The music is awesome, the text is cool, I gave up quickly on the first one, and I also used the menuitem() as a reference for my own game. Great game!

I think you should stop the cryptogram wobbling about. It makes it quite uncomfortable to play,

I love this. Your menu systems and UI all look fantastic and your interpretation of Bill Wurtz's music is awesome.

@dredds It's supposed to be the card that it's on moving slightly up and down. Sorry that it makes you feel uncomfortable! I'm making it static.

I am very impressed by the control scheme you've come up with. It's really quick to navigate and enter the solution letters.

I thought I recognized that music playing in the background... Love these Bill Wurtz covers! The game is also really neat, but by the 6th puzzle I was just brute-forcing the three letter words. I'm not really great at it...

@TheV360 Not many 3-letter words start with A. Also, try filling in words synonymous with the theme wherever they fit...

A feature request: I'd like a menu option to start playing at a random unsolved cryptogram.

I really like the interface! The limited controls force creative solutions! I played through 31 puzzles--so good! Good work! Oh! And the use of the font, too! Good job! EDIT: And the quotes! So good!

@JWinslow23 Puzzle 45 "WRITEEN" should be "WRITTEN".

@WaterSplash Thank you for telling me! I'm glad I still have the original compressor on hand, haha. I've just updated the BBS and itchio versions.
