When I seen the cover photo, I thought Ooh looks like Limbo! I'm surprised no one has commented on this; this is really cool! I admit, I didn't fully read the instructions, but I understood the concept when it counted. I especially love the save feature. 

High 5 rating from me!

Thanks for playing, I'm glad you liked it! Quite a few people have compared it to Limbo now - glad you found it playable without the instructions too! :)
