Green play button doesn't work, but the first word in the review will take you to the game.

Hm. The gameplay was entertaining and not too difficult, but it seemed like there were quite a few holes in the coding. After using an item, I think a pickaxe, the next two levels involved random jewels dissolving at a frequent enough rate to trivialize one level (destroy the preset blocks) and make another impossible (standard style with a slow starting fall). In addition, trying to continue game after beating the main mode leads to an empty, non-functioning level 99.

The items frequently failed to perform as the tooltips in the shop claimed. I'm still not entirely sure what the dragon ACTUALLY does, but it's certainly not destroying everything on the level. And the cube sometimes flat-out fails to work, presumably by choosing a color of gem not on the screen.

The levels got more and more gimmicky as they went on, often going from actual puzzles to a simple test of whether you brought the correct items.

That said, I did play it through to completion, and it was a fairly fun game despite the problems above. I'm just somewhat terrible at positive critique.

Is it Kosher?

Hm (sez she several hours later), this seems to strike a precarious balance walking the wire of high difficulty without falling into the abyss of impossibility.
My biggest complaint so far: I haven't found an in-game mute option anywhere. I'd also like to see a pause button.
But it has much more replay value than I expected.

There is both a music mute button and a sfx mute button in the top right corner of the game window. There you will find a pause button as well. :)

@Koro, don't know if it's kosher, but...

there is CAKE.

It's in the stained glass background on the mysterious Level 99 (which you get to by beating the game, then clicking "Continue Game" again when you are taken back to the main screen). Note you can only do this once.
