NOTE: If the red square doesn't seem to be clickable, try different browser. That's an elusive bug. Sorry for the inconvenience.

really a nice puzzle game!

This is really one of the most brilliant puzzle games I've seen on Newgrounds in a while. The mechanics are simple, but sometimes challenging, you rely on the gamers to figure things out rather than wasting ten levels on tutorials and the graphics are simple, clean, and sharp.

Good job.

Fascinating game! It's wonderful how it does so much with so little. When I rate any game, I rely on three major aspects: the extent to which it utilizes its gameplay mechanics, how this mechanics interact with the story and artistic style to produce an integral aesthetic experience of a game, and how fun and interesting this experience is to me. This game, in my opinion, manages to succeed at each of this aspects: the very few of its gaming mechanics are quite simple and yet allow for great variety of challenging puzzles; game's minimalistic story and visual style are set just on pair with it's simple mechanics; and finally, the overall experience I get was very satisfying with interesting challenges to solve and some funny comments to read between levels.
I also liked the 'transparent' background. Never saw this effect here before, so it felt refreshing and complimented game's overall visual simplicity and restraint even further.

This game is very cleverly designed. The puzzles are excellent. I agree with the other reviews, a few sound effects would make a better experience.

The game is great! But it needs sounds!
