This is interesting and rather relaxing.

Doesn't work on latest FF on Mac... Does work on Safari...

Cool game. Wish it were longer, I liked it. Just one thing: Instead of having to start over the level whenever you touch them together, it just shouldn't let them pass through.

I'm with Emily - great game, very soothing music, done too soon. I didn't mind having to start over. It was a quick game after all. And not too terribly complicated. Yeah, wish there were more levels!!

Just in case you are wondering: There are 25 levels in this game.

Most of the early levels were too easy, and then the last ones too finicky. Not my cup of tea.

Excellent. Loved it.

Bah. More Unity. Cannot be made to play. Please let us know in the description that a game is Unity-based so we can know not to bother trying it.

This is now a WebGL version of the Unity player, so it should work on any operating system.

Thanks for the response, Bart, but I can find no evidence whatsoever of any Unity player that works under any version of Linux, at least not on their own website. I've tried Pipelight (patched Wine to run Windows plugins like Unity and Silverlight under Linux) and it only works when it feels like working, which is never.

I've given up waiting for Unity to release any sort of player that works under Linux, so now I'm waiting for game developers to give up on Unity instead.

This is so relaxing. Took me 30 minutes to complete. I really like the concept, design and music, it is also possible and not finger bitingly hard! A very good game!

Anonymous here again... I got curious and plugged in the URL for this game into Chrome running on Linux. Then imagine, to my surprise, the Unity logo appeared in a box labeled "Unity WebGL" and the loading bar progressed to 100%!

Then... it froze my entire system to the point where I had to power off to restart it. Sigh. I was actually hopeful for a few seconds there. Guess this is still an "emerging technology". I don't dare attempt it again.

Oh, well. At least they seem to be trying.

Really loved this game!!! Wouldn't want to play it with a mouse though. With a trackball it's much easier to handle.

FF on Windows 10 without any problem... loved this game ! The music is soothing and it's just difficult enough to get enjoyable, but not unfeasible.
