Under rating threshold (show) Wow this game made no sense to me since I have never ever done anything with programming. This was a good game though but too hard for me. I like to play games not study them and spend hours drawing up blueprints.

Under rating threshold (show) level difficulty varies wildly: the real challenge in some is optimaization: either piece wise or time wise. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) I haven't felt this way about a puzzle game since The Codex of Alchemical Engineering. This game is just as much fun, allows for the same variety and creativity in solutions, and yet works on a completely different play mechanic that I've never seen before. I've still got 3 levels left to unlock (and 6 more that I haven't beaten yet), and it already feels like my brain is being stretched to the limit... but that just makes it all the more satisfying when I finally discover the trick I need to complete a solution. There aren't many games that can keep you glued to your computer for minutes on end without even doing anything or watching anything happen... just staring at the level and thinking. Super solid 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) Police! really has me fuddled. To store the length of the string AND divide by 2? I can't find a way to do it procedurally and I don't think there's enough room to do it declaratively for a 10-bit string. I figure anyone who doesn't understand the previous sentence wouldn't be able to help me anyway. :P

Under rating threshold (show) Either I'm not awake yet, or the robotanks level is bugged. I've got it set so that the first 4 bits get passed along, so long as something is there, and then one last one checking to see if there is a 1 anywhere else in there (5th bit is 16, so anything from there on out will make it >15). Loops 0's until it either hits a 1 and then goes in the hole, and kicks out blanks. Had one that was red x5, blue x2, red, which by the methods laid forward in here would be 159. It tells me I should have rejected it. Am I mathing wrong here, or is it something with the game?

Under rating threshold (show) The instructions confused me a bit. Fun game with good strategy overall. On the bottom left, ACCEPT means destroy (run off track) anything that doesn't fit the criteria. OUTPUT means modify everything as stated. You can't see the tapes until you send them, you should try to make it so any random combination will work at first. At the failure results, "output robot" is what you got and "valid output" is what it should have been.

Under rating threshold (show) I definitely would like to compare my effectiveness to others on this one - could you implement the Kongregate API? I like this game, it teaches basic CS skills in a novel way. I'm sure it'd have more mass appeal with sound and spiffy graphics, but I don't care. ;)
