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??


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



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?


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.


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.


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.

Untangle> Dora All you need to do in this elegant minimalistic game from FRVR is drag the nodes around to untangle the mess of lines in the starry sky so that none of them overlap. It should be easy, but as the shapes rapidly get more complex with piles of lines, it becomes anything but!  ...
We Know the Devil> Dora Classic Magical Girl style tropes meet themes of modern religion in this indie visual novel, as a trio of kids at the Summer Scouts slog through bullies, boring campfire singalongs, bugs, and the fear that maybe who they really are deep inside is wrong... and everyone knows it. Surreal, scary, and close to home, We Know the Devil is about "being weird and queer and wrong and hoping against hope no one will find out when the actual, literal devil comes for you."  ...
Alice House 2 No. 02: The Garden of Live Flowers> Dora Funkyland takes us on a garden maze tour and asks us to stop and smell the roses in their latest Alice in Wonderland themed escape, as you must find five items bearing the image of the red queen before you can leave. It's a flowery, fun time, without the hay fever!  ...
Serious Dave> Dora When a bunch of babies are bunny-napped to open an evil portal, our bearded hero springs into action in this simple but challenging platformer where an army of the undead needs to be dodged and blasted with split-second timing across different stages with different weapons.  ...
