I think I found a bug:

When I solve levels from the bottom row, levels above them become unlocked even if they aren't connected. So, I, robot unlocked when I solved Omlette du Fromage, and Follow the leader unlocked when I solved Wild Goose Chase

Okay, that would be a bug. But I doubt it'd bother anyone :)

How about a bug that crashes the game if you ALT-TAB ?

I don't think there's any stderr file.

--------------------

Not a bug, but very annoying - as long as you're in menu, you're subject to being harassed (badgered) by demo. Apparently it doesn't care if you do something (like clicking on several different levels to choose the one that's least annoying for you).
Last time I checked you can't turn demo off.

"Scrolls", or question marks, are of questionable readability. You wait for several seconds until letters join each other, the font could be more clear, and the game isn't paused. The last thing is problematic in levels where time is essential. You have to restart some levels.

I always thought that's deliberate - basically, the delay for the letters assembling themselves screams "either read this OR get the time limit done".

That's why you're supposed to play through it in Easy Mode first! XD

You could just walk on them, then immediately pause the game. Usually the hint boxes will still be able to be read until you unpause the game.

The game not pausing for hint boxen is indeed deliberate.

Alt-tab has always been problematic, I'm not really sure how to fix that, sorry :(
