Enjoyed it, I played it a bunch of times hoping something awesome would happen if I got every block right, but nothing happens :(

You are absolutely right! I plan to make a version out of competition to add that... Thank you!

In web version, the boxes don't have colour but only "RAH" fix this bug! :)
I understand the concept though, pretty cute :) not sure if it's related to tiny world though

Rah ! I don't have this bug :( I will try to fix it anyway...
This is a game about pixels inside a city inside a computer screen, I thought the theme was respected ^^' Maybe it will be more explicit with my idea of ​​cinematic when the player wins!
Thank you for your feedback :)

This game feels like smooth rubber. I like it. Something should happen when you finish the image. And it'd be nice if you could move more than one slot by keeping left/right pressed.

Feels really smooth, nice concept, nice opening

An automatic level-transition and maybe larger oens later on would improve it a lot, maybe consider forming a larger Image out of the single ones

Would be really nice to see more of it

Neat concept. I love the opening animation too. The gameplay is smooth and the audio really adds a nice feel to the interaction.

I wish there was more of a reward at the end though.

Great game! Disappointing lack of ending :(

Interesting gameplay, nice music and gfx... I think it should detect you end a level at least. Congrats

Absolutely loved it! I had a lot of fun figuring out the puzzle of what colors to do in what order and doing it quickly so that my score won't go down. The audio is great, subtle and muted but still there. Graphics are nice, and the colors are lovely. I really enjoyed this! If you went further, I would love to see the pixel charts I make get pieced together (after different rounds) to make a larger image on the computer screen. :) Great job on your first LD!!!

Cool concept. But It really needs a "well done" or "you suck" screen :D Other then that I loved the animation and story.. well done!

Hello folks!
Thanks for all your feedback :)
You can now test a post-compo version with a little ending as you had suggested to me :

Love the intro! The music is nice too. The gameplay is basic and basically fun; the chief difficulty for me was that I felt like space should drop and the arrow keys should change color, so I kept mixing those up. :) I was sort of expecting the colors coming in from the right to determine what I could drop next, which would have added a challenge...

High score 2720!

Graphics and colour scheme are great. Kind of repeating what others have said, but with a win/lose state, less control over the colours you drop, and a better graphic than "rah", this game could be frickin' amazing. Perhaps scoring over a certain % right to complete a level?

That was pretty awesome. I just had one issue, with both versions actually, and it's the starting square changing color when pressing any key to start the game. I'd totally see myself playing this on an ipod.
