    Very nice game! Do let me know if you ever make a browser-based version. :) I included it in my GM48: Colors are Important compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

    Loads of content, tons of really interesting mini games. Nothing too challenging, but very well thought up. Responsive input, interesting riddles and puzzles. I had a lot of fun playing, and was constantly surprised at each new level and it's individuality. This is a brilliant submission!

    It's really not often that games make me smile (most recently, it was the alpha version of SCALE by Steve Swink), but I can wholeheartedly add Hard-Pressed to save the Universe to that list. Just about every new level made me smile or laugh as soon as I figured out what was up. This was funny in a breezy, effortless way, and even though the lone mechanic "press the button" was simple, I was not even for a moment tired of doing it. It earned its laughs and definitely didn't overstay it's welcome; I would happily have played even more of it. Really great job!

    This game took me by surprise, and was really fun to play while it lasted. The puzzles and lighthearted atmosphere made it a joy to play, though I doubt there is much replay value, and more indicator of the fact that you EXPLODED A PLANET would make a good punchline I feel. Really enjoyed this entry!
