“That was awesome! I love the concept! It’s really original (haven’t played anything like that). It’s rare that I give 5 stars but you deserve them.” – Kinta (on YYG)
“Ingenious concept with a nicely rising difficulty curve.” – Zack (on Game Jolt)
“Love the concept. The variation was good, it actually felt like part of the gameplay (lots of games these days just add variation for polish, rather than being an integral part). The music was great, never got old or annoying.” – Snail (on Game Jolt)
