Under rating threshold (show) Level 23 - Oh, a new concept introduced? The good news: you get a bit of a break as we stop the trend of increasing difficulty, making this a bit easier so as to understand the new concept. The bad news: of course, after you understand that new concept we're going to use it to make your brain explode on the next level.

Under rating threshold (show) One of the best puzzle games I ever played on here, the minimalistic design combined with the natural feeling of every new introduced reaction-circle makes it that you wanna keep playing and beat the game. But final dance was one tough cookie. But yay for me, I did it.

Under rating threshold (show) I loved it. It was a very good puzzler. :) Also, I kind of did it on accident, but if you scroll down with your mouse (if you have a scroll, otherwise just use Pg Dn) at the end, there's a little poem that I didn't know would be there since there's no scroll bar on the side to show. :P

Under rating threshold (show) If you're having trouble with the badges, arrow keys, lag, etc. - help us make the game better by filling out a bug report! Thanks in advance. Also, to see when circles are hidden, enable hints mode from the menu (press spacebar to access).

Under rating threshold (show) @Hikaru If you are able to get all the way to the last level while simply randomly pressing buttons then grats for having unbelievable luck and an enduring keyboard that would allow such odds to play out. Otherwise, maybe you should try to determine the definition of random especially when you apply it to patterned movements and changes.

Under rating threshold (show) Really nice game. Difficult but far from impossible, and the levels are short enough to quickly learn from trial and error to correct your mistakes and advance.

Under rating threshold (show) If you were aiming for simplicity, then you got it nailed. The large objects, small grid-like levels, and miniscule file size makes this a completely bare-bones game. That last puzzle was really infuriating for a while, but I managed to pull through. Keep up the good work. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) We've just added a hints mode in the menu in response to your feedback. Visually representing the information without compromising the aesthetic was a rather tricky design decision, so we hope you enjoy our solution. Thank you once again for all your support! With love, Wanderlands

Under rating threshold (show) That was great. It's amazing how complex these puzzles can get on a 3x10 grid, but all of the levels managed to be fair, yet extremely challenging, which was awesome. Kong need more puzzle games like this. :P

Under rating threshold (show) When the yellow "axis" updots were introduced and started moving up while i went left and right, i freaked out. Who knew such simple concepts could seriously confuse a person? That is why i think this is one of the best puzzle games ever. 5/5 ^_^.

Under rating threshold (show) Man, that was hard, but good. Was the last sentence supposed to be a "hidden message"? After beating the final level when you can see the text, try scrolling down with your mousewheel while in the game window to see what I mean.

Under rating threshold (show) Wonderful. It was a beutiful mix of easy to understand, and difficult to execute. Simple and satisfying. An adequate challenge but not beat-your-head-against-the-counter hard. All in all 5/5. Great puzzle game. I look forward to more. Really emphasizes taking your time. It was a nice lateral exercise for me.

Under rating threshold (show) Finally, I did it. The hard badge way. None of the time I invested was wasted. Another thing to say: I have this sticky key problem and posted it here. Some time after I got a Message by the developer that they had implemented WASD scheme. Thanks a huge lot! You are a great example of how a developer can act!

Under rating threshold (show) Even while trying to solve Impasse, my mind found some room for awe of the puzzle creators. You must be some highly creative and intelligent guys indeed! Congratulations on, and thank you for, an excellent game =) The increase in difficulty did not seem strictly chronological to me, but I suspect that was because I learned along the journey, as it should be! Best puzzle game I've played.
