How does your submission match the theme?
Moving both moves your character as well as shoots a deadly laser. Other elements in the game serve a dual or oxymoronic nature to them. Lava is both a hazard and a tool for luring the civilians where you want them. Islands are both a goal, but are also the only solid blocks that your laser can pass through. Thematically, civilians are terrified of the cyclops, but they must be saved.

That was a really fun game, and had some challenging puzzles with it. The only real issue I have with it is that some puzzles tend to rely on the villagers odd movement pattern , which makes thinking ahead a little bit difficult. However once you get the hang of it, it's a great game!

Realllly clever idea.

Good game with solid puzzles. The difficulty felt random, but there was only 48 hours to make the game so I forgive a bit of random difficulty. The logic of the people is very obvious once you play a couple levels. Well executed!
