzzledorf on Steam today. Summary of changes in this update:
Music and Graphics
The new music for Classic Mode has now been added to the game, as well as the new graphics for Worlds 3 and 4 of Classic Mode. There are also new, animated title and menu screens. You can hear previews of the music added so far here. There is also new music coming for Christmas mode, but that will be released in another update.
There have been minor volume adjustments to the base levels of the sound effects and music so existing players may want to adjust their volumes again.
Pricing hasn’t changed yet. I will release the new Christmas music very soon, then when I update the graphics in the following update (probably in August), I will increase the price of the game to $10 USD, as well as release the new official Soundtrack to buy on Steam at $10 USD.
When the Ruins update gets released later in the year, which is a significant content update with new puzzles, the price will be raised one last time to $10 USD. I have plans to release more content for Puzzledorf after that, but no plans for further price increases. Except some more updates with free new puzzles in the future. I also have plans to port Puzzledorf to console, probably looking into this after the Ruins update.
Beyond that, my attention has been turning towards other projects. I have started toying around with a fun little RPG prototype (shown below) that may evolve into a full game. More on that in the future.
To celebrate the approach of Christmas, a free new update for Puzzledorf releases today on Steam and Humble Bundle! The update adds 2 more worlds with a new mechanic – sliding on ice. Once you push a block, it will continue sliding until it hits another object – and oh, they’re actually not blocks this time, you’re pushing presents! You can see a glimpse in the trailer below.
There’s lots of candy canes, christmas presents, snow and snowmen! Furthermore, the Christmas puzzles will be unlocked from the start, so all new and existing players can enjoy them immediately. And as an extra little touch, the snow levels from the original game now have animated snow falling down, too.
The first few levels start off easy but the last couple should present a good challenge to anyone who has completed the original puzzles. Newcomers will enjoy it, but if you’re looking for some more challenges to sink your frozen teeth into, you won’t be disappointed! The update is out now, so what are you waiting for? Go play it now. I’ve added a couple of images from the update below.
Oh, and Steam cloud saves are now enabled.
Puzzledorf is finally live today on Steam and Humble Bundle! Get ready to start solving puzzles and pushing blocks!
You can see the launch trailer below.
Welcome to Puzzledorf, the land of puzzles! Puzzledorf is full of vibrant, block-pushing puzzles where simplicity meets surprising solutions. This game will help teach you how to solve puzzles as you go; a puzzle game for everyone.
Puzzledorf is a fun way to exercise your brain whilst immersing yourself in the vibrant, 2D art.
“The classic box pushing puzzle game is especially fun if set up well, and Puzzeldorf is short, sweet, but immensely satisfying... The soundtrack is highly recommended if you want a very soothing soundtrack to relax to.”
94/100 – CCGR
