Made it to level 10. That one has me stumped.

Rava said...

Whoa! Crazy! Now stuck at "twins" level! But I'll get it sooner or later!

Nice idea, simple but quite hard for the last couple of levels. Quite satisfying to finish.

As an exercise in logic, I enjoyed it. As an exercise in memorising locations of hidden pieces, not so much.

Would definitely be worth spending the extra time improving the display and adding things like move counter, targets, etc.

Joel said...

Woo Hoo! Finished it- yeah the levels definitely get tricky as you keep going. All in all, though, that was a really fun game!

Cyn said...

neat little game. simple controls, sucks you in with "hey, this is fun & pretty easy," but then slowly twists your brain in knots.

Cyn said...

@dyork: no. i would NOT like to see a moves counter. don't need to see how lame i am compared to other casual gamers! haha

How do you beat the "flash' level?

Anonymous said...

Dang. Now I'm stuck on the level afterthat one...

tam said...

instead of the counter, I wish there was a maximum number of attempts...
I'm too slow for the Flash level but too stubborn to quit... Help!

-k said...

Flash isn't about speed, it's about making sure you move on every other turn (when the blue spots are not active) using the ability to "scroll" your moving piece is the key to levels with the blue and pink buttons.

Stuck on the "deception" level. I can get past the fist circle but not the second one.

NotMarian said...

Groovy! My kind of game.

tam said...

@ -k

OMG
you opened a totally new world to me!
I cannot tell you how grateful I am, thank you :)

(stay tuned for my next help request, please!)

Al-E-Cat said...

does twins have a solution? i can get to the last position but an arrow is in the way and it doesn't seem possible to get it in another position

Niels Klassen said...

I tried and tried and tried, and then I gave up at lure. I know, just a little more right? But I'm done. I liked the 14 locks very much, and the music is real chill. Any sequel?

Phil said...

Took me the whole day to solve it. I would take a break from it, and then come back and the solution would "materialize" After a particularly difficult level, the next couple of levels were trivial! The final level I understood the solution before being able to implement it, it was a bit like the level before, having to go back for an intermediate solution.

Thanks for the game!

Note that you access a menu with the spacebar. There you can for example restart the game if you want.
