This is to be constructive feedback - not a rip - I think what you are doing here is absolutely wonderful. Besides, others have clearly been able to intuit fantastic solutions. I do not expect a reply. This is more for your edification than mine.
The popup help should get out of the way. It was in my way most of the time.
On the mac when I try to zoom in it more often zooms out. (and zooming out work correctly)
The server should be more responsive or I should be able to work on the next puzzle while the program uploads results in the background.
I find the scoring rather unintuitive. I make a move and the structure gets better (by score) then I move it some more and it gets worse. So I put it back where it was the points go down again. What does that mean? I was rotating a section to hide the hydrophobic. In this case the movements are rather precies, as oppose to a move/drag (which could be difficult ,if not impossible, to return to a previous position). So, I rotate one direction and it gets better, too much it gets worse, but then it is worse again when I rotate it back to were it was better just before. Even if not in the exact same position the score was going up the entire time in the initial direction. Why would it go down when rotating back? Anyhow, wash rinse repeat until I have zero points. What is happening here? I had to reset and do the same thing several times until it actually worked but it did not feel like I accomplished any thing. The popup help kept getting in the way telling me all I had to to was tweek but it was not working.
The next issue I had was with the restructure puzzle. I changed the structure and presumed a shake and wiggle would nestle it in as it did to 8200-ish. (Later I noticed the help also indicate the same thing). However, it only brought the score up to 8200 of 8600. Grabbing it an moving it, then wash rinse repeat and the score when up eventually nudged to just over 8400. Each time It looked the same to my untrained eye and but went up a few points. This was boring, unintuitive, and not fun. I quite to give this feedback.
These things do not make sense to me. That and the slow contact with your server are a huge turnoff.
