Nice game, I liked the theme and the graphics although the game toggled itself in fullscreen mode when I launched it. This made all the art a little bit blurry, i would have preferred to play it in a window mode. The puzzles were interesting (i got till the 7th) but sometimes the difficulty came more from the number of penguins and the combinatorial complexity than something i had to understand about the game. Good job overall :)

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, someone else also suggested not forcing full screen. I'll definitely consider that next time. By default the quality is set to 75% (for best performance on most machines), so maybe try cranking it up to 100% in the settings for better resolution. Thanks again for your feedback :-)

I like the idea, the cuteness of the penguins, and the puzzle design (a lot of paths that seem like they'll work but don't :P)

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it.  I did spend a lot of time trying to make sure the solutions were not too obvious so that hopefully when you do find the solution is feels satisfying. It's difficult though trying to strike the right balance so the puzzles are challenging but not frustrating. Thanks again for your feedback :-)

These are some cute penguins.  I wish the center button when you finish a level took you to the next level.  I think this is an interesting twist on the ice sliding puzzle.  Good job.

Developer

Thanks TaftPunk :-) Yeah, there was originally only one OK button that took you to the next level, but after play testing I realized players may want to review their solution, before moving on. So I added a PREV and NEXT buttons on the success popup as well. Clicking the button with the right arrow next to the center button does take you to the next level.  Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for playing :-)  I haven't had that issue with the options menu, but thanks for letting me know. I'll try to replicate.

I love the uniqueness of the slide-puzzle play. everything felt smooth. I agree with previous comments about the UI, very straight forward. Cute theme and clever puzzle aspect! Great job!

Thanks for playing and I appreciate your feedback.

Very nice game, I really enjoyed solving the puzzles. I like the clean graphics and easy-to-understand UI. I'm not a fan of forcing full screen though.

Developer

Thanks! I appreciate your feedback. Any specific reason you're not a fan of forced full screen?

Not necessarily my own personal opinion. But over the years I've noticed many people tend to play in windowed mode. It's also quite a nuisance for streamers.

Developer

Okay, thanks. Good to know. I'll keep that in mind.

Excellent game! Congratulations on your puzzler. I made it through level 5. Nice work! I did not see the credits menu option.

Developer

Thanks for playing! Credits are on the Itch game page .

I can see you have spent a lot of time creating these puzzles. The graphics is smooth, the musics are peaceful, the UI is also easy to understand. Overall a pretty nice 3d game!

Developer

Thanks. Appreciate the feedback. Yeah, in the last puzzle game I made for a jam, Grim Tactics, I spent too much time on the graphics and not enough on puzzle design, so this time I made sure to focus on the puzzles first. (Btw, seems like we both ended up with ice blocks in our games ;-)
