In case you get stuck or don't want to play all the levels, I made a 2 minute long video showing the completion of all levels.

Great game, it's not an entirely unique concept for a puzzle, but you've put together a great progression of levels, and I love them all.

Very difficult, but well made.
It took me a bit to understand the swapping thing.
Good, minimalist graphics, good design, it's hard to find a negative.
Very well done!

Cool idea! Love it but would have liked a "in-game" tutorial. For example that you can not go back to the tile you where on.

Looks and feels great! I'm horribly bad at this game though :(

Great game! Very minimalistic and a nice difficulty curve without any instruction needed :D

The overlapping spin-star parts are tough!

Nice puzzle game, however i'm not sure it fits the theme as you have multiple levels that pops on screen. I'll not rate it.

Cool design game, very challenging. Good job.

Dec 12, 2014 @ 3:26pm

This was quite neat and challenging. Nice job!

Great job with this! The spinning puzzles were especially tricky. You've animated the green square just enough: any less and it might be jerky, any more and it might disrupt the minimalist aesthetic you've gone with.

sone music jingle (3-4 notes ) on level succes would add a lot to the game mood.

"Nice take on a classic", the man said it.
Dunno if someone has already made the comparison, but I felt back to pokemon's puzzles (with tp) :D
Well done !

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
