  • New Educators Tips help section

Fixes
  • Candle and Lights: Added extra colliders to the glasses so if they fall on their side, they don't penetrate the floor
  • Candle level: Cup in scissors no longer should rotate out of position after scissors close
  • Fan level: Camera pan range and position were off, couldn't see George!
  • Fan level: Can now put ball on either side of trough and get full points
  • Heater level—cat was hovering in space! Gravity turned back on for him
  • Heater level: If cat is placed on the right side of the seesaw, he no longer penetrates the heating pad when he jumps
  • Heater level: No longer possible to get the cat to vanish after he jumps off of seesaw
  • Lights level: Cup in scissors no longer should rotate out of position after scissors close
  • Lights level: Dropping candle on cat no longer clones cat

  • Help text now resets each time you enter screen, and pause to scroll also resets
  • Changed red font on the Rewards screen numbered buttons to white to make it more legible
  • Much higher resolution Reward images after you complete a level. So now if you zoom in shouldn't be so pixelated
  • Picking up Ook in tutorial should be easier
  • Yellow boxes around captions shown during the running of the invention now expand as needed so text will always fit
  • Consistent use of << button on screens, and now << always plays the same saxophone sound
  • Clicking on win screen caused last achievement's text to stay on screen
