Early April 2019
- Game is now in color!

Map/Map Editor: Make obnoxiously hard puzzles!
This is where it all started.
I wasn't happy with the direction other games were going, so I decided to take the elements from them that I liked and combined it to make something of my own.
Settings were added, so you could now customize your controls and make new pieces
The original version used an crazy kick table, that would basically let you rotate anything anywhere
