Google Chrome has a built-in Flash Player, and ever since the new update causes a sound glitch to happen. Before the update, it never occurred, yet it's the SAME file. Honest. Newgrounds has also noted other problems with the new Chrome update regarding Flash:
So... you might want to use a different browser until Google fixes this, unless they're too busy figuring out what the hell to do with G+ now.

EDIT: Issue seems to be fixed now. I did nothing.

Mind-bending, Space-rending, and Completely Innocent Creature's Life-ending.

In this negative-space puzzle game, you'll drag around holes, fall through walls, and bring myriads of miniature Monsters to madness.

Say you sadistically hunger for more levels, or you just detest the levels I've made. That's fine, you can play negative-space puzzles created by other Newgroundians! And you too, can make your own.

Use the Level Creator to design your very own puzzles, and share them with a cold uncaring world. More Monsters to torture, for the good of everyone else!

Think outside the box, fellow monsters.

This game was so damn cute. I don't have the patience right now to play all the way through but I will definitely come back to it. Very fun, original, the little creatures and their screams were simply adorable. Kudos to everyone invloved in making this game. This would be fun to play on the go on my phone...
Very nice game, it;s simple but complicated. Certainly one of the most fun puzzle games of this style I've played in a long time. Well done, I'll be coming back later to finish this (:

Probably the best game I've ever played! I've always been a fan of the idea of negative space, whether it was in books, movies, games, or other stuff, and I have o say good job! I love the gameplay and the fact that it has a level editor is fantastic! This is literally the most fun game I've ever played! I love making the levels and stuff! The music is great too!

Although I can't tell you how many times I accidentally clicked on what I didn't want and it cost me a move so I had to start over. Maybe add something where if you drag something but move it back to the same spot it won't cost as a move or something like that. Overall i'ts an amazing game though! I look forward to playing your other games!

Amazing. It opens the world for hilarious creations.
If there were 3 colors it would be a clusterfuck of confusion.

I really love this game. In fact, this game is the reason I joined Newgrounds. There's one issue, though. I had already completed all the game's levels, all but 4 of which I had beat within the Star Moves. When I registered, my achievements were not kept, but the levels were. Somehow, this resulted in my being able to redo the Completion achievements, but not the Star completion achievements.

I.E. When I completed the first third of the levels within the star moves for the second time, I only got the "Black and White" achievement, and not the "Twinkle" achievement.

As to why this game is so great, you really just have to play it yourself. I haven't played a vast collection of games, so I don't know if the idea of a negative space puzzle game is actually new, but it's certainly interesting. I remember playing this a few years ago and, while some of the puzzles were a lot more rage-inducing to me at the time, the game was still completely fun and addictive. I recommend this game to anyone, at any age, especially if you enjoy puzzle games. The theme of escorting tiny, adorable-looking monsters to their heart-wrenching destinies is a nice touch, too.

However, another small issue I had was with the few levels that require more hand-eye coordination and/or speed with your trackpad/mouse than they do puzzle-solving skill. In the end, they aren't all that hard (although I think I had a lot more trouble with them when I played this a few years ago), but I feel they detract from the overall experience.

God I hate puzzle games like this but this one is so well done I have to give credit where credit is due. This is brain-bendingly difficult. How the hell did someone come up with this? I really like how there's a significant difference in difficulty between a star completion and a normal completion. The gameplay is simple yet clever and varied, and has the potential for both skill and strategy-based gameplay. The graphics and sound are simple but don't need to be complicated. What little physics do exist in the game are coded well.

I really can't think of anything that this game needs. Possibly more of a plot, different themes, or a better soundtrack. Other than that this is really amazing.
