Game Review
A brilliant little game with a creative concept I don't think I have yet seen before! Basically, this is a block-pushing puzzle with a small twist. I think the idea behind the game can be best described as follows; I don't want to be alone, I want to be left alone. In summary, you have to move the little x block surrounded by other less opaque block away alone in the number of moves allowed.

It is a little disappointing because there are only 9 levels but overall, it is still fun as is. There is a very well-balanced progression of difficulty and I managed to solve those seemingly difficult puzzles in 15 minutes. I was surprised by the last puzzle. I think you guys can solve it pretty easily if you ever played Pokemon Silver/Gold on a Gameboy; it is somewhat the same puzzle before fighting the 5th gym leader. I feel so nostalgic now... Where's my Gameboy?! :)

I personally like the lack of color; adding any color would likely ruin the feel of the game in my opinion. Less is more sometimes, however a little more contrast is needed for the text. It is just a little too subdued, but for a flash game that is created under 7 hours for a competition. You got to admit this is definitely a good piece of work. Even if I got the knowledge to make games, I don't think I would have even complete 1/3 in of what the developer have done in 7 hours.
