my entry is about assembling elephants in a similar sorta way! neat to play this game, which is a bit similar and still very different. it’s amazing that some of these levels are possible – they’re so small, and it doesn’t seem like there should be any room for maneuvering. nice work!

Thanks! I did wonder if the same mechanic might appear more than once (in the jam). It was surprising how compact the Nelly puzzles could be. Still solvable yet non-trivially. I'm definitely enjoying your own variant also, I got stuck quite early, so need to focus some fresh energy on it!

I didn't play all the way through, but would like to say that I really enjoyed the level with the elephant on top, cutout in the middle, and a single pillar/black wall piece at the bottom.  Thanks :)


Oh - great - thanks for the feedback.  Glad you enjoyed it! :)
