Full review later, but I really liked this game. The final post winning screen is kinda glitchy though and you can click the screen and get the "you win" noise over and over until the game crashes.

@ joe40001 Thanks for finding that! Fixing this right away!

One of the best games I've played so far. My one and only complaint is that the tones you chose for drawing a path are ear piercing. They would be much more pleasant if they were a little lower pitch and all belonged to the same key.

I had a blast with this game ! Cool concept, nice sound effects, very polished gameplay. Wasn't too fond of the graphic style but it works fine. Overall this is one of the best games I played as of now, even though it's very easy for a puzzle game (most of the levels felt "random").

I really liked this game. Great job. Loved the graphics, the "story". It was fun. Creative!

Great game mechanism. Quite creative idea. Great children's game. Not really a challenge though. Nicely polished. Great work!

Simple concept but really nice implementation. Really polished and fluent. The animations, effects and sounds gives a sense of accomplishment when you've cleared a level. I'm not too fond of the gameplay concept itself though and although it gets a little more intuitive later on, I felt that it starts off too slow and quickly becomes a little repetitive, thus I didn't feel impelled enough to play through it all. Maybe consider adding more possibilities for failure other than getting stuck? I like the clean art style and with some more gameplay elements and more sense of progression between the levels this could be a hit, perfect for tablets or phones!

Nice job. Loved the transitions and animations.

whilst the 'no overlapping paths' gameplay is something I've seen before a few time, this was WONDERFUL. I don't think I've ever been quite so charmed by little jumping boxes (and I've seen a lot of jumping boxes in my time! :D)

Amazing! Very polished, fun, cute and a really great ending. The puzzles were very well designed. The difficulty curve was really good. The puzzles were challenging enough to get me thinking, but never so hard or frustrating that I gave up.

Amazing! I really loved this. The sound was so great. Every sound effect was perfectly suited and I wish I had the ability to make such perfect sounds.

Such a great feeling of polish in the whole thing. Again, great job!

Very polished, great visual style. The puzzles were not all that difficult, though in the last one I had to try a little harder.

THE best game i played so far! Loved everything about it, graphics are gorgeous, winning animation is cute and the gameplay is really fun! The mechanics are introduced well and everything makes a very polished impression.

All in all a very charming game!

I enjoyed. I found you can click the next level button many times in a row to skip levels, though.

May 1, 2013 @ 8:58pm

@GertJohnny Thanks for spotting that! Fixed now, no cheating!

Nice polish, but I have to say the confetti and box that pops up after each level was less of a reward and more of an annoyance - I'd feel more rewarded by getting to play the next level sooner!

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.
