    ... I submitted that last comment way too soon.

    I do like it, but I also found a bug. If you go into the door to the right of the third level, it seems like you just disappear. You can still put the painting back if you move left, though, your player just isn't on the screen. Going through the left door works fine though :-)

    I think i found a bug. In the 3rd level I went to the the exit in the right and nothing happens. When I try to come back the character was invisible and i can't interact with anything.

    Hi all - please don't try to exit through the right side of the level. The floor runs out just past that door, and the game is pretty much unwinnable after that. I'll upload a patch at some point in the next day to prevent that from happening.

    The only way to complete a level is by exiting through the LEFT side.

    Really though first level, I think that one needs to be just a little bit easier. But great idea nonetheless.

    Simple, yet enjoyable. I like the gameplay idea, though I wish there was an easier way to switch between colours quickly. The graphics and music are suitable. The only major issue I have is that it's far too short. I understand you had limited time, but still...

    There should be more levels though.
    still, GREAT!

    Indeed a very enjoyable experience, and quite polished considering the format. Definitely something worth pushing forward, in my opinion.

    its an OK game...but it just gets repetitive after that, and the pattern of guards is noticeable, making it even more repetitive.

    Interesting idea, pretty fun. But you need to give it some variety.
