i suggest adding mouse input, ps+ has that

I made an oversight designing level F1, please don't pick left-facing crowbar.

rot13 hints:

the latter. you are expected to know or look up the astronomical symbols.

Snakebird regularly goes on sale for the same price or lower than this one, and is better in most ways. I feel bad for anyone who picked up this game not knowing about the better option available.

What are the distinctions? From what is shown in the screenshots and dev posts, it looks like a direct clone of Snakebird but with fewer gameplay features (no multi-snake levels or pushable blocks) and worse level design.

Well that's pretty readable even with the encryption lol, maybe use K and X. I came up with the same solution so it might be unique, very interesting that such a thing has a unique solution. What did your code do, find the positions or push things into place or something else?

If you want to give hints use rot13.com so people can't accidentally read them.

jumping over a box pushes it by 1, seems like a bug. sofa problem is either impossible or uses an untutorialized interaction. edit: it is the latter. the ... is not needed.

in case you forget how they work and need to revisit some easy intro levels, or want to skip to something new, new mechanics are introduced at levels:

1: pink, 8: blue, 14: green, 24: gray, 30: orange

often puzzlescript games require you to reload the page once before they become responsive on itch, idk why. i messaged pluf to increase the embed window size.

Hints for each level if you are stuck (rot13):

I liked the encore levels more than the rest of the game since they were deductive rather than trial and error/fiddling. 0:51 is by far the hardest level.

"if only...skip..." level has a trivial solution with just walk right

bug: if something is above you, action key destroys it. I suggest increasing the embed window size significantly.

was the last level supposed to spell something but you gave up?

possible bug [removed details since they had spoilers]

amazing number of good levels for how long you had.

Awesome game, problem solving is surprisingly similar to the real thing. I recorded level 12 in 15 moves because the solution was cool

v0.02 feels unnatural, I would allow moving after shooting again, maybe after a short delay like 0.2 seconds. my comment about level 8 was before I played any later levels, and after experiencing the rest of the game, I would say timing dependent puzzles are a good addition, as long as they are not too precise.

no moving after shooting is not sufficient to prevent timing puzzles, as you can still move and shoot while blocks are falling. level 18 has 3 solutions currently, 2 of which involve speedy action as the block falls. level 8 can be fixed with a wall above the down-arrow. not sure what solutions were fixed in 17 and 14, but 17 looks uglier now.

more bugs: you can still push a falling block (imo falling blocks should not be pushable). you can shoot the side or bottom of a falling yellow block (it should vanish as soon as you shoot, and therefore not be shootable). I think you should not be able to shoot while pushing, that seems to cause several problems. 

the jan 13 update did not fix the above cheese and bugs. in case you couldn't understand, it is rot13.
I don't understand the changes to lv2 or lv16. lv5 is better, lv18 is worse (more obvious), lv19 is worse (less elegant), lv20 is better (much harder)

level 17 has 2 instances of cheese:

levels 18+ seem much easier than 14 15 and 17

level 8 has cheese:

awesome game, the movement feels great after working with it for a while (though the obstacles you designed are too finnicky). castle bubble inspired? I couldnt get 5 of the red balls, 3 of them seem doable while the other 2 are way too long (top left room could use a checkpoint up top). I tried slowing it down but that didn't help due to messing with muscle memory, I did notice you can rotate more rapidly when slowed down though, might want to fix that.

awesome level design. the "you beat all levels" thing unlocks a level early

I would suggest expanding the active part of the game window, which seems to use only 640x460 of the 800x600 window. I just got to 22 and can't really see it without entering full screen, and many prior levels have also felt cramped.
