This game does not work at all.  Once I get past the virus warning to actually install it,  I select any level and it immediately tells me I failed the level.  I never get a chance to play any of the levels.  The map show three stars, even though it gives me a repeated failed message.

Thanks for your feedback. We have had reports on a few users struggling with a false positive for their virus scanning software, this seems to be a problem with the installer software. I'm sorry you were unable to play the game, it sounds like none of the level files were copied during install.

We are hard at work on creating a package that doesn't require which will be released (for free) late 2019.

Are you going to make an announcement about this? I see that the only file for download is currently a .EXE; will there be a .ZIP file or something?

I am currently working towards a version that doesn’t require an installer, but as of now I don’t have an announcement to the date. It will be posted first to itch as always. 

Hello! Could you include a version with a simple zip archive, without the installer? The setup was caught in my computer's antivirus software, and I couldn't install it.

We can certainly look into producing one. Great suggestion!
