It's boring. Four minutes without failing one level and I quit. Gimme Bubble Bobble any day over 'connect the dots.'
thom: try to do it faster and faster, thats the point i guess, tho a bigger map would be cool, this smaller ones need max X secs on each "map" i guess...

tho you should be able to restart at where you loosed :)

How about making it so not all squares appear at once? They appear with some sort of timer, two, three, four or more at a time...? I dunno. The game just isn't 'hectic' enough. It needs something.
needs more levels definitely. This "infinite mode" stuff is just repeating the already done levels...

hey there,

thanxs for your reactions.

we might add some extra stuff to the game, but b4 that, i just wanted to be sure, that such a game has never been done before. i don't want to get involved in any legal problems or so.

in a german forum, one guy said it reminds him of "mirrormagic":


here's the picture:


didn't know this game, but i guess COMBOLING is quite different, is it?



Wow !!

Very nice game, indeed!
But the basic idea might get a bit boring in higher levels though. There should be some little variation or 'add-on' for making the idea even more addictive! ;-)

Never saw such a game till now so far...I'd say.

it should have been made in 3d instead, that would have been somewhat challenging. so instead of just moving on a plane, you can move inside that 3d cube made out of smaller cubes.

sorry, no. it's perfectly valid in 2D as it is. A 3D version is an optional treat, but needed to make a nice puzzle game.

Especialy the unforgiving interface reminded me of Impossible Mission: one slip of the reflexes, and you were back to tile one. Fucking infuriating game.

Er...I meant NOT needed (DOH!) :)

what i meant was that this game wasnt very challenging as it is now, sure the idea was great but adding an extra dimension would certanly give you a greater challenge and more to think on.

Very cool idea! I like it.
here's another of those highly addictive flashgames =



again a very simple idea, just as my





try to ask your question in a gamers or game-developer forum, I am sure you can find somebody more qualified to answer your question there.

I can't give you any links but try googling for some.
