a bit much to read atm
it was a chip's challenge rip-off though lol
ancient game that i made, someone wrote "looks like crap, sounds like crap, but is one of the best games i ever played"
for dont make game dev to long i hold the concept and effort low
second boring part is designing all the levels but i fyou BELIEVE in your puzzle then making levels is no problem
nice puzzle game i wanted to make, i saw some puzzle-game-maker thing that looked cool, but forgot the name. the boring part is always "lalalala only draw the part of the screen that requires refreshing", this is not a part of chess or any puzzle
if work told me to make it i would make it , and complain
