I really love this one! It's a cool concept that takes a few rounds to understand, but it's very nail-biting and satisfying when you finally figure it out and beat it! Graphics are great, and it fits the theme perfectly. One suggestion: it would be nice if your "program" from the last round persisted so you could just tweak what you did last time. Also, ability to add steps between steps when "programming." But I do think it's great overall.

Well, I didn't really understand, and the fact that I need to restart the game everytimes to avoid that black screen is annoying... but if we forget that, it was fun.

Really good. Hard to understand at first, but fun to play.
I'd love to see more!

The game was different. I liked the movement and design. It did take me a while to learn how to play tho.

When you first understand what is happening, then the game is really fun. Some music and a better introduction to game, and you will have a super great game. Well done.

Very interesting concept. But the Reset button not working is a bit of a hassle.

Had fun finding out the right sequence of actions! Also, showing funny comments after failing can add some more flavor. :)

It is possible to win without killing the bad guys. Maybe it is not what you wanted.

Cool I win, or I think so =)
This is very good Idea and interesting realization of it. I think you can release it if will include more levels and insert more things.

P.S. please dont fogot to rate my game -

Pretty cool, a bit of audio would have gone a long way to add to the cinematic style atmosphere, highlighting which objects were interactable would also have been helpful, but not having that is sort of a feature to make the user look around more and try clicking on things. The camera panning could get annoying after the first couple of attempts. Also some feedback about how long the different actions are going to take and how much time will be left might be nice. Overall liked it, would have played more

Fun! The graphics and the way you handled the camera were great. Even though, it was confusing at first as the game does little to teach you how to play it. Also, I'd suggest adding some sound, it can really do a lot for the mood of the game :) Great entry.

Cool game, would do better with a tutorial or something to explain the game.

pretty fun ;D could use some music.
It seemed a bit too easy though.. took around 4 minutes at the most.

Very interesting concept! The game is very fun in it's current state and it looks very good for a LD game, it would be nice if you could pause the action and reconsider your decisions on the fly like in SuperHot! Also the fact that you have to restart the game every time makes it a bit frustrating in the beginning, other than that it's a great game and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Fun game, would be nice if there was a little more though. The graphics and animations are pretty good for being made is such short time
