I really enjoyed this game it was quite fun. I feel like there were some small issues like:

Being able to pick up and move objects after placing them would be nice.

The colldier on the buttons at the top of the screen is a little small.

After picking and dragging an object right clicking would return it straight back instead of having to click off it then right click on it. It felt like there was a lot of latency in the controls but that might just be the web browser version of the game.


Nice work, i look forward to your next dev log!

Incredibly fun game, and I could definitely see it becoming a great mobile app if you do add the ability to drag the items to new locations or to/from the inventory. One thing I love about the game is the fact that, though the puzzles can be difficult and stressful sometime, I get a nice satisfaction every time I complete one. Great job, especially for 48 hours!

The game freezes every time i die

Really fun game for a 48 hour jam.  Love the robot.

super fun, great level and puzzle design

i found a bug when if you put a cube or a jump pad on a saw  its duplicate the cube or the jump pad so if you want to win fast use this bug

probably could be a full gam

Great game!

If only the game supported the numeric keys on the keyboard.

Cute game !

Great game wth amazing level of polishing for 48 hours Jam :)

Dead robot still can win (level 9)

Ha I love the glitch when you drop a block on it almost feels intentional at least I don't think it is...

i found a glitch where my character disappeared

reminds me a bit of a stripped down version of The Incredible Machine

So i tried this game and it was really nice. I enjoyed myself since I haven't seen many games with this style anymore. I even made an entire video about it. If you like you can check it out.

cool video

I'll explain the dupe to the best of my ability to those who want to know. Reminder, I am NOT a game dev, so I may be completley wrong about this. The dupe happens because whenever a saw touches a box/spring, it gives you a box/spring back and removes the placed one. But if you place a box inbetween two saws, both saws will give you the placed item. This is a dupe preformed correctly. Notice the box will touch both saws when dropped.This is a dupe preformed incorrectly. Notice the box will only touch one saw when dropped, returning only one box.

Hope you found this guide helpful, Bye! :)

yeah your right, it's probably programmed that when box touches a saw it will remove the box and would +1 to the amount of boxes counter. because it touches two saws at one moment it does it twice but only by deleting one box.

welp how good

(+1)

cool i love construct

yoo what's wrong with unity i'm pretty sure you know nothing about game engines

no it's just, f to my pc

Very good game!

nice game but i found a bug if you place while playing level 7 i placed the springs on the platform over the pit and i removed the platform few time and the springs started increasing

found unintended puzzle cheese using blocks falling onto springs that work as a catapult to the robot

Great little game. Enjoyed playing it. 

i have a problom i am on Crome OS and it wont show the game and i can hear but its just a black screen you can see the tab is makeing sound but its not showing up

tired of the robot? want to remove it from existence? here is quick and simple way to the that!

step 1: place a spring and box in the spawn corner in level 10.congratulations! you've removed the robot from existence!

i found that if you place a spring over the box with a saw over it,


it will sometimes make either the spring or box duplicate.

edit: just drop the object on to a saw

edit: it seems to only work on saws of a certain height?

Fun game and easy to pick up. Hope you rank in the top 100 in the GMTK Jam.

Love everything about this game, a critique would be having a quicker way to recall items but other than that the game was thoroughly enjoyable and beautifully polished

Gameplay from 3:53 - 5:16

I'm bad at puzzle games but yours made me play it all the way through. Great game with a lot of versatility in how the levels are beaten.

Really good! The gameplay was pretty fun, and fit the theme pretty well.

Though, one thing you could have done was make it easier to remove and add items, as I feel like it adds a little too much artificial difficulty since it's hard to replace items quickly.

i found a bug if you are placing an jump pad over the saw and it destroys and you take the second one really fast they will duplicate

I had a lot of fun playing this game! I actually had to use my brain for once haha! I absolutely love the art style of the game, the mechanics are great, I really like the animations and I genuinely enjoyed every single level this game had to offer! Very very well done!!

found a bug if you place a block over the player he glitches lol

Man this game is good. Sad there aren't more levels... Really wanted to keep playing. Good work and amazing game for 48 hours of work.

This was really good.

The puzzles were creative and challenging, yet I found myself accidentally completing the puzzles with less than what I had, which was good, as it meant there was more wiggle room.

Over all, well polished, and a clever design, really enjoyed it 10/10!

I think the same! 10/10!

This was so good!!! The gameplay was fun, the idea is cool and it fits the theme pretty well. Only issue is that (for me) it would be nicer if when picking blocks the whole square targets it to pick up - not just the item itself. It's hard to explain and I'm not doing an amazing job but I think some people will unterstand what I'm talking about or even had the same problem. That one thing doesn't stop this game from being one of the best I played this jam :D

The best one i've tried this jam. Congrats!

wow, really great gameplay and graphics are perfect!  Very enjoyable game!

You get to play as grumbot

yeah the hacked grumbot.

This reminds me of flash games I played back then and that is a good thing. I love this!
