Looks funny, cool, and enjoyable.
Gonna try it out real soon, just need to finish reading something.

I'm on the first level, clicking and clicking, and nothing is happening. Where did I go wrong?

Oh wow, a friend of a friend made this. He showed it to me a few months back :D

You can cut/copy/paste the gnome. ;)

I cannot, for the life of me, beat that stupid level with the spikes. I think it's level 3 or 4 or something.
I find the copy and paste commands work only, like, a third of the time.

That one was tough. I ended up just copying the gnome and sending an army of them in a line through the spikes. Eventually, one made it through.

You know, I tried that...but I couldn't get the thing to copy and paste all the time. I was hitting 'paste' on ever little pixel by those freaking spikes, but the darned thing wouldn't paste! Maybe it just hates Chrome.

lol! Took me ages to realize what to do on the first lvl... how depressing.

It's an intersting ideia. Really. But it's a little too slow... and the music doesn't help either.

ok level 4. I cant copy the gnome and there is nothing in the button room but a torch. how do I press the button?

Edit: NM I got it *FACEPALM*

This game has some really terrible design, but the idea behind it is neat. If only you could use ctrl-V/C/X, or if opening the menu paused the thing! Alas, it's completely goddamned unplayable on a laptop touchpad.

Great concept, terrible execution. So, good for a concept game, I guess. The whole right-clicking thing is just a gimming, since a simple click would be much easier.

It's a cool game, but I'm stuck on the one where you get three enemies, and you can't C&P anyone...

EDIT: No, wait, I got it...

It was really annoying >:(

Yeah, that happened to me too. I gave up, I can't seem to time it right. If only I had some sort of 'kill' ability. Or a wall of some sort.

Can't say this one's anything I'd praise. Forgetting the bad music/slow gameplay, a huge part of some levels is spamming paste...... and there's no shortcut for it. Right clicking then selecting paste 20 times fast made my hand numb-- there definitely needs to be some shortcuts...... like the ones that you, I don't know, use in windows everyday.

stuck on the level with 3 switches int he sky...i have an army of gnomes up there and its causing the game to lag, but the collision detection isn't normal so if the gnomes below so much as touch a wall even if they are on the other side of it they walk back...usually through the first wall...

I can't make this game work. When I right click I just get the "settings" and "about adobe flash player" menu. There is no copy, paste, etc. What am I doing wrong?

There's a much simpler solution. If you can't bring the gnome to the exit....

Do you have a Mac (or at least Safari as your browser)? I'm having the exact same problem.

"Stupid adorable gnomes."

Stupid? But they have an Int boost.

Finicky controls ruined this for me. Trying to copy even stationary objects only seems to work about a third of the time, and I kept having a problem where things would get pasted onto the other side of the screen for no particular reason.

I made it through the hole game
hint for last level: Do like one of the tricks in 'The Prestige' :D

I do have a Mac. Would that really be my problem?

It sort of saddens me that a lot of the games mentioned in this feature are far better than the current-generation fare.

Yeah, it won't work with my touchpad, I might have to break out the mouse...
EDIT: It still won't work, nothing happens when I copy/paste.

I dunno, but I have one too and I also was unable to play it. A lot of games are incompatible with Macs, even flash games, so it could be the problem.

seriously, it is isnt it?
i was thinking "this is the same as the last one, just impossible"
i was dropping crates and torches on them, and then thought. oh right

last level is easy, when it cuts properly

it sort of does pause it, but its really tempermental about when

So much promise with such lousy execution.

Seriously needs to be more forgiving about the positioning of the mouse, and needs to respond faster to commands given

I would be happy with just a fast foward. Setting everything up and then waiting for slow Gnomey makes me sad. Also I accidently clicked the x instead of the restart...

Same thing with me, just a bunch of lines and then the settings and stuff. I could go into boot camp and then see if it works then, but to be honest I really don't care enough.
