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