Reminds me of the sort of the games I used to play on the original Game Boy when I was younger.

So cool!!

Cool and cute! The graphics are great and the last puzzles have a good design :)

Cool game, now I know all about grub lore


t...dont think u can take this game as absolute grub lore tho, but THANKS FOR PLAYING xD

It´s really a cool game ! Congrats and thanks !

Ey!!! this is neat, thank you

This is cool. I like your graphics

thanks! i like the graphcs on your wink nes too!



Nice work!

Just a heads up, but the background image on the itch page does not fill the screen. I think there is a "fill" or "fit" option in the page customization panel on the left.

thanks! but the page is fine in my part, ill check it again.

It probably depends on your monitor resolution.

is it ok now on your end? i tried adjusting the image


Great game! Loved to play =D




Ayyyy awesome stuff :).
Hadn't heard of NES Puzzle Maker 'til now also, gonna have to give that a looksie. Cheers for the heads up.

Aaaand finished, that was neat haha. Just downloaded the standalone version of the Puzzle Maker so keen to see if I can pop somethin' together.


engine still baby but its pretty awesome to know that its free, unlike some nes engines out there that charges for some reason


Had a quick look at the software last night, can already guarantee its a lot easier to use than some of the paid ones too haha.
