A Demon's Portion

Prose and Motion is an anagram game with built in physics.

Pick up letters and move them around as you need. Pick them up by their corners to change a C into a U or an E to an M or W. Many levels have several possible solutions, any of which will unlock the next level, but they all have a "best answer" that fits the clue.

Well, that was fun until I was expected to build that damn bridge.

I'm starting a campaign to ban the letter P from the English language. Send donations.

FINALLY got that goddamn bridge built

I feel like I'm being studied for something.

I gave up at the freaking bridge. Went back to plain old text twist and for a second expected the letters to flip around.

I didn't mind the bridge-building - this was a fun game. Some of the challenges got downright sadistic toward the end, of course, when it became less about anagrams and more about being really precise with the mouse (using the letter shapes themselves as supports).

This is good. (Except for the part where I got the bridge built and it told me there was a better word)

You are, but not the one you are thinking of. I've said too much.

Tell me about it. Level X almost had me in tears.

Wow, what a great game. The one towards the end where I had to hang the cantilevered supports using the Es for hooks was tricky but very satisfying when I finally figured out what to do.

Does anybody know how to unlock the second bonus puzzle? From what I gather, you get #1 for completing the A-Z, and #3 for picking the best words for each, but I'm stumped as to how to get access to #2.

Awesome. I can't wait to try a game like this with a multitouch interface.

Wow, that was entirely no fun using the focacta MBP touch pad, I gave up on the third word.

I don't get why SUPER is a better word than PURSE. I just have to keep building and rebuilding until I read the creator's mind? Or is there some way of predicting it?

The text and level design are supposed to hint at the best word. Not always very well, though.
