RobReverse 2An updated version of the original Reverse game previously reviewed on JIG, Reverse 2 is a very simple point-to-move-the-block game where the basic rule is that the mouse input directions have been reversed, so pushing the mouse up pulls you down, and so forth.

Updates on the original include:

  • Homing blocks. While parts of the playing area could move in the original, in the update there are also certain blocks which home in on you, and - unlike you - are not stopped by walls!
  • Invisibility. Usually a bonus in most games, this is a crippling power-up. It is invariably placed so it is impossible to avoid, and means that your cursor vanishes.
  • Gold keys. These unlock sections of the current level, and are simply a game mechanic which forces the player a certain way, without the use of walls.
  • Black keys. These are fun, and despite the fact they should make things easier, they don't unless you think about it!

The game comes with a handy timer, and it took me 1261.13 seconds to finish the whole thing. Literally about half of that time was spent on level 25, so if you do that one quickly you should comfortably beat my time.

In terms of ease of play compared to the first game, it's quite a lot longer. The first game took me about half as long to complete in one sitting. I really enjoyed it though, despite its occasional roar-inducing frustrations! The moment I reached level 26 was a happy one. :)

I was surprised this game was tolerable. Honestly when I saw that the twist was that the controls were reversed, I figured I was just gonna get angry on the first level. It wasn't bad though, I made it to 22 or so before I got bored and tried (and succeeded) to cheat :(.

If you're curious (cheating):

Right click

Then left click where (relative to your right click, and in the reverse direction) you want to go

Grah, made it to 14 and couldn't take it anymore. These precision cursor movement games irritate me; I can understand being precise in some places like in a shooting game where one pixel up, down, left and/or right can mean the difference (at long range) between a head shot (dead) and a body shot (alert and ready to mow you down), but games like this are crazy. Ah well, different strokes for different folks.. or some such.

I have one bug-type complaint: The "start" button is too large. Often, right after you click on it, you'll instantly fail the level because you're already in contact with a wall. For example, try clicking anywhere to the right of the last "t" of the Start spot on the first level. You'll immediately get "You Failed".

779.917 Wow that is a lot more difficult than it seems. I would say that level 25 is by FAR the most difficult! It took me over 20 trys to get that one right. 15 was also a difficult one, but just because you had to be fast in order to finish it.
By the way, anyone looking for help on 15 and don't want to cheat:

you have to go down, and then around and up to the top left corner, then to the right into the top-right corner, and finally down into the finish.

hahaha and after that game I have lost control of my mouse!!!

Hmmm, so the only way to make this more difficult is to have a cat like mine who likes to chase stuff on the screen. Hahaha, she was just going crazy over some of these levels. Not to bad of a game though.

the actual reversing isnt so bad once you get used to it.. its when you get the silver keys and your mouse is made normal again that i get disoriented...

I got 1400...or something like that.
I finished this game and realized that I didn't have any fun while playing it...oh well (And I DIDN'T cheat at all! :)). I agree heartily with Geer's comment about the Start button, and also how you start as soon as you click it, instead of moving the mouse to the dot/square as you would with most games of this type. I found myself constantly restarting levels because I would press start and promptly move my mouse over to the other corner where the little square was...which of course doesn't work.
...Also, level 25 was an easy one for me...I just lined up the square with the top of the little fence in the middle and dragged my mouse across very quickly when the opening appeared. It took me 3 or 4 tries to get it right.

This is in some ways like a poor man's version of "Ball revamped".

I also hate the "start" button. About 20 of my "failed" messages were due to me clicking too far away from the middle of the button.

The game has a nice idea, but it's a bit unpolished. The invisible blocks were quite a stupid addition in my opinion. Also the game is too easy when you turn the mouse upside down, or better yet, have two mouses in two USB ports, but that's a bit of an overkill.

P.S. Don't you just hate this flash games high-score lists? I'm yet to find a legitimate one...

694.197 YEAH, it was kinda annoying wen you fail, that noise that sounds like an old printer or fax machine, that really made me want to stop, but I didn't, instead, I found an easy solution to the game;

I turned my mouse around

it still was kinda hard because

when you get the silver keys it turns back the other way

it was still hard my way though, I died mostly exactly when I pressed start. I dont like this game.
