This game was originally made for the VGNG competition at The idea was to make a game in 24 days based on a title provided by the Video Game Name Generator.

It's possible to get stuck, so be ready to press 'R' to restart a level.

Pretty Good

Pretty good game here, though I would maybe change the look of the timer, it seems to look a little ugly to me just being a number at the top of the screen, maybe put a nice box around it or something, just to improve it a little. It's kind of easy to get stuck infront of the forklift too, maybe you could allow to enter from the front as well as the back.

The graphics are good and the animation here seems to have been done well, so good work on both of those points. The game is also quite fun to play, so yeah, I like the rank for the time it took at the end to, that was good. So overall, very nice work here.

Good fun

Great game. The graphics were great. Very colorful and smooth. I really thought the backgrounds were unique and fun. The music was great. I thought this type of music was perfect for a game like this. I'm glad you used different songs for each level and not just use the same one over and over again. The game play was good, very fun and I actually enjoyed going back to the levels and beating my old score. I managed to get all gold medals for each level. The controls worked well and were easy to pick up. The difficulty wasn't all that challenging. After level 2 I had to go over every level once just to get down a strategy, but by my second play through it was cake. I hope you make another game with more challenging levels. Good job on this game I really enjoyed it!

Cool idea. a few

Woo! Finally managed to complete the 8 levels, with a 'unicorn power' rank in level 1, 'the internet' on level 2 and gold medals on levels 3-8. (I replayed 1&2 to improve my rank but not 3+)

This certainly seemed like a novel idea and I really wanted to love it.

Your graphics are sumptuous. I love your patterns in the walls, the backgrounds and the style of our avatar is so cute!

The music is well chosen and lovely to listen to - I specially liked the music for level 8. It would have been nice to have specific song titles so I can go and download that last song more easily, but enh.

Anyways, now we come to the level design.

Level 1 was near-perfect in terms of introducing us to the various game mechanics and level 2 took a tiny bit of head-scratching but was a nice level of difficulty. Level 3, however, really brought it down for me.

I had to retry a whole bunch of times - having worked out what I had to do, the boxes would often fall into a place where I couldn't get them out of. It just seemed a needlessly frustrating way to get used to the physics.

I would have maybe liked to see a 'pull' option - perhaps map 'jump' to the up button, then use space to flick switches and if pressed by a block, she'd grab on and pull if the opposite direction is pushed. Being able to pull would also have made level 6 more enjoyable.

I'd also suggest you maybe make the physics more 'forgiving' somehow - certainly making the forklift trucks more inclined to stay upright with a box on them.

The remaining levels were all pretty varied and fun. I would have liked to see some levels with a more puzzley bent - it seems like there's still a lot of level ideas with the foklift truck scenario that you hadn't explored.

I think you should have had some better ending - the current ending just feels like you ran out of time or something - I think a harder last level, or some sort of 'boss' or something to give the game a 'full stop' would have helped.

The 'puzzle' with the steps and switches was a nice change of pace, but felt like it was leading up to something rather than a conclusion.

It's a great game and both the idea and the in-game visuals and audio are great. Ignoring level 3, it was fun while it lasted. I'd love to see it improved and resubmitted with more levels though.

A very nice and innovative game. The graphics are pretty good and the music for the different levels is very fitting, too.

I like the setup of the different levels. Every level is different from the other (well at least the levels I have played ;) ) and evry level is definatly challenging.

The controls work very well and I like that you added a restart option for each level. Otherwise it would be very annoying to restart the whole flash if you got stuck.
