Wow man, great game. I got to level 9 and stopped. It would've helped if there was something to see the spots a block would change... Maybe there was and I just forgot xD

Anyway, this is a game I've never seen before. It was new, and great. Good job. 5/5, on everything.

Thanks :D

Is level 9 the one with the one block you couldn't click? That's the only level like that, it's supposed to trip you up, but the level in itself is still pretty easy to do.

The game was very nice but some of the controls bothered me a lot.
It would be wonderful if you could get the pop up message in the tutorial to go away by clicking instead of just the space bar. Its always good to try to stick to one input device in games like this.

That is the only thing bad I can think of.

Oh, and, I am the worst at this game. It took me like 20 minutes to beat the tutorial. -.-

Yeah, it takes a little bit of time to get used to the game. Most of the people I showed it to had difficulty beating most of the levels I thought were easy. ;)

The controls were supposed to be as open as possible, and almost all of the game could be played with just the mouse. The pop up during the tutorial was something I just threw in like ten minutes before I released it, because beta testers were telling me that the game stopped working, though they really just used all of their moves.

You're right. This game is brilliant. There is one negative thing to say though: not long enough. Sorry.
I do like the level... 8 I think it is? The one which is impossible to solve in 5 moves, and the caption is "When you work this one out, please don't kill me". Very Karoshi.

Actually, I disagree. The controls were intuitive enough for me. The space bar I had no trouble with; my only (slight) issue was with the right mouse button. In general, I think the mouse buttons should be used only for things which depend on the mouse's position (such as for clicking on stuff) and the keyboard for everything else. Perhaps it could be Backspace to invert the screen instead?

PS This isn't urgent; the game is quite playable once you get used to the controls.

Thanks alot :)
There was actually a third set of advanced levels planned, but I ran out of ideas for new levels, and decided that if people wanted really difficult stuff, they could just use the level editor.

I think the controls are fine, and I probably won't dig up the source file just to make small edits like that. But if I do make an update in the future, I'll be sure to add this. :)

Nice game and not too hard for me. It was nice that you came up with new ideas of blocks for the intermediate levels.

Thanks, it's good to know that the difficulty was good. Some people were complaining that it was too hard.

Great game, Necro. Nicely programed and very challenging. The graphics were wonderful. 8.5/10

Also, what forums have you been on? I believe I recognize your Signature programs from another forum...and it was not a Game creation forum...

Neat game.

Hard enough to get you thinking... not so hard you don't want to play.

Intermediate Level 19 was the only one that slowed me down.

Just couldn't see what was right in front of me :)


One comment: Intermediate seemed easier in general then the basic puzzles... but that could also be because of how I think. I seem to look for the unobvious first lol

I dunno, some people think the basic puzzles are the hardest, but maybe thats just because you're not used to the gameplay at that time.
