This is such an incredible game!


Becoming small was  such a fun moment, i think its really smart how you use that moment at the very end to reward the player.


Wow!!! Amazing

One of the best sokoban puzzle games I've ever played. The mechanics are so well implemented and intertwined, the puzzles are creative and engaging. Playing it, one really feels accomplished when the "Aha!" moment arrives. You know the puzzles are well designed because there is no need for a tutorial.

There is just some room for improvement. This game NEEDS more sfx/music. During the long spans of time you spend thinking and testing ideas, the game feels lifeless because of the lack of music. Also, the movement feels a bit clunky, especially when you have to move blocks large distances. There is a bug when you press r then z. 

Otherwise, really, really nice game. I hope to see more from you. Your puzzle design is great. Keep developing!

ok this was an incredible puzzle game i got stuck once and had to look up something but damn was this fun and mind blowing i figured out what the final twist was going to be faster than i think most people did (only slightly annoyed at how the controls were there) but otherwise i loved this it was really fun

The game is broken for me. The spiral doesn't work, and I can only move sometimes...? Like, at the start. I can press R, Z, and then move one square. Moving once allows the green thing to continue on it's path. I can move freely once there is no more path for the green thing to go over.

Game also won't move on from the "reached checkpoint sound" screen.

Edit: Works on Microsoft edge, not on google chrome

Some others have mentioned something similar. It apparently works in Chrome if you play it from this link: https://v6p9d9t4.ssl.hwcdn.net/html/7120022/index.html 

To be clear, it works in Chrome for me, so I'm not sure what the issue is. Would be helpful to know if any errors show up in your JavaScript console (ctrl+shift+C, then click the "Console" tab).


Just started and just realized the twist. (or at least the first one. There might be more later. I don't know.) I was in awe when I discovered it. Very few games have managed to have me flabbergasted like that, especially not when I just started. I can't wait to see what else it has to offer.

How do you play this game? Every time I watch the tutorial videos the spiral fills all the way, but when I play it only moves one square, and the character won't move more than one space

Hmmm, a comment below suggested they had the same issue but was fixed by playing at this page:  https://v6p9d9t4.ssl.hwcdn.net/html/7120022/index.html 

I'm not sure what's causing this issue for some people.

hey, just wanted to point out that while the text of that hyperlink is correct, clicking it actually takes you to the older url from your original comment below

Oops, thank you - fixed!


I have played a many puzzle games and i have to say this is the best puzzle game i have ever seen how did you ever create thee puzzles that must have bean hard.


thoroughly impressive and great fun to solve :D


Walkthrough for I'm Too Big for the Target







I absolutely love these type of puzzle where previous parts of the level is reused in unique ways different from the original solution. Stunning how the same level just brings about so many 'aha!' moments.


I have no idea how one even begins to design something this inter-connected. The penultimate sequence of moves was profoundly satisfying to figure out :)


Thanks for the kind comment! If you're interested, I did a bit of a developer commentary type thing on my YouTube channel: 


I wasn't too big! Excellent! I have a soft spot for games with *that* kind of twist.

I think it's bugged. I can only move once in either direction, then nothing does anything, except z :/ 

I found a way past the bug: https://v6p9d9t4.ssl.hwcdn.net/html/7044294/index.html This works as intended for some reason.

Oh no, sorry. What browser/OS are you using? I had to make a small optimization in PuzzleScript but it might not be fully cross-platform.

Chrome 108.0.5359.125/Windows 7

Fwiw, the new link will be this because I updated the game: https://v6p9d9t4.ssl.hwcdn.net/html/7120022/index.html


Finished in ~40 minutes. Brilliant and creative level design! Had a lot of fun playing it.
