Sorry, I couldn't run it. I got this error: Unsupported major.minor version 51.0
Perhaps my version of Java is too old? I have 1.6

Both the Google Drive links seem to be broken for me (500 Internal Server Error). Maybe try hosting somewhere else? I look forward to playing an LD game on Android.

I tried the java version and it told me "internal server error"

Very nice sliding block puzzles. I feel the difficulty ramp is a little steep after the first couple of levels, and it could do with some onboarding (how to switch stones, how to restart etc). I also wanted to know how I was doing each time- could you tell the play the optimal number of stone moves each round?

The Google Drive links are working now so I got to play on Android :-)

I found that controlling "multiple stones" was interesting and different, although sometimes got confused about which stone was "active".

The level design progressed nicely, although I didn't finish anywhere near all the levels. I couldn't get past level 4, but then again I'm not very good at these kind of puzzles anyway.

Some audio would help the game a lot.

Good job!

It was a fun game and it really made me think deeply at some point in which I wasn't really expecting that, so great job :D

pretty fun sliding puzzle clone! the puzzles were well built, not too hard, though it wouldve been nice to know the lowest possible moves for a puzzle, or at least something else.

Wow! I really love how you brought in multiple stOnes, which makes the puzzle dynamic and challenging! Great job. Your level design is great.

I thought this was going to be a standard sort of puzzle game, but it was really fun! Didn't expect it to get so difficult

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.
