Great reviews. This game should have been a nominee of the Best Game no-one played of 2010! :P

We definitely should have been an indie nominee! It's hard to get the word out there that Clones exists, but nearly all of the feedback about the game has been positive so it's just a matter of working hard to raise awareness. I won't rest until Korea has a televised professional Clones league 8-)

Here's one quote (highlighted below) from that review, to be filed under "most unexpected analogy for a lemmings-like game":

As soon as you begin to feel wary of the usual click and grind of the standard levels, a new mechanic or game mode will appear out of nowhere. This serves to spice things up and rekindle your interest – like a financial seminar presented by a topless supermodel.
