Pathologic

Starchild Pathologic is a puzzle game which does what it says on the tin – it's about paths and it's logical. Though its logic may be the kind that makes you alternatively shout at the screen when you get stuck and whoop at it when you pass a particularly nasty level.

Pathologic Every level is a maze made up of square tiles, and you can only step on the transparent ones. You move a white circle with the [arrow] keys, and your job is to collect all the transparent circles without stepping on the same tile twice. There are fifty mazes, ranging from "beginner" to "very difficult", based on the number of tiles, though this might not reflect your notion of difficulty, as some of the bigger levels could actually prove easier to solve. One very nice feature is that all but the ten last puzzles are unlocked from the start, so you can freely browse through them and solve them in any order you like.

You'll especially enjoy Pathologic if you're fond of minimalism. The levels are stripped down to a bare stylish minimum, with pretty neon lights and neat geometric shapes. This is definitely a good choice for a game which requires concentration because its clean design offers no distractions. So take a deep breath, focus and remember: whenever a tough level gives you grief, you can just laugh in its face and skip it.

I like it. It reminds me of a tonypa game--simple, easy to grasp, with a good difficulty curve. Very pretty, too. Good find!

An extremely engaging puzzle. Just wish there were a backspace when I make a wrong turn instead of having to start all over from the beginning.

I agree with jcfclark... this definitely needs an undo button. Especially when you are almost at the end of a level and you accidentally go one square too far. Overall a bit too easy for my taste but nice aesthetics. Then again, I have just been playing English Country Tune so my brain is kind of ruined for other puzzles now.

Wow, this is really "path"etic game. ;D

Wish my mind worked like Dandy's and these were "Too easy." Have worked through a lot of them but keep returning to lvl 22 and thought maybe POP would help me solve it. For the most part, challenging for me and enjoy the aha moments when I take the correct path.

It'd also be nice if there was a level menu. I don't want to skip through 20 levels that I've done to reach the one I'm currently at.

I think level 46 "Pathologic" cannot be beaten

Ah I got it. It was actually really easy once I realized what I was missing.
