Thanks for trying it out, and for trying out all the other entries too! I hadn't thought of the Rorschach test comparison, but it's totally true!

Nice! I really liked the music. And the (I assume) procedurally generated names were a nice touch to go along with the procedurally generated islands. Well done!

Neat! The rotation tool is really cool! I don't think I've seen that before in a map generator

Neat!

Neat! Looks like it would be neat to knit as fair isle too, as well as weaving.

Very cute! Music fits great, and there's good game feel with the bubbles dropping down a little when you fall on them.

Heck yeah! This is great! 

For some reason, it took me a while to realize I could rotate the pieces, even though I saw that you could rotate them in a screenshot you'd posted earlier XD

I loved the little "infinite loop" note :)

I liked the unlocking difficulties.

If you feel like it, I think it would be handy to have a level reset button that either resets the same level or gives you a new one. Just something to do if you know you're gonna fail other than needing to place the remaining tiles.

Nice! I love games with simple controls. Movement felt good.

I really like the visual design & audio!

i did die in the desert 

i expected to be able to interact with more stuff, even if it ultimately didn't do anything.

i really like the minimalist feel: not sure if that was intentional or a result of the jam timeframe or both, but it was cool

i found a secret, i think ;)

I really liked the bumpers! 

It took me a while to realize that I could jump. Usually I read the instructions, but I totally failed to. So that's on me. But regardless, I prefer to jump using the up key over X. But that's just personal preference.

The sound effects messed with my ears, but I think that's a me problem. I've had a lot of games do that with super repetitious sounds.

I really liked all the different gates, power ups, and the bumpers. Well done!

Great polish & game feel! I loved the sound effects, music, and animated star field.

For some reason I kept forgetting I could move forward & back, even though the tutorial taught me that I could. That made avoiding enemies difficult, for sure :D

I'm not a big arcade game player, but I enjoyed it anyway!

"rules of thumb" made me laugh :D

i'm not usually a fan of tower defense games, but this one was pretty fun. 

i like when people make mobile-focused games for jams, and i think the thumb control is both really cool, and goes well with the theme.

yeah, i am on a high dpi display. i'm happy to help test if you'd like. you can message me on the WGJ discord; i'm mapsandapps there as well.

interesting take on the theme.


i liked that you had the controls listed in the game and below the game, but the text below the game didn't mention that you use arrows & WASD to move, and you have to jump to see the text at the beginning that tells you what controls you can use to move. so maybe move that text down a bit, haha. at least they're standard controls, so it's pretty predictable. anyway, not a big deal since so many jam games don't even list the controls at all, haha.

i liked the "trap".

super neat game! i played through all the levels.

cool twist on the theme!

some things i'd like to see if you continue to work on it:


  • i'd like the game to be larger (instead of having a big black border around it) and fullscreenable
  • a hotkey to release the current thumbnail (without having to use it) would be handy
  • a level selector and star system where you would get three stars if you solved the level using the fewest thumbnails possible
  • the audio seemed quite loud to me. i changed my system volume so it was no big deal, but having audio settings would be really nice if it were a longer game, where i might be dipping in and out or listening to something else while playing.
  • definitely more levels! i really enjoyed playing the game :)

ooh, yeah, i like the rhythm idea!

very cool game! i played it for an hour or two and even managed to win :)

i like the mouseover highlighting of red & green. the lock mechanic is really neat too. and the core minesweeper-ish mechanic is super engaging.

i didn't really mind having to figure out how the game works, but other people might feel differently.

i did find a couple bugs (or what appeared to be bugs), but they didn't really hurt my enjoyment of the game:

there's a bug (i assume) in that you can use the telescope multiple times when you get it.

there's a square you can hit that makes the locks go away? but it looks like a regular square both before and after you click it?

so yeah, just some stuff to look into if you feel like it. but i think it's super fun as-is. thanks for making it! :D

it made me smile :)

Whoops! I meant to mention that, but I got so used to the behavior that I forgot. Added. Thank you!

Nice! I got 900. I liked the arcadey music. I really expected the car to move left-center-right-center-left instead of left-center-right-left-center-right. But I was able to get used to it pretty quickly. Neat concept!

Pretty funny! I had to look in the about to figure out what button to mash. It would have been nice to have that info either in the itch description or in an intro screen. But yeah, I liked the concept and the art & effects!

Really cool graphics & particle effects. I liked the music too!

Happy to hear it! Thanks!

It's fun! I love the visual design

Really neat game! Great job with the level design, which I always find to be the most challenging part. Well done!

I found it a little confusing that "S" jumps when inverted, but "W" doesn't jump when not inverted. I totally like the concept, though. I also really like the music.

The art style is super cute! The combination of keys triggered some things to move around on my screen, so I'll second the idea of changing the fire key.

Nice! It was really fun, and I love the colors & graphics! I wasn't sure if I knew what was going on half the time, but it was still fun to play.

Thanks! Those are both things I wanted to add, but I wanted to get this version out first. Hopefully I'll have more time before the deadline to make some improvements!

Neat puzzle game! I enjoyed it.

Really neat art style, music, sounds, and written text! Kind of scary as the monsters get closer!

I don't have Windows to try it out, but I just wanted to say that the art is adorable!   💚

Nice! I've played a game pretty similar to this one, but this is a nice variant. More importantly, the execution is super cool! I love the graphics, animations, sounds, and music. Well done!

Oh yeah, I should have mentioned that in my review. Left & right arrow keys work for me, but up doesn't seem to do anything.

Cool concept. I really wish there were a reset button. In the last level, I managed to get into an almost-unwinnable state, and I had to do a lot of finagling to get out. I did manage it, though :)

Crazy mechanic! I really would have liked to have been able to customize the controls (but this is definitely not something I expect from a jam game) because I kept hitting either AS&D or QW&E instead of AW&D. I really enjoyed it, though. Graphics are super cute, too!

Neat concept! I didn't get very far because I'm not very good at technical platformers. It must have been difficult to create levels that were challenging but doable for both characters. You've done a great job here.

I also liked the name. I've heard of the Kiki/Bouba effect, and I think this is a neat use of the concept.

Thanks! I was inspired by https://www.reddit.com/r/blender/comments/ezrlen/animated_truchet_tiles/

At some point I want to add a drag & drop editor to this playground and maybe make a game or two using the tiles.
