Hazel and Hector are two snowshoe hares who live on a series of tiny islands and eat grass. However, they are very nervous about camouflaging with their surroundings! Help Hazel and Hector eat all the grass in 10 different levels.

Educational Fun Fact: In real life, snowshoe hares' coat colors change between brown and white with the seasons to better camouflage with snow in the winter!

Made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 54 (theme: "Limited space.")

How to play

  • Click and drag to move Hazel or Hector.
  • Hares can move freely on spaces of their color, or on mixed-color spaces, but on spaces of the opposite color, they will become nervous due to lack of camouflage and be unable to move.
  • When a hare is nervous, their partner can push them around by moving into them.
  • If Hazel or Hector moves onto a grass tile that matches their color, they will eat the grass. Eat all grass to complete the level (and make sure both Hazel and Hector are on matching tiles.)
  • There are 10 levels in total.
  • Use Z to undo, R to reset, M to mute. (There are also undo/reset buttons in the upper right corner.)

I've included Hazel & Hector in a compilation of games from the Ludum Dare 54 game jam @ 45:50

Looking forward to your next outing!


Very cool, thank you so much!


So cute! I love how they sigh :3

Also it is very impressing that you did all of that in such small amount of time. Just wow.

cool game. the puzzles were fun and i like the pixel graphics


It's so cute! The puzzles are nice! I love their animations when they are scared!

Awesome game!  Wish there were lots more levels.

very cute animations and interesting push-based gameplay. Significantly easier than your previous puzzle games, but the animations are awesome.

yes, i think this one’s more in line with “the great flood” rather than my more involved puzzles (great flood was fairly easy and also only had 10 levels. and had a similar art style with outlines. weird coincidence lol)

Great game! Have  you made puzzle games before? 

I like how the puzzles weren't too hard but also not really obvious when you first look at a new level. You kind of have to play through it (actually or in your head) to see which way to approach it. Well done.


Thank you for playing!

I have made other puzzle games before - check out my profile for more. :)

Nice, I played a bit of the squirrel one. I like that one too!

Not my original intention when playing your games and leaving comment, but now that I see it looks like a lot of your profile is puzzle type games - I was just thinking about if I could turn my jam game into a puzzle game - like only so many moves  to serve all the customers or something. I dunno tho. If you have a chance to play it, let me know what you think, as I haven't made puzzle games before.
