Which?

TrickyThere are two circles in front of you: Circle A and Circle B. One of them is soft. One isn't. One of them is heavy. One isn't. One of them is painted. One isn't, and so forth. And the question you must answer, in this puzzle game by Yoshio Ishii, is simple: Which? It's very much a mouse driven game, and players will have to point, click, drag, drop, spin, launch, rub, and slide to tell the difference in all twenty levels. Figuring out the challenges will depend less on logic, and more on playful experimentation to determine what the developer had in mind. This can be occasionally frustrating, but all of the levels are quite clever, and have an impish streak of fourth-wall aware humor. In short, Which? is a quality five minutes of fun, that fans of Ishii's Hoshi Saga and spin-offs will find very enjoyable.

Which? Walkthrough.

Soft

Pick up and drop both circles. One will smoosh/ flatten as it lands.

Switch

Click on both circles. The one that turns off the light is the correct one.

Heavier

Drop both circles. Each will shake the screen, but one will shake it more than the other.

Painted

Drag the cursor in each circle. One will leave a streak of paint.

Cleanness

Pick up each circle. One will be colored, the other will be clear. Pick the clear ball.

Soft (2)

Click each circle. One will look like you're pushing into it. That is the correct ball.

Rough

Click and drag your cursor over each circle. One will drag slower than the other.

Thin

Click on either the left or right side of the circles to see how thick each one is.

Lucky

Click and drag over each circle to clear away the color. Choose the circle with the star.

Light

Click and drag the roof/area above the circle upwards. The lighter circle rises faster.

Cutting

Click and drag the right area of each circle. One should have a removable section.

Ice

Click and drag each circle. Then let go. One will keep sliding after you let go.

Rotation

Click and hold each circle. One will move the cursor around.

Ball

Click and drag your cursor on each circle. The view of your cursor should move like its moving around a ball for the correct one.

Sticky

Try to click and drag your cursor on each ball. One shouldn't move your cursor when you do this.

Heavier (2)

Click and drag each circle upwards. One should stay in place when holding it, the other should slide out of the cursor.

Luck (2)

Click and drag any edge of the circle over itself. It should peel away and one should have a star under it.

Old

Pick up each circle. The one that's brighter is the older one.

Bigger

Click each circle to make them smaller. Keep clicking them until they resize themselves. One will resize much bigger than the other.

Living

Click and hold one each circle. The mouse will pulse to the heartbeat of the live one.

Note: each game is randomized so can't expect the same answers for each game.

19/20. "Which living?" stumped me; I couldn't get either circle to react to anything.

I don't remember the number, but "Which light?" was my downfall. Still not sure what was supposed to happen there.

Same here, SonicLover. Not sure what is going on in that level. I was also stumped by the 2nd "Which is heavier?" level.

Living

One has a heartbeat seen on the cursor if you hold the mousebutton pressed on it.

Light

Pull the "roof" up, one will rise faster.

Second "Heavier?" level:

Oof... this thing is heavy... I can barely hold on to it... I think it's slipping out of my hands...

The only level I'm stumped on is the "Which ball?" one. What am I missing there?

Which ball:

Moving your hand around while clicking one of the circles has it turn sideways as if moving over the surface of a ball.

Which luck (The second one) is the only one I got wrong on my first try because it wouldn't react for some reason. Very neat little game.

A little bit short, but otherwise really fun! I did get stuck on Living, though. Thanks to Tobberian for help with that.

20/20 :). I only needed help with "Which Ice" and the second "Which Heavy". That was a nice little game. I hope he makes more!

"Which living" didn't work for me, either, even after knowing what it was supposed to do. The only one I actually got wrong was "old". I still don't understand the answer! But this was clever--might I say even Bonte-ish.

I didn't get Which Old either until just now.

It's not so matter of which is oldest as which has hung there for the longest. If you think about it the wall was completely white to begin with, then one circle was hung up. Some years went by, the wall became more brown, and the other circle was hung up. Then some more years went by to make the wall even more brown. So the bright wall shows the one that has hung there for the longest time.

Awesome! One of the best game concepts in a very long time. 7 stars!!

5 Stars! The idea may be simple and short, but unlike other 'experimentation' type games, there is logic in this, far more than some games that claim to use clear logic. Think about the circles as though they were in real life.
Every one of these I have partially seen in real life. And most have been completely seen.
I hope more games can be made with these simple concepts.
