Cute game! I love that kind of puzzle games. I'm amazed at the music too, you managed to make one for each level and that sure fells more polished. Reminded me some shareware games on Amiga too ;)

Thanks! The triangle-wave music is as much an homage to old DOS and Amiga games as it was a limitation of my own skill. Lemmings is a childhood favorite of mine, so that's probably a subconscious inspiration.

Very interesting game! I'd be keen on playing some more levels. The reset seemed to cause me a couple different issues. I was playing on level 4 and reset, which sent me back to level 1 but also kept the level 4 music playing alongside the level 1 music. Also, the reset on level 2 did in fact reset only level 2, but it also disabled the music (not the sfx). Great job overall!

Thanks for the comments, and for catching those bugs! I made this with the most basic resources and a custom engine, so I'm surprised it isn't more buggy, really. I'm using WebAudio to programmatically generate music and sounds, and as I understand it, that's still an "experimental" technology; I need to toy around with it some more to come up with a better, stable implementation.

As much as I want to fix bugs, I've decided to leave this particular version of the game alone: untampered after the end of the jam's time limit. I am planning to make a more full-featured game out of this, with more levels, mechanics, and music, sometime in the near future.

No problem. I'm looking forward to the full game!

Liked it very much. I was hooked, waiting for more levels!

Really cool mechanic!  Would love to play a few more levels with increasingly complex puzzles.  Nice work!

Cool game! I think it might interesting to flesh out the design maybe by starting with fewer colors in a smaller area but do what you do!

Well done! Great concept and gameplay!
