this is such a great puzzle! I didn't realize i had to hold on to the key until the very end, so I spent it early, now I'll have to start over... but it was super fun anyway

Noice game but how is it on the rasberry pi


this is so cute aaa

Great game! I won't admit how long it actually took me to get through the level but this was so much fun, would love to see more levels. The puzzles were challenging and I thank you for the undo button. Overall a very fun and challenging game :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

Splendid. Lovely. A great time.

Loved it! I'm a sucker for Sokobans, and this one was really cute. I liked how there were two different "win" routes.


I like the build of the puzzles, but I can't escape feeling that your use of the "just one" theme, feels like an escort mission for a key, and not no one likes an escort mission


Nice game! I like the puzzles a lot, very well done. The undo button is great, not sure what I'd do without it! Hahaha.


This is great, the fact that it's supported on Raspberry Pi is amazing and you nailed the aesthetic of the pico-8!
