but without 3D glassesits hard to play

Slow Goer.

Now there are a few things this flash does right, creativity and visual apeal. But all else falls flat. The 3-D effect is a very original touch but doesn't do gameplay a good deal of justice. The effect makes it difficult to percieve where obstacles are and where safe areas can be safely accessed. This visual problem can indeed be solved with the afformentioned glasses but in the end, how many people have those laying around? I'm sure the appeal would skyrocket but it makes the game a little exclusive to the ones who DON'T have the glasses. The gameplay is simple but has a slow difficulty spike that is pretty stubborn and the monotonous music (although fitting the theme) makes this an underwhelming experience.

A bit gimmicky.

By which I mean, the gameplay itself isn't really that sophisticated or novel aside from the 3-D aspect. Still, it's a pretty decent game if one has the necessary equipment.

Also, is the game inspired by Paper Moon by any chance?

Thank you.
"Paper Moon" and "Paper Waves" are really similar, this is terrible, I didn't realize this earlier.


could be better if wasn't meant to be in 3D.

Great idea!

I give it a 10/10. Its such a small game, but still, the super simply game is really enjoyable, and the 3D-idea is really nice. Good music to ;)
