This game is ok, but I only hit z once and it takes me back to the start.

I love you. No other way to put it.

Excellent puzzle game with a lot of charm.

Gets really difficult really fast. There was a puzzle at level 6 that felt like a brick wall compared to the levels that came past it. IT could use being shuffled a little bit later into the game.

It's tough to find the right order. Sometimes a puzzle just clicks with some people and is (like you said) a wall with other people. Not sure it can be avoided completely, so maybe a better solution would be to add a hint option or something. I'll think about it!

great game and awesome puzzles that make you think instead of being so straight forward on what to do. but i think you should add a bit more of a tutorial then just 2 rooms cause some people might just run past it instead of trying to find out what to do.


mhughson responds:

Thanks for playing! I tried to make level 3 the blocking stage where you really need to show you understand the concepts but more gradiual difficulty would be nice. Unfortunately Pico8 (the tool used to build this) has very limited map space, so adding more tutorial levels would mean removing "real" levels. :(

A pretty entertaining puzzle game!

The graphics are absolutely adorable, and the music is pretty cute.
The puzzles are challenging, but nothing that can not be solved with some insight and patience!... Although I don't have the first of those two :(

I liked the theme of going back in time (what a powerful witch, right?).
Really good work with this game! :D

Sorry for the bad English.
