I like how the difficulty ramps by introducing new emojis on other edges of the screen - I didn't see that coming! but the game was very buggy, and I was unable to play it much: sometimes, after opening an envelope, I was just unable to drag emojis around anymore. I also definitely lost one game after throwing a lightbulb to the middle of the lightbulb side of the screen, although it's possible the timing was coincidental, and I had actually lost for failing to distribute other emojis (due to the dragging issues).

I totally understand that it can be hard to work out all issues in such a short period of time, though. (I've published my share of bugs >_> haha)

Yeah thanks for playing! I am aware of the bugs when envelopes start to mount up but couldn't figure them out before the jam finished. If I get round to it I will try to fix them up!

Nice concept! I enjoyed it but have two issues:

- Presentation can be improved: the brown background is not very appealing!

- The idea is fun but the hard level is almost unplayable: I can't drag the emoji out of an envelope if there's another one nearby. Trying to free the space, I often end up destroying unopened letters instead. The situation quickly gets messy.


Keep up with the good work!

Thanks! Yeah when envelopes start to gather the game can get v buggy, sorry about that just didn't have time to finish all the bug fixing. I agree about the background actually! It was meant to look like a wooden table but I don't think I really captured that haha! Do you have any ideas for other backgrounds? I would love to hear them and maybe go in and change it.
