Whoa! pretty original!

Haha I laughed pretty hard at the punchline in the intro, so random. I'm amazed that your mind went to that fairy tale when thinking of an idea for the theme. Fun stuff, enjoyed it.

I'm going to need some peas and quiet after all the pea puns in this game.

Hahaha, I loved all these pea-related puns and the intro was really cool! I enjoyed the mechanic and I think that's a cool take on the theme! Nice job!

It's like Kerbal Space Program and Jenga mated (I approve). It took me moment to get that the peas, are under the mattress, and then my head hurt.

I'm not proud. I'm just a guy who likes puns and physics puzzles. Quite pea-leased to have tried this game.

Nice physics-based gameplay and one of the most unique games I've played this compo.

amazing. Aside from the goofy slapstick comedy that comes from the physics, there's a really quirky, charming, punny sense of humor behind this wonderfully silly little game.
I'm so happy that this exists.

Whut? This was rather funny:), would have apriciated if the clicks were a bit more powerfull, now it takes a long long time to get to the other side of the room

The music is quite annoying, and I think the physics needs more fine tuning.
On the third level, I had the princess land on the red square, yet I didn't go to the next level, instead it said the princess had pealummeted. You should check if the princess is atop the red square. I then gave up.
The strong points of your game are humor and originality.

Hahah nice game ! I love the novelty ! Really interesting game, great idea and very well implemented !

Really unique game. It just gets very tedious to slowly move forward and keeping everything in balance. Dropping the princess safely at the goal in the third level, was impossible for me.

A strange idea. I'm surprised the balance of the mattress is still kept after frantic clicking, I would think it would much more unstable than that. I think this might be interesting to play on a touch screen device.

At first I was peased but then the punshing levels took out all the peasure.

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.
