Mondrian

I’ve had a good night sleep, a fulfilling breakfast, now lets get to work. I’m thinking of going for a puzzle game based on the paintings of artist Piet Mondrian, a painter in the Minimalism art movement. Here is one of his famous compositions:

In this game, each painting is a level where your only available interaction is in moving the lines. In doing so, you can increase or decrease the size of the coloured squares. The goal of the game is to get to a point where the coloured squares all have the same surface area. An starter level would have each line only affect one square. In a more complicated level, moving one line affects multiple squares.

What do you think? The only worry I have is that the game is either too easy, or too difficult, and plain not fun. Any ideas?
