Auditorium. oxfordhacker pointed me at this. I loaded up the demo and then, well, played all the way through the demo. It is soooo lovely.


Can you change the direction of directional arrows? If so, how? If not, how do you do the third level?
No, you can't, but you can change the size of them, which affects how strongly they deflect things.
Ah! Yes, thanks.
Err, I can't remember, but the answers are no you can't and it is possible. I'll have to repeat it later and then let you know (oh the hardship :))
That is amazingly beautiful.

I want an iPhone version, so I may have to donate some money to them.
I know! I felt that I liked it so much I actually gave them money for it too (I always like it when that happens - it seems to support the premise that it is possible to run an economy on giving things away).
I guess this vindicates the appointment of Philip Glass as director of the LHC, then.

I have not donated money, because ingenious and beautiful as this game is, the agonisingly bad focus handling made me scream in frustration at points. Once you train yourself to click on a magnet before trying to drag it somewhere, it gets better, but as long as you try to just pick things up and move them around as you always have in every other bit of software ever (and are running Flash 10.0.r12 under Firefox 3.0.4 on OS X 10.4.11), and thus ending up moving the last thing you moved, not the thing you actually clicked on, it's painful.
Huh, I don't think I noticed that at all - how bizarre. But yes, I can imagine it would drive you batty!
Nonetheless, i am now playing this instead of writing my thesis.
I would apologise, but experience of other thesis writers leads me to suspect that you'll do anything rather than write your thesis :)
