Pattern tool tips are now online!

Nice game concept!

As mentioned, pattern tool tips would be great!

Developer(+1)

Thank you!

I am already working on the tool tips.

Neat concept! a few tooltips explaining the patterns would be very helpfull though :p

Developer

Thank you!

And yes the patterns are hard to remember. I programmed it and played a lot but often I am unsure about the patterns. I will add the tooltips!

Very cool puzzle game.  An original and seemingly risky idea too but it works. The only negative I can think of is that I'm not 100% sure on some of the AI patterns but that's probably due to my lacking in intelligence and patience.

I am glad you liked it!

I had the same doubts about the movement patterns. They are deterministic but except for red triangle & square hard to predict. I often run the level to see how the shapes move and then make a guess how the correct wall placement could be.

I am thinking about adding tooltips on the shapes that show the movement pattern. But I am not sure if that is actually an improvement. Maybe it is more fun to guess & retry than to do the brain twisting calculations what will actually happen?
