The puzzle mechanics are nice, but by god is the music more similar to a broken lawnmower than anything that I would want to listen too.

Realy nice game!!!

Very clever puzzler! I feel like the mechanics are a little unintuitive at first: why was an egg of all things, which is fragile and static, chosen for something you would bounce on or call over to you? Once you get over that and get used to it, however, you find that the game impressively uses the mechanics to their fullest, I felt. Definitely had some clever puzzles: a lot of them involve paths were are red herrings that try to make you stray the wrong way if you don't think it all through. Package that altogether with charming graphics and sound and it's surprisingly great!

The music is here and there, and the player character is a bit questionable looking, but the environment looks nice, and is a lovely idea for a game. Solid stuff, for sure!

The concept of the game is well executed.
