Where is demon girlfriend? :(

What a fantastic game! Art style was very cute, & the puzzles were great! Only *minor* critique (& honestly, very minor) is there is a sharp difficulty jump towards the end of the game, but for free & 14 stages, that's not a huge issue.

great, got through the whole game in about 20 min, fun little puzzles. not too hard but 13 and 14 took a bit of figuring 

this is great! couldn't figure out level 13 it's very hard

i dont know how this happened



















quick and fun

that was heaps of fun! There was only one level I couldn't get past after a couple tries (the one with all the skulls, I just couldn't wrap my head around how they were moving), so it was the perfect challenge-level for me and a lot of the puzzles made me think. Nice sound effects too, and interesting idea!

These types of tile puzzle games hold a special place in my heart ever since I was a little kid playing Bloxorz.

With that being said, the added mechanic of becoming "possessed" and having certain movements forced on your character added a nice layer of puzzle solving that I enjoyed that much more. None of the puzzles were difficult as there were only so many movements to make each level, but it had enough variety that it never got stale.

The only issue I had with the game was:
- You can skip levels by pressing enter; I'm not at all sure why this was added (maybe for people who are struggling or for speedrunners?) but it felt unnecessary

All in all, it was a nice, quick little puzzle tile game that followed and improved on it's formula

My playthrough:

Very good!

Downloaded the game and hitting the jars crashes it, saying there is a Code Error, I got to level 7 before this was an issue.
