This was confusing to me...as you can't get through...

But, apparently you have to press 'Select' here...

Could have been explained a little better. I'm not sure if the casual multi-cart player would have the patience to figure this out.

Ah, there was a hint about that in the blurb, but I sorta had it spoiled because I'd played the game it's largely based on, called Eversion:

Was about to post a thread on this tonight - real life/time hasn't really been kind to me since I submitted my entry. I probably still will just to have some screenshots and the blurb in the first post. I hope you don't mind. (And the rules allow for it - will check first.)

At any rate, there are hints in a few places... I didn't want to directly tell people how to solve the puzzle. I tried to introduce it early enough so that there was only a small area to search. The hope was to make it, not obvious, but hopefully not too painful to figure out.

I may have failed in making it solvable - we'll see as more people play it. (If I get all low scores, I'll definitely know I failed!)

At any rate, thanks for giving the game a try!
