I liked the mood & ambience. A little confused about my goals, but maybe I'm not thinking about it abstractly enough.

That's okay, thanks for the feedback. There isn't any end goal. You basically avoid the little black balls. Crushing them with the blocks works the best. But each time you drop a block, the world gets smaller, and each time you hit one of the black balls, the world gets much bigger. I suppose the goal is survival.

This is very odd. The gameplay is there, I suppose, but in the oddest scenario ever.

this had a nice atmosphere. reminded me a little of intelligent qube/kurushi, but it hink that was just the sound effects. it's an interesting concept.

Very strange game. I'm not sure I totally understand it.

I like the concept and the mood the art and sound give off. I didn't really see any problem with dropping a bunch of boxes though cause the black balls run into them and it makes it pretty easy.

I... have no idea what's going on. xD But besides that, it's entertaining and, interesting, to say the least.

Although my poor laptop had some problems running it, I think this is cool. I like the idea of protecting yourself with blocks. I think a good game could come from developing this idea.

The same as "Incredible Ape" : strange and confuse.

But I found the ambience very nice. there is a concept to develop.

Good work :)

The game play is cool!!! If there is high score system, it will be awesome!

It was good, my only suggestions is some kind of scoring system. Fun stuff though, nice job!

I think I see where you were going with this, but it didn't quite get there for me. The mechanics and mood look like they have potential, congrats on getting something done!

A little bit confusing at first, and then a bit too easy. I think with some more constraints on the player it could be really fun. I liked the color palette and the ambiance. The blocks looked really cool too. The fuzzy black edges sort of give an illusion of refractive glass blocks. Keep working on it!

Weeeeeeeird. I can avoid the black balls for quite a while, but eventually the world spazzes out pretty hardcore. Eerie. I had a good experience. :)

Somewhat enjoyable, needed a bit more to it though. Well done anyway.

The game is quite strange, and the camera seemed a bit unreliable. Don't know if I got it right or what.

I thought it, so I'll say it: "avant-garde." Okay, I feel better now.

This was cool. What do the lines on the world and the ball mean?

A confusing and disorienting game, yet strangely compelling :) Liked music+mood.
