pretty amazing, and obviously a loving tribute :)

- Overhead world with 4-way scrolling

Awesome game. I loved the witness and this captured its charm perfectly. I played this game on my YouTube channel and really enjoyed it :)
Ah ah awesome :D
That's what I call a fan art !
I love you. Great tribute to a great game. Can the source code be found anywhere?? (totally understand if you don't want to share)
Is there a bug on the 2nd to last "blocks" puzzle, or am I just dumb? Neither of (what I believe to be) solutions to the puzzle are working, even though solving for just part of it seems to be valid.
You, sir, are a king among men. Great game.
You are a Crack, a great tribute
Sounds like a strangely translated Argentinian praise. XD
You ported the mechanics of the actual game into a nes rom, that's something to admire. I really like the work you did with this, a well done experiment. If you are thinking to port all the mechanics, i would say you are crazy. It's not impossible, but it is a tough challenge. Congrats!
A great adaptation, feels very faithful to the original's puzzles and game feel.
It's soothing and fun. A really nice tribute.
