Masterpiece in puzzle design. Such an inventive concept.

I really like this game. It’s cute and quite short but it has some charm to it.

I think the puzzles of this game are very clever. Because of that, and because of my terrible skills at puzzle games, I had a tough time with this game. I also really enjoyed the main character's design as well as their bumbling nature.

It started off as a novel and cute puzzle game where you push and pull blocks that I found fun, but my enjoyment started to really waver towards the 4 star and above puzzles as it made me realize that doing those higher level puzzles required actual foresight, and not me just manhandling and hoping the blocks I pushed lead towards the top, was a skill the game was asking from me that I did not have/learned. I don't know if there were specific tricks to the game I was supposed to pick up on and mentally keep a bookmark of, but towards the final few levels of the special challenges, I just decided to use a guide as you have to move the blocks in a certain order so many times it was really getting on my nerves that little John Pushmo and the rewind function were so insanely slow where I was already struggling on trying to figure out the puzzle in general.
Playing this game where I had to stare at colored blocks when some of my play sessions were around a few hours really drained my mind and made me feel like I was in a padded cell made to look like a Rubik's cube with a single plushie in a sumo outfit.
