(x/post) A tile-based logic puzzle game of a type I swear I've played before (it's like a circuit or path-based electrical type game).  Neat puzzles that never got out of hand, I think its particular strength is the overall aesthetic.  Outside a couple things it just feels like a cohesive front.  Like Run Forrest Run I do wish it was a little nicer on redoing puzzles and saving solutions which would've been nice.  But all in all I think this is a strong entry!

Wow. Time Hanks is such a great puzzle game. I enjoyed the story and stayed for the graphics and gameplay. The art style simply puts every other submission to shame. The UI works very well and makes the game a pleasure to play. An incredibly polished and creative entry, this is the real deal.

This is a really good puzzle game; I liked that the primary restrictions are on space (and time if you try to beat par); this lets the player really explore the mechanics of the pieces as much as they want to. The music is catchy and works well together with the graphics. 

I'm sure others out there will beat this, but here's the ones where I bested par.

Count on It/M&M: 35

Choking Destiny/TMWORS: 40

Love - A Choice/V: 65

Break Apart Jeremy/S: 84

Lean Copper Partner/CA: 80

I had the moderately farfetched wish of implementing a Zachtronics style leaderboard which would show average performance, and I wish I remembered to implement either a screenshot-taker of solutions or ability to share layouts so that it would be easier to show your ability to easily best my times. Thanks for playing and proving my hypothesis that I'm not very good at puzzle games (even when I design them :V)

Awesome! I liked the puzzle idea. And I'm a big fan of open ended puzzle games where you're looking for A solution it doesn't have to be the "best" solution. Then you can compare what you got with the average or others or whatever. It would be neat to see other players' scores, but I understand that's tough on a game jam time frame, ha. The graphics were amazing. Loved the music as well. Awesome job.

Thanks so much! I'm in total agreement about sharing or having access to other people's solutions or at least scores, but that idea fell into the abyss and I forgot about it. Presuming I would have figured out how to implement it, that would have been quite sweet.
