I loved it a lot. Giving the feeling of a polished and finalized game. And it was easy to understand. I just used the glue once and every levels with squeletons were acheived without any trap needed. Good job!

Nice concept, I went through all the level, I think that with a bit of polish, and harder levels would be better. 

And also, I'm from south America, so I felt like a true Mordt. :D

I also think that the levels so far are all kinda like a tutorial.
