Real stuck on level 20. How to get a square in the top right tile? Not room to back up. Am I missing some mechanic?


Also, amazing game!

Wow, some amazing puzzle design here! some lvls are immensely satisfying! (24,25 are awesome) 23 was the hardest for me and I don't know how I solved it, disliked this one. 25 was ingenious, thanks! 


What an amazing puzzle game!

I did all the levels about 2 months ago and recommended it to a friend, who then said he couldn't do #25. So I go back to see, and I don't recognise half  of the levels.... Some of them were much harder... what's going on, am I going insane?!? Have I really forgotten such difficult levels in only 2 months? Then I read the new comment, hehe. Took me ages to do the new #22, now focussing on the last two: #23 and #25.

Congratulations to the author, excellent level design and playability.

Really cool game! first, it's simple. then, you learn about all the crazy things you can do. Well done.


Really cool game, really well polished as well. What's the trick for levels 16-25?

I'll give you the trick, but to prevent spoilers for others, I'm putting this through a caesar cipher (shifted 7 forward):
