Really cool idea! Very original and unique, I enjoyed it.
I love the cute pixel art Reece made for this, and the simple and challenging gameplay is unlike anything I've ever seen before. We have to strategize in real time in order to get the string to line up with the baddies while avoiding certain death, and it's super clever in general.
Some leves can get REALLY hard, but man, they're worthwhile. What a lovely concept. Some levels are more like puzzles, while others are more like action sequences, and they're sweet.
I like to imagine that the blue one is PolyMars and the red one is Reece, or the other way around, and that the game is a metaphor for them trying to finish this project in Pico 8 in time for the jam, lol.
