This is really well done! The music fits perfectly, and that was something the original was sorely lacking. I agree that the hints come a bit too soon, and an option to disable them would be nice. It's already a little easier than the original because of the fancy and awesome drag-select feature, but then again, the original was probably way too hard.
5/5, although I may be a tiny bit biased.
PS: Thanks! Coming across your game really made my day, and I registered just to post this.
Wow, I'm really glad you came across my little remake. I loved the original, such a cool idea. I couldn't resist remaking it.
Thanks for the feedback, my day has also been made. ;)
I REMEMBER SQUAREZ!
It probably wasn't that fun objectively speaking, compared to the stuff on Newgrounds today, but I couldn't find many free and fun games on the Internet back then.
This version improves a bunch of flaws the original had. Have full marks for giving me an evening's nostalgia.
It's clever and pretty fun. The hints come too early, though. It's somewhat annoying to have things pointed out before you've even got to look around thoroughly yourself. The pause feature is unnecessary as it does not pause actually pause the game. It's clickable and gives you a pause screen, but you can still run out the timer in it and lose the game.
Overall it's not bad though. Good work. :)
I didn't realize I left the timer still going, thanks for letting me know. I'll go fix that.
I like it but it's not for me. It pisses me off too quickly to be honest. I would not recommend it if people are easily fueled with rage. I don't want to get anywhere close to the original mind of this game. You did great by the way, but this just ain't for me... I can't even play Candy Crush...
It's hard but fun and very creative. 9/10
