Yeah, I like the graphics!

Wish undo wasn't disabled, I don't think it improves the experience.

Very good mechanics and the pixels. But man this is hard. Like Draknek said, wish undo wasn't disabled.

Nice. Lots of levels. It is sometimes hard to understand what will move when you pushing something, but I guess thats just a learning curve.

Nice art and good puzzle game, not utterly original but well made.

Really nice puzzle game here. It was a pleasure to play. I dig the style and the way that it would zoom out for bigger boards. Clever mechanic and use of the theme!

Unique entry, I enjoyed playing it.

Sometimes the way way things stick together is a little counter intuitive, but I was able to acclimate. Still, it made solving the puzzles a bit harder because there was often possibilities I didn't consider until I accidentally performed them.

Cool art direction. The sound style combined well, though the movement sound got old fast, considering how often movement happens.

Overall a nice entry. I found it difficult, but not in a bad way. Thanks for sharing!

Pixel for pixel, probably the best bang for the buck you can get at Ludum Dare. Although I did punch a hole through my display around level 4 or 5...

Nice puzzle game for sure. Think the difficulty curve might be a little high, but maybe that's just me.

Sucker for pixel art so I enjoyed that. The mechanics are smartly done. Reading the instructions, I was confused about moons, but playing around with them - they make sense. Undo and more audio would have been nice. Great job!

It's a little hard to distinct elements, but when you are used to it, the game reveals depth and challenge. Congrats !

25 levels! that is insane, how do you do that much in 48 hours? Pixelated graphics was something to see and the mechanics were interesting. Well done!

Great puzzlescript with cool graphics. The pushing planets mechanic felt weird but also powerful as it let you do things many other block pusher don't. Great job! :)

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.
