I just finished playing this game's eight levels, and I loved each and every one of them. When I entered the first level, the fundamental mechanics were a little confusing at first, but since I was able to quickly restart the level, I was able to get a good understanding of them before I entered the next level. The artstyle is so eye catching, especially with the designs of the machines, and I love how the music is loud and bombastic. It really fits with the factory idea, and helped me stay motivated when I was stuck. To top it all of, this game 100% nails puzzle difficulty and difficulty progression, especially with the final level. I won't spoil what it is, but I did have to take a few minutes to just look at my screen, assess what I was given, and figure out what to do with them. However, I wasn't annoyed by this. In fact, I was anything but annoyed. This final level didn't feel substantially harder than the last levels, and gave me enough freedom to really put what I learned from the past puzzles to the test, which I really appreciate! I felt so smart mapping out my solution and figuring out how to deal with any of the roadblocks, and when I finally beat the level, I was so proud of and satisfied with my performance. Overall, this is an excellent game that reels you in with its superb art and sound design, and keeps you engaged with its well-crafted puzzles, which will make you feel proud of your problem-solving skills, even if you didn't discover the solutions on your first try!

Very nice game, loved it
Super cute graphics, nice puzzle game, thanks for sharing!
I really enjoyed that great game!
Really fun! I beat the whole game.
I think the game is excellently made and designed! All the numbers and breakpoints make sense and play well together.
I will say that level 5 was a crazy difficulty spike for me because of something I felt was not communicated clearly.
I did not know that a targeted ability (like the heal effect) could be cancelled with right-click. I read a comment that hinted at it, which finally let me solve level 5, but it was pretty frustrating.
The game was ok. A bit confusing but ok. It was probably confusing because I was playing it around 3am and I was tired. Anyways, I liked it, though.
webGL or Mac pleeeaaasssee
Really amazing game, i love that you have to think about strategies and stuff. Its really good balanced and polished. And the art is amazing to.
Will you make linux or html5 build?
The game design was nice , but I don't know why I didn't know how to play or it just because I am stupid(I think it is because I am stupid)

This game is so cool! Brilliant art and level design :)
This is amazing I really like the game feel!
Only for windows??? :((
Dude what is with that art and design man. Damn, it's so good.
Great stuff man! Really impressed with the game design and the clever setup of many of the puzzles. The final level wraps everything up nicely and really got me creative.
The double-infinite-money machine let me beat it in the end! :D
Fun game. Last level is really hard. Someone's gotta do a walkthrough of the last level lol
Wow this is really hard.
The last level is like the puzzle equivalent of Path of Pain from Hollow Knight...
Loving the game! but the last level is just too hard for me :(
*sigh* windows only =(
I'm stuck at the last level haha :'( Really cool game though Noa!
Found a bug, if you use a targeted ability (like the +2 health ability) but don't choose a target (so you can cancel and get the energy refunded), the piranha "deal damage after using an ability" will trigger anyway even if you cancel
it s sick!
I wish I can upload my game but it's doesn't working... It's finished but not working..
What is it doing?
Can you make it for mac?
