This was fun, but it took a while to get difficult, but that's very subjective.. I must have a small screen, because it took me like four or five levels before I realised there was a HUD at the bottom if I scrolled down. :P  The level intro and outro writing was excellent!

Funny concept, tea with flowers is really tasteful :D From level to level is getting harder, horrible hard :> Music is quite nice too ;)

The writing was quite funny, but the gameplay was downright hilarious!  And the music seemed a perfectly fitting tune to be hearing whilst one catches things in a teacup amidst a shower of objects.  Bravo sir, Bravo!

This is a stand-out game for me! Love the mechanics, the writing, and the options and save game function makes this one of my favourites of #pdjam.

omg, just discovered there's a Free Play mode. :D

Nice graphics, nice idea, nice game! I included it in part 4 of my Public Domain Jam compilation video series :) http://youtu.be/XyekZqqe3lQ

I really liked this! Humorous idea, executed perfectly, and I like it a lot! 

Really funny idea and good writing.
