A downloadable game

Thank you to anyone who has ever played, downloaded or shared any of our games.  It means the absolute world to us. ❤️

Originally our games were "free or donate" & some people have been very kind in donating some funds to us, but as we make these simple games in our spare time just for fun, we really don't expect any financial reward for them.

If you play & enjoy our games, then we are delighted.  For anyone that does feel compelled to pay for our wee games then the best bet is to make a small donation to the marvelous mental health charity Safe in our World. https://tiltify.com/@sloanysoft/sloanysoft-safe-in-our-world
