Frustrating, but clever and puzzling, a game where I actually have to use memory and my brain for once, by the way 1 + 1 = 3 right?

Very cool but i'm bad

I really enjoyed the art, and the level designs were top notch! Very cool game overall

Super fun, nice looking and original game. I loved it. The only thing to say for me is that the level design sometimes is a little bit simple.

it may have made me rage, but i played all the way through to the end. i loved how creative you got with the mechanic.
