I really like the simplicity of this game; most puzzle games are "you move on a grid, but there's this really sick twist"; here, the puzzles aren't some mind-bending eldrich nightmare but rather the level design pushing the grid-based movement, something I really like. It does a lot with very little, very in spirit of the jam.

Really fun puzzle game! I think it could've used some more sound though

A nice puzzle game. It's a little lacking in sounds, but  I like the design.

Loved the idea and the game as well

I liked your game aesthetic very much and the movement was simple and elegant. The deduction "thingy" was a little unclear- I didn' know if 0 meant the least number of moves or not.  It's a nice puzzle game and  it has a clear theme connection. Good job! :)

Woah this game has really good mechanics and concept. I like your idea. After the 4th level, it was really challenging to play only after 1 or 2 deaths I understood how to reach the point))

Sooo I like this art and as I wrote gameplay. Good job!

Please check my game as well ;)

A fun little puzzle game. It's simple and only really lacking in sound. However, does the game deduct you points for dying? Puzzle games are all about experimentation in order to figure them out. I wouldn't punish the player for that.

Its a simple, but interesting puzzle game! The length was quite good, and you introduced the concepts in an easy to understand way! It could have more game feel to it, and the music could repeat, but overall it's very good work!

It's a pretty good puzzle game. My only complains is that it's kinda too easy, you can beat almost every level on the first try. It's a nice concept though!

Good game indeed. Levels are easy to understand, the puzzles are on point..for a first puzzle game, that's impressive !
I would had a bit more of a polish to the game, some animations, some things you know, just for polish...but that was great.

Hi - that was a good concept, your level design was great! Adding bullets that move two blocks a turn could be interesting. Overall good fun!

Submitted

Great game concept - was a fun challenge and you scaled the difficulty well with each level!

Submitted

Pretty cool concept. I like the creativity of this game.

As Basic as this looked and was it's actually a really good little game and fun I really enjoyed playing it

I had fun solving the puzzles. The level design was very good, the music was also nice. I think if you add some sound feedback when you move it would be even better.

I enjoyed all of the menu animations, the sliding menus really fit in thematically well with your game. The puzzles are fun and the use of timers with movement really creates some puzzling situations that I very much enjoyed. The puzzles having a score feature adds a lot of re-playability to the game in a very compelling way. The open boards made a ton of room for experimentation that felt very natural and added to the puzzle feeling.

If you wanted to improve. Some form of "perfect score" would be a nice addition to the game, I saw there was a deduction but had no real understanding of how it worked. I also would remove the death counter effect on score, while interesting to know, it's easy to cheat the game simply by dying a few times until you figure it out, then redoing the level to get the better score. 

Overall fun game! I hope you take this idea and expand on it some!

This is a really fun little game! I'm sure you could polish this up a little, add some levels, and you'd have a pretty nice mobile game!

My only issue is that the pixel art, mixed with the photorealistic background, and the vector art ui, was just a little bit offputting. I'd try to stick with a style.

Other than that, I had a lot of fun playing it! Music is really nice, and the gameplay is definitely there!

If you continue with this, I'd be nice to have a star system like Angry Birds, so that I can tell how good my score is. Neat idea though!
