The latest in Nitrome's series of icon-sized, low-resolution games, Coil is a puzzle platformer about a snaky piece of wire trying to make its way through an electric world. Intriguing and as well constructed as its brethren, if not quite as intuitive, Coil will have you wrapped around its little finger.

Oh my gosh I am having so much trouble with level 8. I have a feeling that

you have to avoid turning the 2nd saw on when you slither off it (easy enough when you get on) and not lose any length in the process

but I just can't figure out how it's done!

Don't allow gravity to take over. Just step completely off of the saw block and onto the generator block with the same step. Precision is key.

Valid for this game too ;)

I loved this game. Wonderful mechanics, and limitless possibilities.

I'd kill for a full-sized sequel.

I'm completely stuck at the last phase of level 13, where

there are two saws and four plain block in a grid, and two big puzzle pieces to slide around. I can turn off both saws, but the snake dies no matter what I do.



I have not enjoyed a nitrome game in a long time. The gameplay had become so frustrating. I did enjoy this one however level 16 needs at least one save point to be more enjoyable for a final level.

It was nice to finally have one that wasn't so frustrating.


silent george,
13 does not have any pieces to slide around. We might be able to help if we knew what level it is.
