What a fantastic entry! Such a polished game in just a week - I loved the aesthetic, the music and the general feel of the game and the puzzles themselves were interesting.

The only problem I had was level 7 didn't seem to make sense at all - I worked out what was happening with the mechanics but it seems to feel like it's not possible in the number of turns provided.

Still, such a fantastic title - I don't think it matches the theme much but it's a beautiful little game regardless, so you should all be proud! :)

I loved the first levels, but it seems that around level 7, there is a level of complexity introduced that is not intuitive to understand. I don't know why the colours swap when they do, and can't work out the mechanics. The amount of polish in all of the other aspects of the design is really impressive, but the lack of intuitive mechanics means some sort of tutorial design would help a lot to make the game more enjoyable. Even just more information on the itch page might help. Great sound and visuals.

Thanks a lot for feedback! 

We already working on a small patch that will make the gameplay more intuitive and easier to understand :)

As others mentioned, a bit more information would've been nice, but I'm sure it's in the works, and other than that it's a very solid puzzle game.

Thanks a lot for feedback :3

I'm working on a port for phones and I rebuilding these less readable mechanics. I would be grateful if you could list me mechanics that were unclear to you!

This game is really polished and well done. though I don't see how it matches with the theme its really good

Theme usage was a bit confusing but a pleasant game with very interesting puzzle mechanics.

Submitted

Really great game like the concept a lot and would love to see more levels!

Great game! I'm a bit confused at first on how the blocks are swapped based on the symbol sequence at the bottom of the game and it's quite unclear at first that I need to finish the puzzle before it reaches "END". A prompt or small explanation would be a plus!

Once in a while I felt a bit confused about what to do, but through trial and error I figured it. It's a really nice title, and I enjoyed it.

I like it! Lots of potential for different levels too, took me a second to get my head around the blocks changing colour ^

Developer

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Some of the levels can be challenging, especially if you have to monitor multiple colors at once. However, I do hope that you managed to solve all the levels :3

Submitted

of course!

Another fellow color puzzle :) Your game is really nice and clever, I think it would do great as a mobile game I don't know if you were planning on doing that. I have a question, what does it mean when all the color squares become black?

Developer

Hi, thanks for your opinion :)

Squares become black when you reach the end of the round (marked "END" at the bottom) - at that point, you have to either restart or reverse your turns in order to actually finish the level and move on to the next one.

Submitted

oh because you have a limited amount of moves is that right

Developer

Yes, however, you can pause the current turn by moving one of the cubes to the pause square.

I'm surprised by how challenging this game was. I got the full immersion experience I didn't even know matching games had hahaha, and you did it for all levels, that's amazing.

Thanks for the feedback :3

Our game/level designer has put a lot of work to make every level as enjoyable as possible.

We are actually planning on releasing a more sophisticated version for mobile platforms in the near future.
