The basic idea is not complicated, but man that timer/pro difficulty mode is tough.

Neat concept. I'm liking the creativity I've been seeing in these types of things lately.

Nice to look at, but kind of boring and simplistic once you figure out the method. I suspect this one is aimed at stoners and young children.

yeah, once you get it, it's pretty easy...and, i'm not even stoned.

Ok looking over the instructions again, I'm supposed to get an extra 4 seconds for every one completed which the game is clearly not giving me. No wonder it's freaking impossible.

This is awesome! And I am neither stoned nor a small child!

Seems almost retardedly easy? I got through 23 levels in 1:23?

Yes, it's easy. I found it relaxing. Like Planarity, but braindead.

I showed this to my lovely pixie, and he had this to say:
I love this kind of thing.

It seems like I found my natural talent or something. Got through all 64 levels in like 2 minutes and ranked 38th of 1160 today. Basically it seems to be all about "the really long lines are probably supposed to be parallel to your vision."

How are all you posting 1 minute+ long times? They only give you 30 seconds for 64 levels.

Not challenging (especially without the timer), but I found it soothing and beautiful.

Mmmm, mellow...

Previous versions of this game idea have been annoying about mirror images or having things be upside-down. The vector lines between the starpoints really make this a lot easier, and less frustrating. A very good going-to-sleep-seriously-just-two-minutes game.

This game tickles the part of my brain that aches for completion and accomplishment in tiny 5-second increments.

Been done better. Also boring. Not all flash games are created equal.

They're probably doing the timed run (middle) level instead of the hardest level. I'm not getting that extra 4 seconds per level on the hard level either. This isn't difficult, but less than half a second per level would require some super-human ability.

For some reason, this causes my computer to heat up and shut down completely, at least when it's running off battery.

Coign of Vantage is a similar game (previously).

Tough for me to get the mouse to work correctly...

I thought it was pretty and relaxing. I am apparently a small child stoner.

But, I;ve also not seen a flash game like this before, so other recmmendations along the "been done better" line are welcome.

This is the most soothing flash game I have ever played... Lovely.

No, it's not terribly hard, but I think it's a pretty cool concept, and I appreciate the pictures they chose.

Sure, it's no Team Fortress 2 or Starcraft, but it's a nicely executed casual game.
