The excellently titled "Mr. Heart Loves You Very Much" is a short, but original and pretty nifty puzzle game by Zaphos designed for Kotoromi's Gamma 256 exhibition.

To complete each level, the player simply needs to navigate a maze to get to Mr. Heart - the nifty part is that doing this involves pushing little 16x16 segments into the empty spaces outside. You can also rotate the maze to further rearrange things.

It's very short (and at the moment a little rough around the edges), but overall it's quite a nice implementation of a fairly original puzzle mechanic. There's definitely something here that could work in a more elaborate project.

Controls: Press left and right to move, and R to rotate the maze.
