Notes and Discussions:
  • Shane (9/16/2014): I made it through this one after putting it aside for several months.  To be honest, I never really thought of this as a game.  Throughout, this one felt like a proof of concept for a neat technology (namely starting the "game" by making the user draw two stick figures, which then serve as both a character and the player's avatar, with individual limbs moving as if walking), more than a polished offering for a puzzle-loving crowd.

    Many of the levels in this game have multiple ways to complete them.  Usually, I enjoy having more content to work through but everything here was...well...clunky.  The screenshot I selected even shows some of the awkwardness.  My avatar is stuck behind a rock.  I am mildly annoyed to have to see this now as I type it.

    All of that aside, the concepts that were being played with were reasonably neat.  If these things made their way into a more polished game, I would be happy to play it.
