good, fun concept, love the game

Wow, our take on the theme was very similar :) (though I made mine partially realtime and undoing is a part of the puzzle in later lvls).  

I love the lava blocks idea and your game is just way more polished and offers more levels. Congratz on the win.

Thank you so much! Your game looks so cool as well! I think we just got kind of lucky since so many good games had similar ideas. The level of excellence during this jam was insane!

We will develop the game into a full title. So hopefully we can explore some more cool ideas with the mechanic :)

Ah, thank you! It's great to hear that the difficulty progression was noticeable even with the little time we could put into it.
Glad you enjoyed the game :)

Wow, I fully expect to see this one in the GMTK video, fantastic idea, polished, well designed level, puns, it has everything. And just when I thought it was getting a little too easy, the lava blocks appear! Great job!

really just a fun puzzler with a great concept! this might just win!

Developer

Thanks for the nice feedback, Alpha! We really appreciate it :)

no prob

Great work! I'm very impressed by the quantity and quality of the levels. Each level felt like a natural progression from the last and each of them was either teaching something new or re-inforcing somthing taught previously. The last level was my favourite as it incorporated almost all of the mechanics (minus the extra key pickups), it really felt like a final test!

Developer

Thanks so much for taking the time to play! Good to hear that the level progression kinda works out even with the little time we had during the gamejam. And thanks again for the feedback :)

Thanks a lot :D

Glad you like our little twist on the theme!

Submitted(+1)

Immediately on starting the game, I fell in love with the music. Really well executed concept, the paste preview was an especially nice touch.

Once I got to the lava, I got pretty confused, since when I tried to move down nothing seemed to happen aside from a sound playing. I eventually realized that the lava was spreading into the tile I was trying to move into, killing me. Something to make that a little more clear could be a nice extra touch.

Definitely feels like something that could be expanded into an even larger game (and this one is already impressively large!)

Developer

Thanks a lot for playing and your feedback! 
Great point with the lava introduction. We'll keep that in mind when we get back to it. :)

Also glad you liked the music. Louis did a tremendous job on that. 

 Cheers, Laura

This was great! Surprising number of levels (and pretty good ones at that!) for a 48hr jam. Took me a long time to discover you can remove blocks, and boy did that ramp up the potential complexity. Visuals and audio were really pleasant. Fantastic work!

Developer(+1)

Haha yeah the void stepping makes everything so much better :D
It was actually a bug until we decided to make it into a feature!

Thanks for playing!
