Amazing game!!

The game represented very well the Zodiac theme of the jam.
The graphics are very nice, and the music is immersive with the enviroment. The SFX fit very well too.
I liked a lot the gameplay's idea. Sometimes I could go in different ways on the same level to complete it.

I really liked the idea of showing the constellation name when the tutorial level was complete. I think it would be cool to show it in other levels too. This could be used as a feedback that the level ended.

I think that the selected volume on options could be more highlighted too.

Congratulations for the game!! It's very cool!!

Well done.  The game looks great and plays great, and the idea is interesting.  I really like the addition of the asteroids.

I do think there needs to be some indication when a puzzle is complete.  The first few levels I solved, and thought there was something left to do because I could still play and there was no ding or sign that the level was complete except the fade out - which I misinterpreted as failure.

That's really all I can think to criticize, and it's a bit nitpicky.

I also wanted to do something with constellations but I couldn't make it work mechanically and eventually scrapped that idea.  I'm glad to see someone figured it out.

Great job.

thanks for tour kind Review Jovalent! A sign after you beat a level was scheduled but i couldnt make It :( Also, after you beat the level, i designed the system to show the constellation name that you formed, enhancing the player feedback. But i couldnt make the name of all stars.

Thanks again for playing!!!

Nice job, overall. The asteroids look great, in particular. 

That long, rotating asteroid belt kept me waiting though, sitting on one of the stars until it passed by, for what felt like an awful long time. 

Also, the pause once you clear a stage is a little odd. Maybe some visual or audio feedback to let you know that you've cleared the stage while you wait for the fade-out would be a nice addition?

In general though, a solid constellation-themed puzzler!

Thanks Pinebox! Great review! The rotating asteroid will be reviewed. After every stage, it would be appear the constelation name that you formed, after traveling to all stars. But i could manage time to write all of them, thats what happens, also with the SFX! Thanks again for the review and feedback <3

i think your game is broken. the drawn lines kept disappearing and the one time i did manage to close a shape the next level went black. am i missing something in the game play?

Developer

Hi Shoze! In which level the draw lines are disapearing? Probably you found a bug. Will try tô fix It asap! Anyway, thanks for playing!!!

level 1. didnt manage to pass that one due to bugs or me severely misunderstanding  the game.

nvm. i tried again and this time it worked. really cool concept and mechanics, although i wish there was some indications when u finish a level.

good luck!

Developer

oh, awesome! I was going to put a sound FX when all star have been traveled and the pointer of the star should get invisible, but i didnt find the bug and couldnt  create the sfx at time. 

Again, thanks for playing It!!!
