Controls:

- keyboard or mouse for menus

Difficulty:

We hope you enjoy _________. Thanks for playing.

Update:

v1.2 Fixes two levels that were broken on some computers and it again tweaks level flow to make the transition to secret levels more intuitive. Some improvements for readability on very high resolutions too. Finally, I added a 32bit Windows build.

v1.1 Improves the intuitive flow from the regular levels (1-17) through to the secret levels (18-20). Plus there are some small bug fixes.

I've really love this game but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to unlock the last level. 

super cool, but I couldn't figure out the final 3 levels. I was thinking maybe the pictures are a clue to solutions in the level select screen, but I couldn't figure it out . . . .

I wrote some hints here: https://itch.io/post/763655 :)

hey, thanks for the reply! unfortunately that link seems to be broken 

Oh sorry, I fixed it! (it's the reply just below here a couple of posts ---v )

had fun, thanks! (didn't figure out how to unlock 18-20)

First; you can type on the title screen and on level screens.

Second; the 3 icons on those levels give clues. The first one shows 9 underscores, the second is a reversed musical note, the third is a 5x4 grid with all but the last 3 boxes filled in.

Good luck. :)
