Wow, That first level was SOOOO hard ! I had such a difficult time making this. Please simply it in the future ! Maybe like, 3 shapes, in the good order, just to strat things up.

Otherwise, I really enjoyed it ! The mechanic is interesting and the mood is good (The intro is AWESOME !)

Fix the control a bit and ship it !

Be proud of yourself, you just made a good game :)

I gotta be honest with you, I couldn't get past the second level, but then again I never was any good at puzzles.

The big problem for me is the controls. Even once I figured the puzzle mechanic and the first level solution, it still took my many tries to execute it successfully. Touch screen precision is nothing compared to the all mighty force of the standard PC mouse.

So there's my suggestion. A PC version with some hints on what to do. The audiovisuals are already mighty fine.

You can edit the entry so that it displays "Android download" instead of "Web" It's really confusing that a "web" links lead to an APK download.

Wow. This was really fun and had really cool graphics. However, the first level was a little hard

Having trouble clearing the second puzzle, but it's a cool mechanic! I'm interested to see where it goes.

Hey, Guy.
This game is really nice!
I had fun playing it and it kind of reminded me of another mobile game.
Please keep making a game!
(Mabey add support for windows next time)
And please go and try out my game!

That was superb, one of the best entries ive tried. I think I finished the second puzzle but it didn't trigger, maybe I did it wrong. Great simple idea, but the controls were a bit finicky

It was challenging to get it to my tablet to play this, but it was a great experience. Good thing I did, the game is great, the mechanics are really cool and frankly I can see this concept turning into a good product! Also great music and intro, one of the best mood setters I saw in the LD so far.

I've installed it on my phone and I tried it.
The commands are pretty annoying and the graphics too but you used just java without frameworks or other stuff and it's hard to do.
You've done a pretty good job but I don't really like this game.
