Amazing game! Everything was great! Definite 5 star, although I couldn't see the theme. You really get to redo directional choices as many times as you want.

Amazing beats, I love it. Good job not putting perma death into this - I like the exploration aspect!

A fantastic audio visual experience. The only thing that, in my opinion, the game would benefit from would be if less try and error was involved.

A really cool atmosphere. I had hoped for a little more intense puzzle, but the music and the story were great!

Our guy loved the music with the system of drive, the only thing I would change would be the option of keeping the prescionada key and move straight to the investment of having to confirm my direction after reaching a base.
Great game

I really like this game :D Soothing and fun at the same time! Reminds me of Thomas Was Alone! Stellar graphics and audio!

The game was very good, I really like the idea. A bit difficult and I think it may need a bit more instruction to help someone get playing. Overall, a good game.

At first I was confused with the controls, but I got over it and enjoyed the game a lot. The graphical work you did here is really awesome, makes me want to switch to Unity ;-) Very solid work overall.

Couldn't find the use of theme, but it was otherwise one of the best experiences this LD so far. The beats were sick!

Great presentation of the story, made flowing between the blocks mean something, while also giving direction when you hit a dead end. Great work!

Cool :) I didn't get the theme integration, great story stuff happening, I couldn't tell if the story was tied into the direction i was going, so negative things were said when I went towards a dead end? Pretty awesome stuff :)

Not much variety in this one, at least there was the story to read. Extra graphics point for having indications for the path.

Liked the story, the music is nice, graphics are nice the gameplay is lacking a bit. I think you should try focusing more on your strong points as it is gameplay take too much focus while pushing the other things to the background.

Shifter didn't like this game. Of course he wasn't jealous or insecure about his entry. Do you doubt his story?

Loved the whole thing, watched Jellycakes play it so the story was a bit spoiled, but was still enjoyable :)

Looks gorgeous :) Could use a few more levels and a power ups and all kinds of building on top of it. Very nice.

Nice work with audio and mechanics. Sometimes one had to wait a little for the square to get its queue to send the player away. A small comment on that note. While waiting it didn't seem like there was a chance to regret/override a direction given. I think that would have been nice. Maybe also some indication about the proximity of the target circle. Some examples could be visually pulsing out a light every other beat, or auditory by letting it be the audio source for one of the sounds. Just a thought. Anyhow a really nice little game.

I loved the idea, the visuals and the music! With some more work on the gameplay, you're in the right direction. Good job!

very impressive entry. My only real issue with it is that it could do with a bit more guidance at the start but trial and error still gets you there. Well done on a very well presented effort.
