njam... all you have to do is rotate the circle in the middle so it matches with the color of the spheres that come in from the corners. seems simple enough ... [note: shockwave, loud audio]

Nice simple concept with disgustingly jarring visuals.

A newer version of Shockwave must be installed to display this content. Please update your Shockwave installation.

Thats a lie, i have the latest.

It doesn't work in Firefox 0.9, Mozilla 1.7 or Opera 7.5 because of the Javascript he uses to parse the browser and Shockwave version. I installed Shockwave when I saw the error message. The code only requires 8.5.1, but still didn't work. So I looked at the source.

This bit of code from the page doesn't work for integers with two significant digits:
versionString = navigator.plugins["Shockwave for Director"].description.substring(61, 62);
With version 10, versionString is set to 0. This code won't work again until Shockwave hits version 18. :-)

Almost impossible for me, since I can't easily distinguish light green with yellow (the difference is there, but I have some kind of mental block about it). Come to think of it, I think I'll AxMe that topic.

Worth also mentioning that the spacebar selects options. It took me a while to work out how to start the game.

Holy crap, that's a hard game. To me, anyway. Levels 1 through 3 are teasingly simple warmups. Level 4 begins the befuddlement.

It would be nice if the game let you start again at the level that you just sucked at. Levels 1 through 3 are so easy that each time I lost I had to think about whether I was willing to go through them again to get to the hard part.

Little puzzle games like this are so great. I also really like Zuma and to a lesser extent, Dynomite [warning: MSN]. Not safe for work, in the sense that you can waste a lot of time.

Awesome; I'd love a Game Boy Advance version. I'd buy it, too (I bought "Bookworm")...
