Friday fun -- Magic Cube

Friday fun -- Magic Cube (Flash) It's admittedly a little time-consuming to figure out the interface, but it's beautifully done, an interesting concept, and the results can be stunning. (first link post, please be kind)

I searched and searched, and while I'm unsure that the search engine is actually working (a full-site search for the word "magic" turned up 0 results, which seems unlikely to me), I have never seen this link here, and hope I'm not redundant.

Also, after my heavy participation in the long street harassment discussion last night, I thought my first link post ought to be a little more light-hearted.

You do know, babylon, that you can specify "in the past week", "in the past month", "in the past year", or "since day one" in the search form? Searching on "magic" "since day one" gives 32 results. (Happily, none of them are Magic Cubes.)

Yes it's time consuming but you're right the results are lovely.

Although sometimes it's time consuming and the results are awful. Bong bong bing bong. I'm so rubbish at this kind of thing. If there's nothing to shoot, i'm out of my depth.

At least one, so far, is playable. Great fun.

Cool. I'll have to play with this some time when I have time.

I did know that, gleuschk -- and I did try 'magic' in threads and comments since day one -- and came up with nothing. Perhaps my odd combination of platforms (Mozilla on a Mac) is causing the search engine some undiscernable distress. At least I am spared the double embarrassment of a redundant first post, though.

Bong bong bing bong -- there's plenty of shooting games out there, rob, heh.

I also liked the idea of the cube as community-display.
