I have played it a few times but find it very hard to 'seal' a breach, I managed to seal 2 and then I am toast! I just keep bouncing around as if I were drunk making it very difficult to get to the problem areas. It might be better with levels so that you can start with 2 breaches then 3... Maybe I am just too old? Maybe Trump will stay on as President...

Its definitely possible to win, as I tested yesterday extensively, though my brother found it similarly difficult. The key to navigating is like driving a car skidding on ice: steer firmly in the direction you wish to go.

But your idea is a good one. A lot of the challenge is figuring out where the breaches form, so a gradual rampup might make sense.

This contest version is very much a proof of concept, and I certainly intend to refine it further.
