    Pull - maloki - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    As a lone pixel that gains consciousness in a user's display, you try to make through the graphical mazes until the end.

    Pull is a puzzle game with 28 levels, all solvable. :)

    This is my first LD Compo entry. Tried before but ended up with no time to work on it. x.x Didn't have much time for this so had to do this quickly as well. :P


    Arrow Keys - Move
    Space - Grab
    R - Reset level
    Y - Start over from the first level
    M - Toggle Music On/Off
    N - Toggle Sound Effects On/Off
    Esc - Exit

    Blogged a bit here: http://dev.maloki.net/ :D

    Great game. Difficulty of the puzzle a bit uneven, but graphics was beautiful.

    I tried to arrange the puzzles according to difficulty after some playtesting, but it's hard to do after doing these puzzles again and again, and the puzzle difficulty seemed to vary from person to person. x.x

    I'm a sucker for puzzle games, so anything that pulls it off (pun intented) get a good vote by me.

    Innovative puzzle game. There's a lot of potential. Really liked it and so many levels.

    It is simple, clean and nice idea. I pressed ESC once and left application accidentally :) I like it! I don't see solution for level 26 yet (up to here 1792 moves) but it is good news. I will come back.

    Good game! Very interesting mechanic. Levels were fun. Not much else to say. Overall well made game. Good music. Good controls. Rated fairly high. :)

    Enjoyed this more than I thought I would and the music is better than most entries.

    Loved the puzzles. Didn't really feel challenged until level 19, and couldn't get past level 27. Slightly steeper challenge curve in the first ten levels would make this shine.

    Awesome job! I beat it with a score of 3370 and I felt pretty good about myself afterward :).

    I think there's a pretty good difficulty progression overall. Level 27 and 28 are really devious!

    Good job with the music. Do I detect iNudge? ;)

    The graphics are the weak link and the theme connection is weak at best. The trail on the "pixel" was a very nice touch but without better graphics and plot connection the game seems a bit sterile. There was one point where I felt like a lab rat after a bit of cheese.

    A puzzle game is no short feet and this super-simple yet super-innovative entry is terrific overall. Nice job!

    Beat it with a score of 1331:) I feel almost elite.

    Honestly, I feel the same way about the theme in this game. I thought of putting some story into it as the puzzles progressed but they got thrown out the window. x.x

    And yup, music was done with iNudge: http://inudge.net/#/h327 :D

    That was great! Simple gameplay yet with some very tricky puzzles. I do think that some of the levels weren't really in order of difficulty tho, but then again that might just be me.

    Love it! Audio is nice, originality isn't perfect but only being able to pull and automatically grabbing all surrounding you is pretty sweet. Got stuck on level 25 though and ragequit

    + Plenty of levels
    + I've never seen this mechanic before
    + Graphic simplicity

    - The music loop was a bit repetitive
    - The first 20 or so levels are too easy
    - You could have added at least one more mechanic/block type

    * Overall, I enjoyed your game. Thank you for a nice puzzle.

    This is fantastic! What a great variation on all the block pushing games.
