I loved the minimalist graphical style. A really nice combination of retro Atari and neo physics.

This is really well made! You've mastered the core mechanic, now just expand on it and add more puzzles and this will be a really awesome game!

Great game, but it's so short! The ending was AWESOME. :D

Nice! The block physics feels really solid, except trying to get the blocks into 1-block-high gaps early on. Good puzzle design. Please expand this, I want to play more :)

I liked the minimalist graphics. The core mechanic is pretty interesting, and I did like how the physics were different to allow for crazy stacking solutions to problems. Good work!

great example of how powerful, solid mechanics trumps complex graphics. Let this be a lesson to us all.

Simple graphics and gameplay but really well made. The music and sounds go well with the style. Good job.
If you try to drop a block inside another is stays with the mouse and the beam disappears which seems a bit odd.

Zeeeeeep.

Excellent number of well-thought out puzzles! Thanks for this.

Mechanic is perfect. Very simple and intuitive. Could easily take this concept further! However I do have a soft spot for puzzles.

Solid game! Simple graphics and a simple mechanic that works very well with the level design, I liked it!

Simple and clean. Could do with some fun feedback and dynamics to make it more enjoyable, like lasers (and other items?) updating in realtime as you move the boxes, so you can sort of play around with them instead of just arranging to solve the puzzle. There were a few moderately challenging parts, but overall it was pretty easy to get through. No game-breaking bugs that I could find, so props for that. Seems like a scenario where those could easily pop up.

Very solid. I liked the audio.

May 5, 2011 @ 8:41pm

Amazing to see how it does work without having any graphics :-)

I think that just the tiniest touch of particle effects or graphical juice could really help this a ton. The game is brilliant, I loved the last level.

Interesting gameplay mechanic. Even more awesome ending :)

Solid game. A little slow, but challenging and fun.

No timelapse? Sad timelapse watcher over here.
Great game though. Awesome simple audio, had fun playing here. The ending was surprising, but i just hate.... i don't tell but meh. Nice game though.

This a really solid game.:)
It just somehow lacks real challenge. .
The puzzles are fun and the platforming is cool.. the last part is the best one.:)
Over a very nice polished game that is pretty addictive.

Very nice, but a bit easy. =)
I think this game has very interesting and nicely done gameplay features, expanding it with better graphics (8bit style?) would make this a hit. =)
Good job!

A nice exploration of this interesting mechanic. Great work on level design!

Ha, great minds think alike. :) It's almost eerie how similar this is to my game in some respects. Mayhaps Portal 2's lasers have something to do with it? My sounds/music pale in comparison to yours, though.

Brilliant - well done!

Nifty idea, makes for quite a few nice puzzles. This is a concept you could really expand on well!

Good stuff. :) The music and sound effects really went well together. I found all of the puzzles pretty easy, except for the last one, which I think I beat the wrong way (jumped and moved a block under my feet while in the air!) but I do love doing that.
