This is my entry for Ludum Dare 27, which had a theme of "10 seconds". View my entry page here!
I thought my initial idea of generating a randomly overlapping tangle of wires would be easy, maybe even too easy.. but it turned out to be impossible. I'm still curious about a workaround (notice that when a wire overlaps itself, the outline isn't drawn correctly), but I think it works okay as is.
Maybe! I think the idea could be polished into something more fun, and I could see this being an Android game. Hmm...
Somehow, the fact that it made Boom when I got bored...
The concept is good but 10 seconds for 4 wires is far two much.
I'm aware of the theme so ten seconds is sort of not a choice.
Maybe five or six, or more with time(like each 5 levels)
Multiple wires to cut could be cool two.
By the way, nice Website!
Thanks for playing! Yeah, it might be a little too easy. I try to avoid making games too hard, but I might have overcompensated here.
Thanks for the compliment! A big overhaul is coming, so it's an exciting time to join!
Scored 81349. Pretty happy with that. Excellent little game, seems perfect for android...
But I kept trying to drag my mouse across the wire to cut it. Damn touchscreens, they're making us all lazy.
10 seconds was a lot of time to figure it out. Switch it to 5 seconds and you'll have a tough game. Or maybe it gets shorter each level?
Anywho, loved it. Would vote it ~4/5 for the ludum dare, but I didn't enter so I can't :D
I check which wires are cut and then only ones left, if it were in circle, I couldn't do that.
Cool to realise what my brain is doing....
