  • Excellent entry. A strategic step-time puzzle, with a very broad range of scanning speed adjustment. Music is great. Simple graphics suit it (and don't know how you did it, but it feels 3D to me in a way, a bit like those magic eye pictures). Good level of difficulty. Really enjoyed this. A few issues. The menu sometimes doesn't work. It would be good if left-click worked too for starting the game and playing. I really liked the music, but it would be good to give the option to turn it off. The direction that your craft is pointing is not as clear as it might be. When you win, if you can't read "YOU WIN" you might find it a bit confusing. Maybe a sound effect / change of music / to boost understanding would be good. Icons/symbols for the menu screen would be great, for those who can't/or struggle to read English.
  • This adhered to the one button with no loss or detrimental outcome when stepping away rule, so good job there! I really liked the simple yet puzzling game mechanics, and those moments where you align yourself to fire off to a new screen to explore. However, while the music was aiming to be retro, it was overly grating and hard to listen to throughout the playthrough.
  • This really embodies the full spirit of the jam!

Even though this got #4 in People's Choice I'm very happy the Judges agreed it should be #1 :)

Nice, I like this. Can't beat a good dungeon crawler. It could do with some better indicators to highlight directions; I couldn't quite make out the shapes, and sometimes skipping a direction when next to corners/walls is cool, but upsets the flow. Great concept, very retro-inspired!

Very well thought world design! The music is a little annoying here and there,  but the game concept is really interesting. Hope to see more such games from you :D

People may find it hard to download the Windows version as a .exe file. Also, seems to crash on my Windows 10 machine once playing. Looks interesting though.

Thanks for reporting! I fixed the glitch so it seems to work fine now.
