The game is difficult. The mechanics are very solid, I like it.

Clever game, almost rubic's cube like. I could see this being a mobile app.

Brainfucking game... nice first level... it shows all the mechanics and how to play the game :) But then the second level fucked my brain... I had two beers with friends and I cannot keep my mind uo... i build the first two row like i want them to have... but then i must move one piece down in one of the dashes and everthing is destroyed... I love those games... I like puzzles... but you really need a beer mode... for people like me ;) Or some more of the beginners levels :) Really good designed puzzle games... nice use of the theme... Have a nice day and keep it going... thanks for rating my game tho!

I like the core puzzle mechanic. Pretty solid. I would prefer moving the tiles by swiping. Some easing in the movement could make it more appealing.

This reminds me of the game cogs. Good call on theme placement.

This would make an awesome mobile game!
Also, a friendly tip: You don't need those .pdb files in public releases, they are for debugging and make the download huge. ;)

Fun puzzle game!
A little repetitive (maybe the procedural generation is the cause, I don't know...)
I like the mood.

Fun game. I'd suggest making it a bit easier on early levels and scaling the difficulty up, but that's just balancing.
It's a very nice made game.

Really great puzzle game, good job on the procedural generation although it sometimes felt really difficult.

This feels like a very complete game, the artstyle and the sound effect when moving the rows and columns fits perfectly, difficulty scales well, I solved about 4 puzzles before it got too difficult for me.

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.
