Reason for the Grand Award / Award for Excellence

I was surprised at the high perfection. The system of setting fire on a dark stage to enable a player to understand the surrounding stage structure enhances his/her concentration.

The smoke flow is also a guide to lead the player and aunique and essential part of the game. The operationality and a proper puzzle factor, and graphics reach satisfactory levels. I can play it smoothly in admiration, feeling “I get it.”

If some surprise and sharpness are included, I may enthusiastically play the game. I wish for their future success.

The action puzzle game where you should use the smoke flow to understand a shape of a stage to go ahead.

You should look for an exit by using smokes with different characteristics. For example, you should set fire to grasses at your feet and sometimes turn gears by using making good use of smoke.
