Interesting, but I did not try to complete the level (the puzzle is really hard ^^).

Very solid and simple. Having certain tiles randomly flipped at the start is a nice touch to make the puzzle more challenging.

Eh gads, I hate these kinds of puzzles, I can never get them right!! Nice job though, a bit of polish would really go a long way. Solid overall.

If you quickly click two tiles next to each other some tiles will get stuck in the turning animation.

Also the turning animation could be a little bit faster and there could be some simple sounds (do you know Sfxr?).

Other than that it's an interesting challenge :)

Tough, I couldn't get the last 4 flipped.

i used to have a toy version of this when i was little, must have spent hundreds of hours trying to figure it out.

Enjoyed it, but couldn't finish.

I am not good at it, lol, but it feels good to click the tiles :)

Small, but very solidly done :)

It would've been nice to have a limit. After a while it's just trial and error to make it smaller and smaller. This is also a fairly common puzzle game.

Great idea, really challenging! A counter for already flipped tiles as well as a smaller level to start with would be nice, but it's a lot of fun as is.

It's very hard with such a large board, but it's minimalist, fun and fits theme

Very cool. It would help tremendously to have a (much) smaller tile grid to begin with - a 'level 1' that could be completed in just a click or two.

this kind of puzzle is really hard with this size of the board ... it could have used something that motivates the player to keep going (for example if there is more than one level something like a text saying it's only level one so he knows there are more).

Hi. Would suggest starting levels much simpler, to allow player to experience success. Was not clear what the objective was, can reveal image behind fairly quickly - at least to know what it is...

Solid little puzzle game! The size of the grid could have been a bit smaller. Also I was not able to remove the last few bits. I hope I did not miss anything important. Nice work.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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 ( 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.
