¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So okay, this game is good, however, I would not have paid $2 for it. Although to me, I think the experience was worth it? See for what it was going for, it’s a good game. I LIKE how relaxing it was for a change, sure someone may find it boring and I’ll admit it can come across that way, but I still think it was engaging, and aside, That’s The Point. It’s simple fun, relaxing, or whatever. If you don’t want something easy and relaxing (which it clearly advertises as) then don’t buy it. That said, it could use some work, but it does have a lot of potential. I’m not sure if the creators are planning on making any changes or updates but, new mechanics and just MORE would make it awesome. I really couldn’t decide wether to give this a 3 or 4 but I’m gonna go with the benefit of the doubt because I enjoyed myself and was even sad when I made it to level 60 and the game was over. (Maybe add a more concrete story too, i like what they had going but it needs a little work)
TL:Dr - it’s a nice little game if you want to relax, it’s got a simple mechanic and cute little graphics and a bit of a story if you look, although it might not be worth $2- I’d buy it again

Thanks for the uplifting comment! We're glad you had a good, relaxing experience!!! It means a lot for us! It was our fist attempt at a puzzle game so we need to tune our sensitivity to player expectations.
Edit: Hey! Update with the new levels, new mechanics and more story elements just launched. Let us know if you like it more!

Great game, if a lil bit buggy

This game was so fun! I loved the mechanics and how the puzzles varied in difficulty along with the storyline. Several stumped me for at least a dozen attempts, and I usually play through puzzle games very quickly! However, I was confused with what the story was? I even completed the bonus level and went back to the pivotal levels in the plot to see if I missed anything and still have no idea what was going on besides something vaguely nefarious (Well, a little more than that from the pictographs between some of the levels and the final bonus cutscene, but I don’t want to spoil anything).

Also, I encountered a bug. Sometimes when went back to the beginning of the level if I got stumped, my first tower would disappear when I touched it. If I left the level and came back to it, everything was fine, but it happened a lot during the last 30 or so levels as the difficulty increased and I had to reset more frequently. Between that and the nebulous plot, I knocked off a star, but otherwise I LOVED this. Very relaxing and vaguely eerie puzzle game.

Thank you very much for the review! :D We're working on that bug! It will be fixed in the next update! The story is explicitly vague, for me I know what I was going for, and people have the best interpretations! I just wanted to have something strange and mysterious and not obvious, just like space is!

Good, but subtle

Overall I enjoyed the game as a slow-paced, easy, puzzle game. The description that had brought me in originally was as a “resource management” game - it is not that at all, but still a fun little game.
Some of the levels are more difficult, but most are pretty easy (and that’s okay!). In many ways it felt like the puzzles were a vehicle for the story, so having an obvious one-step level later in the game didn’t detract because it was more about what was happening in the level.
I just wish that the story had been more realized. It felt a bit like the levels ended right when the story was getting intriguing. The game has a lot of potential, but didn’t quite get there for me. I hope that the developer makes more games, though, because there is a lot good here and I want to see what they make next.

Developer Response ,

Yeah we realized this line in the description may be misleading so we've changed it now. Huge sorry for that! About the levels - this is exactly how some levels were made! Some of them are tricky puzzles and others move story forward. Thank you for your review. It's very uplifting! We'll make next games for sure but first we want to add few more levels to this one. Thank you again and have a beautiful day!

Edit: Hey! We've released an update with the new levels and more story! Let us know if you like it more!
