Flip Out is a straightforward, easy game to play. The objective is to flip over all of the white tiles within the time limit. If you do, a time bonus is awarded. You get to move on to the next level if you get at least 75% of the tiles before time expires. It's a simple idea of game done right, and it's fun and addictive, too.

Gets kinda boring with time though...

I agree with you, Monkey, that it can get boring after a while. I believe Kyle attempted to add some depth to help ward off boredom with the inclusion of bombs and dark squares as you get into the later levels—though I'm not sure exactly what the darker squares are supposed to accomplish.

It's an interesting game idea, and one that I think has potential, especially if someone wanted to take the idea and embellish it just a bit farther.

I really like that the game relies on gesture rather than clicking. Its nice to see a designer use the mouse's advantages in a simple interface.

omg...that was really easy, i stopped because i had to do chores...something like 37k or w/e...just wait till i have more than 5min to play ^.^ very nice game Jay

You can 'cheat' by left clicking and no new squares will emerge. If they removed this, it would be much more challenging.

Plus, they could come up with shapes that are harder to do in a single line.

But overall, good concept.

The fun of this game was short lived. While the use of scrolling rather than clicking is nice. and the addition of bombs and dark squares (which you have to roll over twice to remove; someone else said they didnt know what they did) adds a bit more when you get higher than lvl ump-teen-something.

However, the game wasnt coded to be user protected, simply right clicking and unchecking 'play' (stop for some players) will stop the game timer, giving you infinite time to goof off. Simply recheck 'play' again when you are done and erase any squares you acidentally added turning it back on.

The poor protection of the game saps too much of the fun. But when you get really bored you can always stop the timer and draw jumbo sized pixle art with it.

Caleb - sorry, you're right I forgot to include one. Fixed.

Nice feedback, Teonis. =)

If someone needs protection to keep from cheating, well... that's just sad.

My experience has been that if someone wants to cheat, he will find a way to do it.

You can't protect people from themselves.

Wow - you guys have done way more rigorous testing than I was expecting. Apparently it needs a lot of fixing if I ever update this sucker.

For all you non-Mac users I highly recommend Tower of Goo.

Ah, I remember Tower of Goo, very interesting game. I tried to make something similar in Flash, but failed.

I only got to lvl 20, got really boring...

I found this game completely addictive. Just when I think I can't get past a certain level, and thus might get bored and give up, I suddenly break through to several more levels.

I'm impressed by how simple it is.

I absolutely love this game! I figured out that if you move diagonally sometimes, a white block won't appear, so it saves time. And by the by my score was 33881 or something, i kinda forgot....

Only got up to 51, I will keep trying.

Jay - It appears that the link has been changed to:

Sadness. The link isn't working. :(

[Thanks for the note. Link fixed! -Jay]

How sad this was added in 2005 and it still doesn't have a average at the moment, how sad!

[Ratings weren't introduced to the site until January, 2008, so there's a lot of games that missed out on ratings when they were first introduced on the site. -Jay]
