I like the puzzle mechanic. At first I thought it was a bug that you move the whole row/column even with empty space between them. It makes it way more challenging. I miss audio and I don't like that you can scroll the field, as I did that often unintentionally.

Cool game, but rather unbalanced as you can often construct the shapes line by line by moving individual pieces.

Good job! I thought that the concept and gameplay was incredibly interesting and fun! The only note I have is that the controls seem a bit difficult with the mouse. It seemed almost too sensitive, but that's the only problem I have... good job!

What a fun little game! Cute and satisfying. It would be interesting if there was a move counter and the challenge was to find the most efficient way to rearrange the tiles.

Amazing concept!! Deceivingly simple, but it turns out to be a very cool puzzle.

Interesting idea, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes quite repetitive. You just mechanically insert tiles one by one. I think it would be much more interesting with limited space to move the pieces around.

Nice, you are right, it is similar to mine indeed, fun to play, well done :)
But like BoltKey I also think it would profit from more restrictive movement.

Interesting puzzle game, I played a dozen levels before getting bored due to repetitiveness. After a couple levels it quickly gets easy actually, once you have a strategy that fits all cases (mine was to build things line by line and moving the finished lines to the side).

A restart button would have been nice, since at some point I lost a pink figure far on the left. Since a glitch prevents us from scrolling too far on the left or top I had troubles retrieving it.

Having no borders nor move limit makes this game a bit unexpected game design-wise, but it's still satisfying to play, a bit like easy sudokus. Nice entry!

Great puzzle mechanics! It would be nice if you added a moves limit or other to make it more challenging

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.
