Bug Description

This is actually a nice feature, since You can tell how easy/hard it would be to find a combination.
Many people I know like to know there are options. . . to know "how many moves till a game over" they tell me smiling.

I agree.

This is why I propose to add this feature. There should be an algorithm to calculate this, right?

Also, those misterious small bold letters on the right-hand bottom corner of the window. . .
It took me a while to realize that it was my Score! :P

This is I would like to suggest a mock-up I made using GIMP. It would look lovely being implemented, trust me :)

Any critics, ideas, wishes will be welcome! I want this game to become more of a blast than it already is! :)

Actually, I've just edited gweled.ui with Glade UI designer and reached the desired result.
Just like on the mock-up. :)

I just don't know where or how to put the number of moves left.
I've attached the design. If You have some extra time, please take a look, as it's most likely to improve the overall experience of the game :)

Hi, thank you for the interest in improving Gweled project.

Ok for fix the score display, I will correct it immediately.

For display the available moves, are you sure that is useful? Every move can change up or down this value. For the implementation isn't very hard, already a check is done for the availabe move, if no stop the game and show the "game over". Just count how many.

Changed in gweled:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
importance: Wishlist → Low

Yes, it is good news that implementing this won't be hard. At all, as I see. :)
Well, seeing how many moves are left gives a person some, well, I don't know... hope?
I'm not really sure how to express it. It feels more comfortable to know that U have 3 moves available than being at a loss not knowing how many moves are left at all! :)

Well, that's just my opinion anyway. I just hope more people share it :)

Can we have a poll of some sort?

Oh I have refined the icons a bit. Attaching the picture as I type.

I don't think much people will vote for it. But I agree with Giorgi, it's a nice feature and not hard to implement, and I don't think it cost to much from you're processor.

I would also find it useful to know how many moves are possible. My vote goes for yes.

So, the score appears to be fixed. Will the moves left be added? Perhaps with a preference check box on whether it should be displayed or not? I could maybe do this?
