Sup? Imagine a potato... a tater... thingy... inside a maze, pushing blocks and encountering turnstiles. That's pretty much what this game is all about.

Also known as Puzzle Boy 2 in Japan, the game is just like Kwirk except with more content; modes, puzzles. On the other hand, puzzles seem to be more straightforward and generally smaller in size. This movie completes the puzzle mode, the only completely deterministic mode in the game. Kwirk calls this mode as going up mode, by the way.

Step counts a.k.a. points and times for each level.

Tompa: Replaced the movie file with a 6 frames faster version. Claimed for judging.
Tompa: It's fun to try to solve the puzzle yourself while watching, only to sometimes see a different approach being made and you get lost. I personally the combination of the music together with the sound effects!
Gameplay and puzzle solving was solid enough for an Accept to the Vault!
