That was a lot of fun! Getting some Monument Valley vibes going on here gameplay wise. Dragging everything around was a pretty fluid experience, but I did have a few issues with the camera controls being a little finicky. The level difficulty felt to spike and then go down- the last level was much easier than the previous level, but other than that it did a good job teaching the mechanics smoothly.

Wow! Really cool idea! It looks great! I would make the camera movement similar to how unity's scene view does it. But other that that awesome!

I love this idea,especially that snap of the pieces. Slow in match is nice! If you take it farther I would base your camera around the average 3D modeling program with a little bit of FPS WASD as a suggestion :)

I like your game (idea, graphics, etc.), but the controls were bad. :(

You should be able to "cancel" moving the row by placing it in similiar position as on start. If you move it even a little bit slightly, it will move anyways.

The controls of sprite/camera were little bit complex/befuddling/uncomfortable, it was really hard to move across the room, rotate the camera, etc. easily. Honestly, if WASD/arrows controlled the character (or keep the primary click on mouse to choose the target, not sure what would work better in the end) and all the camera stuff was done with a mouse (inspire yourself in Blender/Unity/etc. for the scroll wheel hold/scroll to move/rotate/zoom!), the experience would be nicer I guess? :)

Also, after reseting a level, I got stuck and couldn't move the sprite.

The controls were a bit hard (maybe mouse wheel to zoom would work, or movements relative to camera), but still usable. Might work as a first person game with some sort of a gun even. Really liked the concept, good work.

I love this, I was being a bit stupid and not reading the instructions, then I accidentally rotated the room/section, such a cool moment. I did find the controls a little difficult with regards to the camera, I would of liked E and Q to be up and down. Great job though!

This got a "Woah" out of me, but I think the concept exceeded the control scheme...

Maybe things would fall into place if the camera was outside the cube? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The camera certainly didn't help me understand what I was supposed to do, but overall, the Rubix idea of rotating the room was very nice, and the game would be great if polished and with a lot more puzzles. Great job!

Also, the character looks cute!

Very interesting concept. The camera controls are really wonkey, and it's hard to know what way the rows are going to rotate when dragging. But overall very innovative. Great job, just fix the camera :)

This is a very cool concept. It's a bit claustrophobic but I guess that's inline with the theme. Really impressive technically :)

Cool concept you have there! Took me a while to figure it out but was surprised when I discovered how to rotate the pieces. The complex controls are a bit unfortunate because otherwise it's a pretty solid puzzle entry! Would love to see some audio as well. Good job!

Man, what a crazy game. It was a kinda confusing to play, but I think you have the beginning of something. I really like how you can walk up a slope block to transition between walking on the ground and walking on the wall. You could do heaps with that. Nice entry!
