More webtoy goodness has arrived from Dofi blog, this time in a physics-based tower game called Stick Remover. The creator of the World of Sand games is famous for crafting unique online toys using the Java-based Processing language (although this one seems to be in Flash). The result is always something strange and wonderful.
Stick Remover presents you with a tower of sticks—reminiscent of Kyle Gabler's Tower of Goo over at the Experimental Gameplay Project—wobbling under its own weight. A star is suspended from the peak above a red line. Your job is to remove as many sticks as you can while keeping the star above the line. A good strategy is to start at the base and pick away one twig at a time, careful to keep the structure as symmetrical as you can. Drop the star more than five times and it's game over!
There are only five levels to Stick Remover, and you can move on to the next puzzle at any time. The goal is to rack up as many points as you can by removing sticks, so work with individual puzzles as long as you dare to build a strong score.
Thanks to Aloloo for sending this one in!
