Neat how many shapes you can make with simple moves against blocking objects.

That's a really simple idea that plays out beautifully. Wow.

Got stuck at lvl 16 :c

Really nice take on the theme. And the puzzles are amazing!

Thank you all for the kind words :) For those, who're stuck on the 16th level, I'll make adjustments for the post-compo version, but for now, try plugging in the drains (the black squares with the boxes) :)

Nice little game! I was able to breeze through the first few levels and then it got very challenging! Nice work

Really neat mechanic, and a different take on the theme. I played through all 20 levels, and enjoyed it quite a bit.

Super interesting mechanic, plays really well once you get the hang of it and allows for a surprising number of neat puzzles. Great job!

Good job. All fives, that was awesome. The only thing that would have been nicer is if there was full screen and gamepad support. Still, very awesome.

Had to really think about the levels.
And now you've sold me on checking out puzzle script.

Just fantastic. All around fantastic.

Loved the wrap-up text. Went to rate 5/5 in humor, but the category isn't open! Sadness. :c

Nice game. It is funny and addictive. I like the mechanic you used for shapeshifting.

Naca says ...
Apr 29, 2016 @ 5:24pm

Very clever puzzle concept!! I enjoyed a lot :D Also, good use of the theme. I played through the 20 levels and in my opinion the learning curve and increasing difficulty is very well balanced. Good job! Could work very well for mobile if you add more levels.

Pretty clever puzzle game, simple, but really innovative & complex! Good job!

Apr 30, 2016 @ 5:41pm

gave me the same kinda headaches sokoban does, i might even like this better conceptually, thumbs up!

Xanjos says ...
Apr 30, 2016 @ 8:22pm

Gets pretty interesting after level 10 but this is a rather fun take on a Sokoban-type puzzle game.

Awesome ideia and gameplay!
Wish it had some sound to be a little more immersive and to have a better mood. Nevertheless, Gj!

This was awesome! You had a very very good idea, and you made something awesome out of it.

You made many different levels, there was a good difficulty/complexity curve, and the introduced interesting new mechanics and forced us to use the same mechanics in many different way. I really have nothing to criticize concerning the game play. One level was maybe a little less good then the others, I forgot the number, it's around 17 I think : you just had to move to a lot of water from the top to the bottom just my following a swirly road, so it wasn't difficult but long... That's really just a detail, the level design was very good !

You could have worked more on the graphics and audio, but I suppose you already now that... There was some sound effects, and those were good. The orange-square pushing sound was still played when you pressed against them put couldn't move them, maybe that's not intended ?

You could have made a level selector of some sort...

I really have few things I can criticize. The game was really fun to play through : good job !

Great compo entry, I enjoyed it a lot. The theme-related mechanics are unique, super clever and well executed and the level design is just awesome. It's fun and I played untit il I beat the 20th level, great difficulty curve ! One of the best Puzzlescript games I've ever played.

May 6, 2016 @ 7:41pm

Great use of the theme, interesting concept and good puzzles!

May 8, 2016 @ 6:59pm

This is a really fun block pushing style puzzle game. The wee quote from bruce lee was a nice choice for an opening cutscene thing. I struggle to think of any way to improve what you already have here. Good Job :D

MSiddeek says ...
May 8, 2016 @ 7:06pm

This is the kind of game I like! Simple but very deep mechanics! Great job!!!

Completed the whole thing. ^^

It wasn't particularly innovative idea (I've seen games with multiple pieces/characters moving at once already), but it was well designed and executed, nonetheless. Could be fun to have even more puzzles, maybe (though given I'm about to get some sleep, it's probably for the better there aren't too many levels)?

Overall, I kinda liked what you did here. ^^

Well done. I haven't seen a single puzzlescript games in the jam. You had some clever puzzles, though I beat the whole thing.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
