White tiles - disappear after one step
Gold tiles - never disappear
Red tiles - step on one of these and all red tiles will disappear
Green tile - level escape portal

I actually got pretty far in this game. How far, I'm not sure. There is no output of level. Good interesting puzzle though.

Watch out for the Shadowman though, he may be following you ... !

@dw817 I added some text to let you know your progress in the game. : )

I finished the game, it was great!

level 8-9-10-11 were a joke

the design was really good

the concept was good and fun

but too few levels and too easy but that was really good nonetheless

thanks @floman for the feedback. this was for a jam, so i didn't have that much time to create levels and smooth out the skill ramp.

glad you (i think?) enjoyed it anyway.

Really cool game here. The floor tiles being about twice as wide as they are tall makes this look different from many of the other Pico-8 puzzle games out there. Nice touch.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. I found the final few stages were the most enjoyable. The presentation as a whole is fantastic and every aspect of the game is well presented.

I would love to see a sequel or updated version with additional levels.

Quite nice!
It's a simple concept but definitely well executed. The music is also rather nice, too.
If you ever try to expand it past the jam version, more levels with more varied mechanics would be neat to see (ex. crystals that only the shadow can collect, tiles that act as switches and making certain other ones appear/disappear, tiles that fall after a certain number of moves, etc.). Maybe adding a little more personality to the characters could be fun, too (things like a victory pose, and maybe an idle for the shadow where it laughs at you).

Hey, I love your game! Just wish there were more levels ;)

I did a sprite hack called 'Bloc Drop'. You can check it out here:

Hermoso juego

The music in this really gave me a vibe!

P#67362 2019-09-07 17:02

Got softlocked on 12
Edit:Happened again on 13, but now I read the description and realized I could reset the level by myself.

Very good game, fun puzzles and good music.

Lovely puzzle ! I enjoyed everything about it !

The last level broke the laws of physics

P#87806 2021-02-17 16:57

Nice game! Good job.

P#87816 2021-02-17 21:41

Really nice game, love the music

I like how the shadow Valdi works. Your moves have to involve real Valdi moving, while the Shadow can stay still, but not vice versa. Makes for a pretty decent challenge.

P#110006 2022-04-10 18:03

Just beat this great job. Some of the levels are great.

P#123007 2022-12-25 14:14

This was short, fun, and fantastic! Well done. I hope you keep making more games!
