Stackopolis Some better-late-than-never Friday Flash. Addictive and challenging (translation: fun and frustrating).

Fun! After level 4 it's a real bitch.

Well, turns out I suck at this game.

Made it to level 10, and realized that
1) I'm only halfway there, and
2) forced isometric perspective fell into disuse for a very good reason.

Good music.

Made it to Level 9 and then found out that I needed to have paid attention to those passwords if I had wanted to continue.

Was fun though, but I wish you could rotate the map a la Sim City. Having a piece "hidden" was the frustrating bit.

Holy crap, that was hard. I like it, though.

The perspective is bad enough, when they change the colour it is too much to take...

Well, that's one way to waste a Saturday morning! Thanks for that.

Didn't work... Why is font coloring blocked...
posted by Chuckles at 11:24 AM on July 30, 2005

I found that I was highly frustrated by the stupid font in the "numbered goal" thing. I.e. I lost because of stupid shit like the "2" and "3" being too similar-looking and having to sit there and stare at the numbers to figure out what I was missing and having time run out. If they could have presented the objective in a less confusing way it would shifted the focus onto what it should have been, moving the blocks.

Don't like the time limit. And blocks disappear and don't re-appear unless you move your mouse...just so. reading those numbers is a pain, the font is too blocky.
