Cleverest game ever

Writing about web page http://www.nekogames.jp/mt/2008/01/cursor10.html

This game (which you can play in your browser) is simple and brilliant. It works best if you know nothing about it before you try it out, because that way you’ll get a fantastic “Aha” moment when you suddenly realise how to do it. So I’ll say nothing except, enjoy.

    But did you also get that “Aha” moment when you first realised how the game worked? I liked that moment more than I liked getting to the end.

    I was playing this earlier; I liked the moment of realisation where you put a cursor on the switch and get your next cursor up there as fast as possible :) Although I didn’t twig that you had to hold the switch further down in order to get somewhere further up… which kind of ruined it for me as I got frustrated (I think one of the biggest things for games like this is to have a zero-frustration policy) and I didn’t try to get any further.

    That said, I’m rather braindead when it comes to puzzle games.

    I think I was bemused when I saw the first mouse running about, then twigged as soon as I stood on the button to make stairs appear! Got to the level with the three buttons, realised what the game was asking of me here, and resolutely stopped playing :)

  5. It’s a clever concept which I’d like to see more games expand on. Especially utilising a time travel motif, that would be awesome.

  6. Yay! Just realised that annoying box one. Woot. All done.
