The last level is ultra hard. That was intentional, since there are only 5 levels :)
Move with WASD/Arrow keys.

Nice, very neat core mechanic :)

Very clever mechanic. Surprisingly tricky to work out the best way to edit the level ;)

Neat game, and the ability to move the blocks around was cool. I thought moving them around was a little iffy on my mouse. IDK if it was the game or just my mac mouse, but i had to click and drag a few times to get it to where I wanted the platforms. Overall neat idea.

Nicely done, though it ended just as I was getting into it :)

Very nice game mechanics!
You really wasn't joking about the 5th level! ;)

Oh gawd... Thanks guys!

You don't know what that means to me. Initially I thought my game had turned into a bunch of nonsense and bad level design. But now I'm really glad and happy with the game, and I'm going to keep working on it and get a proper artist and release a better version!

PS: I still think my level design is crappy :P

Nice puzzles, 5 whole levels as well! The final level was too much for me I must confess; perhaps a more gentle difficulty ramp in a longer release?! Liked the music and the scrolling backgrounds too. Crisp controls, good stuff!

Neat mechanic once I got it. At first I was confused though, and moving the platforms seemed broken (I didn't realize there was a "life meter" for platform movement).

I enjoyed it more and more as I played. The last level was hard, but interesting enough for me to push through. I think this has potential with some refinements: (1) drag, rather than select and click again for drag, and (2) drag "life-meter" used maybe should be based on the final distance you drag it to rather than the exact path you take ('cause if you accidentally drag it to the wrong square as you're dragging it, you use up too much).

Nice, very enjoyable! I got the last level on my first go though, I don't know what everyone is on about :P

One time on the last level I managed to drag a block offscreen, though.

I for one would certainly be interested in seeing more of this, if you do end up making a longer version.

Hello all, thanks a lot for the replies!

@icefallgames I am already working on a better version of it and I'll release it when I have proper art and music (and levels!). (1) is already added in the new version, (2) is being implemented now!

@Terra thanks for being interested. I'll contact you once I release the final version of the game!

The mechanic was really fun, but I felt that you maybe would have done more with it. Nice game though :)

Gameplay is really great, 5 star innovative!

Interesting, I really like the idea of a puzzle platformer with moveable blocks. The controls could have been made a little smoother though, more specifically the jumping. But overall nice job.

Dragging the blocks was buggy..

Nice mechanic. Just think the gravity was to strong in my opinion.
