What's the most difficult piano piece?
. Is it La Campanella
, written by Liszt to show off what only he could do? (performance
) Is it Balakirev's Islamey
, which even Balakirev struggled to play? (performance
) Or Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit
, written to top Islamey
) Does Godowsky double his points by reconfiguring the already-difficult Chopin for the left hand? (performance
) And if someone plays all four hours of Sorabji's Opus Clavicembalisticum
, written across four staves to fit the extra notes, will anyone listen? (perfomance excerpts
, score excerpts

is yet another new, incredibly charming, Eyezmaze
puzzle game from On, that GROW
guy. It is along similar lines, but while in GROW the arrow of time is firmly fixed in the forward direction, here you can flip back and forth between different times whenever you want.
Despite this, the game is quite a bit more difficult than GROW (especially if you want the maximum score - keep going after the little guy escapes from his cage!), and it's very new so there may still be a few bugs, but it's immensely satisfying to solve!
