I completed and enjoyed the game; however, it definitely needs an undo function for those times you push a block against the edge or something like that and it also needs a save state for when you do an intricate setup and 1 fumble makes you loose the birb and you then have to re-setup everything.  The lack of music is rough, would be nice to have at least something there.  It's a bit program-my, which is fine and I like but not for everyone of course (not that it needs to be); however, it strikes me as not nearly as elegant as 'Baba Is You'.  All that said, I do hope to see more work done on this and improvement since it does have potential.

My friends enjoyed watching me play it and gave me advice on how to finish the puzzles. It was fun because we all struggled together. Once our ideas started to work and we managed to reach the objective we truly got that feeling of achievement. 10/10
