Take charge of an adorable (but disorderly) animal marching band in this addictive logic puzzle game!
You play as a stressed-out band leader rabbit who's job it is to organise the fussy marching band members into the correct sequence.
Each animal has a particular condition that has to be met before they'll be happy. How do we know what it is? Asking them directly? No! By checking their social media, of course. What a society we live in.
Today, the elephant doesn't want to be behind the clarinet (superstitious maybe?) The lion will ONLY play if he's at the front (what an ego...) The panda wants to be between two other animals with fur (is that for warmth perhaps?)
Read the clues, re-arrange the animals, and attempt to march! It's simple at first, but more animals and clues will be added every few successful marches.
If you want to add an element of reactionary skill to the game, try playing against the clock in hard mode!
This game actually started life as an answer to a problem we were having with a different (still unreleased) game! We wanted to make a logic puzzle like this, but it turns out writing one is much harder than solving one...
Five objects, each with four properties which can each have one of three different values? Then find a set of rules that leads to one and ONLY one correct order? We burned through a few pages of notebook before Tom just threw up his hands and said "I'll make computers do it"
So he wrote a tool which can generate these sorts of puzzles. And of course being a big fan of over-solving problems, he made it work with any number of objects, properties or values. And that's when Adam said, probably jokingly, "We should make a game that's just this"
And we did.
