TrickyPlexus Puzzle: FlutterByAs the first smatterings of freezing rain pour down upon us in the northern hemisphere, the mind wistfully recalls the elements of spring: The green grass of the meadow. The smell of blooming flowers on the wind. The beauty of butterflies floating through the breeze. In any case, the masters of the jigsaw at Plexus certainly weren't bundled up for winter when programming their latest mouse-driven mind-bending picture puzzle: FlutterBy. This time the subject is bugs and blossoms, drawn in a softer, more childlike style than usually seen from the developer. But don't let the big noses and sproingy antennae fool you: This is a puzzle that will take all your visual acuity to resolve into the final big picture. The edges fit together more distinctively, making it nearer to conventional jigsaws than Plexus puzzles past. Also, the play area is still a bit too small to organize so many similar pieces. Having said that, undoubtedly FlutterBy has the challenging simplicity that will keep a brain teased over the span of a coffee break. Climb out of your cocoon and give it a try!

Yay, back to the old formula. You lost me there with that last pirates puzzle (the one with all the gaps) but this one was back to what I'm used to and love. Thanks, I love these puzzles.

Anyone know why my arrow keys are not working with this game??

Reply

Are there instructions that I'm missing? Are the pieces supposed to rotate? (I'm on a Mac if that matters)...

This one actually took me a few hours to complete!

This was about the right difficulty level for me. Did anyone else find they attached the

flowers that made up the antennae for the butterfly outline

last?

Reply

Jo, I'm on a Mac too, and my left and right arrow keys rotate whichever piece I last clicked.

Possibly Tricky could note those controls in the review, since the game doesn't ever mention them?

Reply

Oh, and A and D also work for me, and both sets also work while dragging a piece.

Ezra, actually there's a tutorial at the very beginning of the game, and it mentions the arrow controls.

Reply

Oh, so there is. I hadn't noticed -- I was pulled away from the game, and by the time I came back the tutorial had timed out.

Always happy to see a Plexus Puzzle, and this was one of my favorites so far. Just the right level of trickiness for a relaxing break.

@Kactus:

Yep, same here. The butterfly shape was a cute surprise at the end.

Looking forward to the next one! (Actually, I kind of wish I knew how these were done. I'd love to make my own.)

Still working on it...

Wish we had more space to move the pieces around. I know you can move it off the screen, but really...

I actually thought this one was a little more boring than previous ones because it felt like a lot of the same thing ever and over. Find antennae shaped gap. Try every antennae ever to fit the gap. Rinse and repeat. I liked more variety of the shapes within the puzzle is what I'm saying, not just tons of antennas.

Tsuregemu 6> SonicLover What's in the box? While there are many different references I could tie that line to, what matters about this particular white box is that it's the centerpiece of Tsuregemu 6, the newest escaper from Paradise Kung Fu. The goal's the same: point and click your way around the box, click the navigation arrows when they appear to change what you're looking at, use and examine inventory items, and eventually unlock the box's final secret: your key to freedom. However, this box is a huge step up in depth from its predecessor, with many more puzzles and secrets hidden inside it than originally meets the eye.  ...

Trimps> Lori.h Lost on a foreign planet it doesn't seem like you have much choice but to survive by gathering food by hand. This is a very slow way to do so, so soon you plant a trap to try and gain something yummy to eat. Instead of finding some fluffy and delicious beast you find an odd looking imp like creature who then follows your every command. You decided to lovingly call it a Trimp and when you catch another and another you realize you could have a small army. So why not make one and try to conquer the world in this idle incremental game?  ...
