NOTE: Do not click the "Reset" button to reset a level, press the "Z" key!!!

Help Valdi escape the icy maze, despite a shadow’s efforts to thwart your progress.


Arrow keys to move Valdi
“Z” to reset a level
(levels reset automatically if you are stuck)


White tiles - disappear after one step
Gold tiles - never disappear
Red tiles - step on one of these and all red tiles will disappear

Neat concept, but like other people have said, some of the puzzles were really easy and intuitive. Of note, if you beat the game and hit Z to replay it, the red blocks on stage 5 will fall without stepping on any other red tiles.

I liked the game idea and it looked nice. When I got stuck on level 13 I pressed the reset button on the lowerleft and it reset the whole game, not just the level. Then I had to start all over at level 1. Could have been more clear as what that button does.

I'm sorry. Pressing Z will reset the level. The "Reset" button is confusing, because it restarts the PICO-8 system. : (

This was very well executed, I've seen a bunch of these falling platform type games but they never keep my attention. You chose some really nice, simple mechanics and created a lot of depth with them.

My only concern is that it was a bit too easy. I feel like there was a few later levels where I solved them with my first gut reaction, so nothing was really learned (went back and found them, they were 8-11 and 14)

This is a fantastic jam game and I would love to see you add some more levels and general level design polish.

Very nice! A very nice puzzle game centered around some very simple mechanics, would love to see more levels that introduced more mechanics in a future version!
