ArtbegottiNetbotsWe've all had that problem. You know, the one where the Netbots start to plug up the kitchen sink so the water doesn't drain. Or the one where the Netbots keep your bowling ball from coming back down the ball return at the local bowling alley. Managing the Netbots can be quite a tricky task, as a group of scientists find out in Maik Haider's Netbots, a puzzle where you have to learn to divide to conquer.

In each level, you'll find a field of Netbots that need to be cleared away. However, they can only be cleared away in specific formations found on the left side of the screen. To clear a cluster, click and drag with your mouse to trace the shape of the cluster. When you release the mouse button, the Netbots will turn the color of the shape you've chosen to indicate that they've been cleared. If you can find a way to split up the field to clear all of the Netbots using all of the shapes provided, you're on your way to the next challenge!

While some of the game's puzzles range from simple to moderately tricky, all can be solved with a bit of trial and error, and a number of puzzles have multiple possible solutions. If you get stuck on any level, a short countdown timer will activate a clue for you, suggesting the starting places for a few pieces. Can you split the Netbot population to clear away a disaster? If so, can you come by the local bowling alley and unstick the ball return? I really want my lucky bowling ball back.

I think it would work better on a touch screen.
In fact, this seems really familiar...

What an odd game. I normally like games to have a bit of storyline to them, but here I found the flavour really got in the way; it would have been much easier to play if the netbots were just circles that got coloured, or indeed simple polyominoes.

I found the later levels easier than the middle ones; tesselating lots of polyominoes in a big rectangle is much easier than fitting the fiddly V-shapes into irregularly shaped

The interface would be much nicer if you could click a shape by the side and then click the patch of netbots that you wanted to colour that shape; and it'd be much much nicer if you could click one already-placed shape to remove it, rather than having to step through undoing moves until you get to remove the one you want to.

Odd game. I guess I give it 3/5 because I'm feeling generous (and it did keep me interested just about long enough to play through all the levels).
