Nicely done!

Cute, but slow and boring. Couldn't find the "Theme" in it...

Very cool idea. Some of those levels are super tough!

clever! would be cool to adapt into more of a typing education game.

Wonderful and unique, but the pacing is very slow, so it got boring too early on :(. Still a wonderful entry though!

Apr 30, 2013 @ 4:03pm

Nice! :) The graphics are very clean and the sound is not annoying at all.

I like this a lot. It's a neat concept and the level design gets really good after you get into it.

I was really confused at first because of the letter Q. I thought I was supposed to press Q. I think if you used something besides the key cap as the target item it would be a lot less confusing. But maybe that was intentional...

I don't understand if the letter shown on the "goal badge" has some significance? Some of the later levels become a bit frustrating. But this is very nice and solid work -- very fresh version of a physics-block-collapsing game!

Ahhhh, the music! It's infecting my braaaaaaain!

...Also really cool game.

Very cool. This is an interesting concept, using the keyboard like that! Whole game looks really slick! I'm impressed!

Good fun, and it looks really polished. Couldn't really find much challenge early on and gave up after a few minutes though.

Loved this one, I'm keeping it up here so I can go back to it. Wish I had speakers on this machine, but everything else was very well executed. Kudos!

Apr 30, 2013 @ 4:10pm

Music gets pretty annoying after a while... good game, good execution, cute themed puzzles, but sometimes it was just too hard to find the right key to press after the stack had half crumbled, especially with the glass blocks.

Pretty fun game overall, it's a bit slow and the last level seems quite a bit harder than the others.

Nice, well polished feel, and a unique concept.

Man, I love this one! You knocked it out of the Ludum Park! This is one I will be playing long after the compo...

This my dear sir, was brilliant. There were not enough games that map your keyboard layout to the game space. You filled that spot. It got me thinking what can be done with this idea. Great job.

Great game, I saw some screens you posted during the compo and I really wanted to play it.

Cool idea, nice music and clean design. Pretty challenging as well. Nice work!

I love the original gameplay and the smooth graphics, although I would have liked a way to skip the end of the level animation!

I really love the graphics and core gameplay on this. Well done!

You got me hooked with the music, so catchy! Lovely graphics, might need to tweak the title to be more legible.

At first I thought the strategy is to just bang my hands on the keyboard, then the later stages proved me wrong! Great take on the physics block style game!

I so like the design concept. Superb!

I have to say, the first things that drew me in were the song and the visuals. Brilliant work!

Nicely designed.

Liked it! Though music shouldn't restart when the level restarts, it becomes annoying in the later, harder levels.

The premise is a clever take on the theme as it is, but you also explored a lot of interesting possibilities with the level designs. With some above-average visual/audio design thrown in as well, it's a memorable entry overall. Solid 4 stars.

Very elegantly designed, and the levels are genuinely interesting and fun to solve. The audio is great too, except that the lack of sound effects for blocks hitting the keyboard felt weird.

A pretty original concept and with a nice difficulty curve :)

Great idea, great graphics

Madball says ...

Oh, that's very like a finished game! It's very polished, and there is much level design. I liked the music, too.

idea is great! but you should crosscheck some of your spellings again ;)

Well done!
Very good and clean concept!
I like your puzzles as your audio =)

I love the graphics.

dragonee says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 10:55pm

Very nice to use whole the keyboard for gameplay. At first using the Q and W in the middle of the keyboard has got me wrong until I learned how to play :)

Dmitrix says ...
May 5, 2013 @ 2:42am

It looks really awesome.

Colapsydo says ...
May 6, 2013 @ 7:31am

Both tunes are really nice.
Game concept is interesting, it could be nice to have some feedback regarding the cubes we save, some kind of score or contract to fulfill.

Nice concept...maybe outside of the theme but great game (and fun music).
