    Midas is absolutely brilliant! Kudos to you guys on such an addictive little concept. It's nicely polished as well. Love the minimal-yet-expressive feel of the game.

    This is a great idea, and executed well. Make a full iOS game or something like this out of it!

    Very sweet little game. The ending credits are evil :)

    Dec 21, 2011 @ 6:30pm

    Brilliant. I would totally steal this if I was of the thieving bent.

    Everything about this game is wonderful. It is simple in its rules yet challenging, and the sound and art complement each other perfectly. It's got an innovative mechanic that is engaging and also sourced in mythology. I love it.

    This is brilliant. I've always loved when people make games based on stories, and this is no exception.

    Great concept, flawless execution. All around great game. Very enjoyable.

    This is the most wonderful game I've played during LD22. I hope I find some more games as special as this.

    Really fun, a great interpretation of the theme, and polished enough that I wouldn't even have thought it was a rapidly developed game if I hadn't been told. well done :)

    This is a great game and one of my favorites. The gameplay and the story tie together very well and the puzzles were thought-provoking but not annoying. The sound effects work well. I ran into one annoying bug where hitting R before falling to death would restart the level twice.

    I hope you continue development and add some music and character animation!

    Great job!

    I had a hard time with this game until I realized that brute force might not be a good idea here. The puzzles aren't that hard if you stop and think for a while.
    Nice minimalistic graphics, great concept, good execution.

    Dec 24, 2011 @ 5:21am

    Great game, not too hard but makes you think and the art style really works.

    This is my favorite game from the Jam so far. Awesome game mechanics, clean style and you even gave it a light storyline. I'll get back to this one after I've checked the other games. Great job!

    I really like the art style and the game mechanic - but for me, when too many blocks turn gold, the game slows down a lot.

    One of the best games this LD.

    I loved this. A few of the puzzles were quite tricky, but they were all well done. Very effective at telling a little story.

    Veralos says ...

    The main mechanic is original, and leads to many fun and challenging puzzles. The graphics and sounds are simplistic, but still very effective. Overall, an excellent game.
