Make the squares move faster! That's a core mechanic and it gets awfully annoying to wait for them to slide across the screen. Otherwise I love it!

Not really fond of the scoring system, but I find the theme perfectly represented, and the transformations are smooth.

It's creation and destruction.

I realy like the main mechanism but it's a little boring to wait so much time before to perform an another movement

Nice looking abstract puzzle game! ... but the slow moves break the gameplay :/

Agree on making the squares move faster, having to wait before I could click again was pure pain, especially when moving across the entire screen. :P
But that's my only complaint, amazing concept. The minimal audio matches it perfectly.

well done!

Really interesting concept. At the beginning it's hard to find a way to play well, but otherwise it's quite addictive! I liked the graphics too. Good job.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
