Adding poly.play as releaser for this release is kind of historical revisionism, is it not? They do sell the game now, yes, but not back in 2016. It was a pure Pond release in 2016, I'm sure.

Cute and nice game with the intro and careful level design. Some more gameplay variety would add to it.

sorry, I'm probably the black sheep here in these comments...
I gave a 10 because the author spent so much time and energy in creating all those accurate levels. he did that in an amazing way, also the gfx is so nice with all those very cute small pets. lovely!
but: this game reminds me all those ones by codemasters (cj series, etc), a kind of games which never really turned me on (slow gameplay, no hard puzzles to solve, etc).
