Nice work. It takes a few goes to get the hang of it but when you do it's a fun challenge. I did have trouble if I ever needed to pull a third line out of the same color's power, it was very picky about where I could click to start the line. If I wasn't in the right spot it wouldn't draw.

I feel like the buttons for turning the generators on and off are too small.  I would love to be able to use the keyboard to do that but I know that's asking a bit much. I enjoy the precision movement while drawing a path, less so when clicking a button. Great job, I could definitely play more levels of this.

I like the interpretation of the theme! It took me a while to learn how the game works - didn't notice the "lives" in the top corner, so wasn't sure which things made me lose and which didn't until I re-read the instructions and played level 4 several times. It might have been easier if the instructions just said "keep GW at 0 or at least close to it".


The mechanic's pretty interesting when you understand it, a kind of puzzle-management-survival-arcade game. Had to learn how to make my drawings efficient so the lines wouldn't block future paths. It was a nice challenge, not too easy to win, but not impossible either!
