JayDouble WiresAnother unique new game appeared recently on the amazing blog of DofI, a Japanese game developer that generally uses Processing to cast his magic, however this game is in Flash.

Imagine being like Spiderman and able to shoot sticky strands of web out from your hands. Using those elastic strands you just might be able to attach to surfaces and propel yourself forward.

Well, that is just what playing Double Wires is like, and it's a lot fun, too.

Simply click the mouse to shoot a wire straight towards the mouse pointer. If close enough to a colored surface, it will adhere to it temporarily and yank you toward it from the elasticity of the string. You can have two wires in use simultaneously, hence the name of the game. Use them to keep moving forward because the game window doesn't stop scrolling. If you go too far outside the game window (in any direction) the game ends.

This side-scrolling, arcade physics game has a very simple objective: make it as far as you can. I managed 185 yds. What's your record?

Play Double Wires

Cheers to Wistan and Evan for the heads-up about DofI's new game. =)

I wish there was more to the game than just gaining yards, other than that, very very cool.

Fun game; it's a bit like String Theory from the Experimental Gameplay Project website, or Pendulumeca... both excellent games.

You might also like Tri-Arachnid. The web-spinning takes a while to get used to, but it's rather neat.

I love the concept, and the implimentation... just wish the levels were more randomized. The first 4 or 5 levels get rather monotonous when they stay in that order time after time after time.

Good game, but the buggy wires lead me to many, MANY deaths. I also died because the next area wasn't loaded when I went to shoot something.

Anyone got any word on how to make it pass 100 yd? When I get to the verts with the crack through the middle I just can't get past.

Oye. My bad. It is, of course, Flash for me, too. With all his other work being in Processing, I just assumed.

It was late when I posted that. So...tired. =)

309.76 great game..very challenging the trick is to slingshot your self up and over most opsticals so you get more time to grab

It'd be nice if the wire didn't detach until the next one was connected, maybe doubleclick to disengage. Actually, the best implementation might be involved drawing from and improving teagames design; have each wire controlled by a key (I'm thinking the [ .] keys; fairly neutral on the keyboard for lefties and righties alike). Pressing either key disengages its wire, and clicking while holding that key down slings the wire in the direction of the click. It should make for a nice rhythm of rocking back and forth on the keys, mimicking the rhythm of left-arm right-arm you'd feel actually webslinging.

Jay, whenever you post personal scores, I always try to beat them to make me feel better about myself. :) heh, anyway I got 184.83 yards, ALMOST beat you! I feel like a failure. Heh.

I've been playing this game for a while. It's simple, and incredibly fun and addicting (just like everything from Dofi).

A good trick early on is to double-click, sending both wires at the same point. Acts like a slingshot, can whip you right out of a fall.

For some reason, your link opens up to just a blank white page. I'm using IE.

It seems I've had a lot of troubles with DofI's games doing the same thing. Do his games not play well with IE?

Cheers,

I'd print screen, but I don't feel like the trouble.

After 500, it seems like the autoscrolling moves fast enough that one simple misake is enough to bone you.

Also, some of the transitions in the 450+ range are mean - a lot of the sections I would go low on and then it would transition me to something where the nearest anchor was at the top of the screen. Requires some quick clicking.

I am always amazed at what DofI produces. This game is spectacular because the concept and goal is simle, yet the actual gameplay is just challenging enough to keep me coming back for more. I simply cannot stop playing this game and trying to beat my best record. As Jay said the game is unique, and I think it is very original. DofI always seems to be a step ahead to come up with something that no one has done before.

To get between the verticals, shoot the wires alternately to either side, until you arte high enough to shoot the ceiling

My highest score is a 658.11 yards. I could keep going but after like 550 yards or so, the scrolling seems to speed up and even if i make the slightest mistake i get sucked off the screen! oh well.
