Fun Game! Liked the simple art style! The only thing I wish it had more of was some audio. Maybe a song to listen to while playing the game or even like the sound of the shovel hitting a rock or some dirt. Overall really interesting game!

Developer

Thanks for playing! ๐Ÿ™‚

The postjam version is on his way, with SFX and BGM thanks to a talented friend!

Fun little game! And impressive how many levels you made. It was a little hard to tell the difference between the different skeletons as everything progressed, still managed to get through it though. Good job!

Thank you for playing! ๐Ÿ™‚ Will do a slightly change in colors for the post jam version!

Nice game! Some simple downloaded audio would add a lot to the game.

I didn't notice there was a lack of sound until ~level 10 though :D

Developer(+1)

Thanks a lot for playing!

So the lack of audio is not this critical ๐Ÿ˜‚ but fear no more, it's coming (after jam)

A post jam version is in progress, with many of the features missing here:

  • sounds, thanks to DevEd
  • faster response of the shovel to the end of the field
  • wait time before level switching
  • moves counter

Gonna upload it after the jam is over, so keep your eyes open!

Awesome puzzle concept and use of theme. Love these fantasy console games too. Great work!

Developer

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

Cute and simple, I love the narrative you wrapped around this puzzle game

Developer

oh thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

Really unique and has a lot of potential for expanding on the concept! Would be neat if there were a move counter where you could try to optimize how many moves it took you to align the bones.

Developer(+1)

oh thanks! I'm going to make a post jam release with some improvements (counter, music I hope) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Submitted

It would be nice if there were some sound effects.

Developer

Of course but I'm really bad at sounds ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thanks!

Really nice! My only complain is that I wish the shovel would finish it's animation when it reaches the edge of the ground/island.

Developer

Yeah there is room for improvement :-)

Thank you for playing!
