Very nice game ! A bit hard to understand but overall, that very fun 

Excellent game ,nice cool relaxing graphics. this would have more fun to play on Mobile. More levels would be more enjoable. Keep up the good work.

Took me some time to figure out the controls though.

Loaded it up for the first 2 levels. Seems really cool but I'd like to be able to play it in windowed mode and I couldn't figure out a way to open any kind of menu. I'm assuming those things are planned for a future update but perhaps I'm just too stupid to find them.


Hi there, thanks for playing. Thanks for the feedback, that's definitely something I need to add. Unity used to create game builds that had that a resolution dialog pop up before running the game, but they seem to have taken it away. I'll look into another solution

I did finally get some time to play through all the levels and I have to say, this game is a lot of fun.


Cool, thanks! Glad to hear

FYI, Unity still (as of 2019.3.5f1 at least) allows you to enable the resolution dialogue (it's disabled by default now) but warns that it's been deprecated and will be disabled in future releases


Ah great, thanks! I remember seeing that somewhere, but I'd forgotten it was still available. Will check it out

Cant wait to see more.

Thanks for playing, and for the video! I appreciate your feedback too, there's definitely a lot I'd like to add and a number of things I'd like to do to make it more exciting. Stay safe during these mad times!

Very interesting puzzle element, would love to see what you have in store for more levels.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it. I've just done a small update, but no new levels yet I'm afraid! I'm planning to work on some new levels for the next one

I second the request for more levels, this has been fun, with a nice uptick in complexity. :)

Thanks so much, I enjoyed your video! More levels and lots of fixes on the way.

Glad you liked it. More levels, YAY! :) 

Top down Gunpoint?

I like it! Gunpoint is definitely a big inspiration for this game. Thanks for playing


I really enjoyed it and would love to see more levels

Thanks! I'd like to fix up the AI, and make things a little easier to understand, and then I have a whole bunch of extra mechanics, props, and levels I'd like to add. 

Sounds promising :)

Really fun short game,

Hope more levels come to this really fun game jam game.


Hey, thanks so much. I'd love to add a bunch more, so check back now and then. I'm also thinking about a meta game, involving buying and upgrading teams of robbers, but I think more levels first makes sense.
