I downloaded the game and in lv 3 if you walk into the vase from the outside, the game crashes

Nice game, puzzles were challanging, but not imposible. Also amazing artstyle.

I love this game, it is a complete game and deserves to have won the GMTK Jam this year.
BUT... On level 14, two spaces to the right of where you start, you can stand on that space, even though it's an empty space. It's not game breaking or anything like that, just a little bug that every game has, and I thought I would point it out.

that was cool

Every time I touch a pot in this game I get this:

Really good entry with good level design.Also, the difficulty curve was very well done. Congratulations!

Great game !

Love it. congratulations

i see this being a full game.

Love it! It's short but sweet.

So hard. But nice.

Pretty cool game, but the webversion has no level select screen? When I press ESC during the game it just goes to a black screen.

Wow! This game is truly amazing and unique! The art style, soundtrack and mechanics together feel like being comlete - not made in two days. Hope that game will get full relase. Imagine playing this on switch. That would be sooo cool!

Very cool game! Really felt like the theme was nailed, nice music, and cool art!

Wow, this game is really awesome, the puzzles are well made and enjoyable, the pixel art is cool and had many levels for a game made in a couple of days.

THE WINNER WOW AMAZING

Great and fun game! I had a bit of trouble on level 11 and 14, but worth figuring it out :)

fun game ^w^

Great concept, charming art style, and a cool soundtrack! I can easily envision this as a completed game, all it needs is a few more creative commands (i.e. shooting and jumping) and an undo button. Would love to see a full release of this game, it'd be perfect for handheld consoles and mobile.

nice! I had a crash though:

Congrats on the win! Lovely game and even though you are "out of control", I always felt in control, great implementation of the theme!

Really fun! :D

Congrats on being the top rated game in the jam! Best presented too, it seems.

EDIT: Having now played it, I could easily see this being a complete game. There are so many ways this could be expanded. More actions, such as jumping, firing a gun (so you can hit distant enemies), or activating a switch (think the on-off blocks in Super Mario Maker); more stage elements, such as enemies with more life, ground tiles that crumble, ice blocks that you slide on, or teleporters; or many other things I can't think of now.

It reminds me a little of Baba Is You. Not quite so brain-bending, but still a tile based puzzle game where you have to plan out your movement carefully. And that started life as a Nordic Game Jam game, so...

amazing game, add more levels and sell it!

Love the art design and the sound effects, really polished for the small time frame you had. The puzzles were fun and felt fair to the player. Really liked when the combat element was added in, was a bit challenging predicting where the enemies would move to though. Great game altogether!

Fantastic. Great work as always Lonebot. Can't believe you got it this polished and 15 well-balanced levels in one jam. It's an honor to share a country with you :D
