Good game its a mindbender for sure but some puzzles you really had you to think out side the box, got most had to use a wlkthough for some levels ( I dint care for the bosses the last one I gave up on the hands always got in my way wished you put 3 red blocks next to each other would have made the last shot easyer.) In my opinion solving the puzzles was more fun wish the game was just the puzzles no bosses

I finished it after 3h playing and I'm sad that its over!

This game is just great! The level design, the bosses, the mechanics - it works fluently!

I'm amazed!

To be serious, I never played it before, because the graphic was so terrible.

But man, now after I gave it a chance I'm in love!

5/5 Stars, never had so much fun playing a game on newgrounds! :D

great game design, interesting mechanics, the only thing i would change is the graphics.

Great game, the music is amazing and fits the game well, and the gameplay is fun yet challenging, well done!

Reminds me Thetrobot. Graphycal design could be better a bit.
