First, the 15 second nagware thing never activates. It looks pretty much unplayable on a G3/300 Wallstreet Powerbook running 10.3.9; even the nag screen bogs my machine down. 1.4-2 worked pretty well on this vintage of machine, but this version is a serious CPU hog. No reason why such a simple game should require that much horsepower. Also, it's always annoyed me that the music couldn't be turned off.

EINGEBILDET, every version since 1.3 has had the option to turn the music off, by pressing the 's' key; in 2.0 this has been made more obvious by having two tick-boxes on the title screen to separately toggle music and sound FX on and off...

That said, are you hearing the music when the nag screen is displayed? If you are, that really shouldn't be happening, and I'll have to look into it...

I'll also have to look into why the game stops responding on your Mac...

This version is light years ahead of previous ones in terms of stability and quality. The game is cute with a nice icon. The concept is original too, with blocks falling upon reaching the ground. This allows for some better than average strategy as you try to free as many 'lil frozen guys as possible. I have to disagree with previous comments as the difficulty does seem too easy. Having the option to ramp it up to level 10 does help though and seems adequate. The only thing I wonder about is what kind of *#&@^ would freeze a bunch of kittens like that? Way to many for natural causes! ;)

If the music irritates you, you can turn the music off by pressing the 's' key.

As to "the space were the blocks fall" being too small - do you mean you would like a larger playfield (i.e. more blocks), or a larger window (i.e. larger blocks)?

If this included a mode where the blocks were falling ON and splattering the kitties I'd give a a go.

I like it. Cool little game. I like the meow noise when you save kittens. The only thing is I couldnt figure out how to quit. Command-Q didnt seem to work & there are no menus. Other than that its cool.

@gadgetgirl,

I've taken into account a _lot_ of people's feedback regarding the difficulty/time limit of the game; I'll (very) shortly be releasing an updated version of the game, lessening the difficulty - to anybody thinking of registering now, the update _will_ be free to registered users - but as far as the 'nag' screen is concerned with this type of game, I'm at a loss as to what other registration incentives I could implement; with the feedback I've received, limiting the time the player could play would be a rather... ironic restriction ^_^

(Oh, and regarding the sound/music toggle, I'll implement that in a future version (not the version just about to be released) - you're the first person to request such a feature ^_^)

very cute and fun. i like the idea that you're timed but i need more time!!! i realize you earn time by saving the kittens but i would really STILL like just 15 more seconds added to the whole thing. please? also i'd like an option to turn off the music and sound levels. (i could've missed it tho. i'm not sure) also, i know it's a nag page thingy but i really don't like that it launches the browser when you quit the game. i feel a bit invaded. couldn't you just have a nag page as part of your game? you might sell more that way.

Demo is too short to figure out how to score or "rescue kittens." Most Tetris-like games don't really establish themselves or convey their feel until a couple of minutes into the game.

I'm sure this is a good game and all that stuff, no offence to the author, but I must say when I first saw this my heart leapt with joy for a minute because I thought it was a resurrection of the great old Shaving Kittens game. Boy, I that!
