Well put together great little game. Love the music and SFX.

Nice little game, I kinda cheated because I abused the placing of blocks and jumped my way trough some of the platforming, but I have a lot of fun timing it :P

The combination of the graphics and the gameboy color palette works great, and the music is really nice.

Very clever and simple puzzle game. Love the gameboy styled palette.
Fell at the top left and took a while to get back to where I was. Maybe splitting into shorter levels could make it easier.
Still really good entry!

A rather fun mouse-only game; the titular "blind bird" keeps walking, bouncing off walls and reversing direction, and you can move one magic block from place to place to help the bird climb obstacles or change direction in the right place. The first few moves give you all the time you want to place the block, but subsequent ones require quite accurate timing, as the bird (an eared dove, apparently) walks off your magic block onto a small safe place and you have to quickly move the block so they can walk onto it again and continue the journey. Because the resolution is so small, the screen camera moves quite a lot, and so I found myself putting the block one space higher or lower than it should be... but that's my fault, not the game's fault! Tiny, tiny graphical complaint: the bird's eye isn't green, it's transparent, which means that if it walks in front of some of the tutorial writing, you can see the writing through the bird's eye. Which looks a bit weird. But that's seriously the only thing I have to complain about; this is a tiny nugget of joy, this game. I like the four-colour green palette and everything. This is good stuff.

A nice take on lemmings :-)

I really liked the color palette: minimal, but effective.

The only improvement I can suggest it to stabilize the camera adding some attraction on the spots where to place the blocks, since it's quite difficult to play on a laptop with no mouse :-p

I enjoyed it.

I think you should had some checkpoints, because it's frustrating to fall all the way down to the beginning and having to start over again.

Developer

We're glad you enjoyed it \(^▽^)/ 

Having checkpoints it's a good idea and we'll try to put them in the game during the weekend.
