Under rating threshold (show) Glad to see more information on-screen about the controls now... the first time I played this through I finished the entire thing without realising you could make bridges.

Under rating threshold (show) @ErikM The malevolence machine only checks strings about 12 colors long, if you make a machine that works with 0-12 long but doesn't work over 12 long strings, it will display that message.

Under rating threshold (show) What does it mean when I get a message of "The Malevolence Engine sees what you did there." but the level completes green anyway?

Under rating threshold (show) This game, every year or so I go back after I play another great puzzle game because this is the best puzzle game I have seen in forever.

Under rating threshold (show) Anyway, this is probably the best puzzle game I've ever played, true algorithmic logic programming, but I love the music too, and the humor is irresistible. "Robobears: Enormous metal polar bears! They like to catch fish, even though they can't eat any. It's disarming! Then they eat you."

Under rating threshold (show) Got it, quite intuitive actually. I feel so stupid. After you get through the third level you understand how things work and really get the hang of it.

Under rating threshold (show) Sorry to repeat myself, but after a few more hours I am so frustrated with constantly running into space restraints that I really feel I have to repeat my previous point. Please, please, please give me more space to play on. It's so incredibly frustrating when you have to shred something that was close to working because you simply don't have any space left at the point where you need to change something.

Under rating threshold (show) I really, really love this game. I just wish building space wasn't so limited. In some levels finding the perfect layout is more of a challenge than the logic itself.

Under rating threshold (show) Damn just solved it. Wow. I feel smart, probably not the fact of the matter, but it's nice to feel that way. The trick is to have a set up that checks for whether or not the tape has more than 2 dots, when it gets done checking, it should have already rejected everything that has less than 2 blue dots. Then it is a matter of the final check for a third dot. Which I leave to you, kind reader who has tolerated my jibber-jabber this long.

Under rating threshold (show) to my mind, the only thing keeping this game from being super popular is the fact that the objectives and some of the mechanics are not clearly spelled out. the puzzles themselves are very interesting, but sometimes I had trouble figuring out what exactly I was supposed to be doing! still 4/5, though.

Under rating threshold (show) It doesn't accept "GR" instead of "". Weird, because it accepts "G..." instead of "..." and "R" instead of "". I guess it's a bug.

Under rating threshold (show) 5) (personal feedback) i was almost clicking the game away at level 2 but then i did read some posts before and wondered how could anyone rate it 5 and add it in his favorites. so i kept trying till i figured out what didnt show up in your own explanations. to comprehend: it is a nice idea of a programming-game, but it needs to be much more player-friendlyness for even these people who dont see it and understand it by given gift

Under rating threshold (show) 1) the mute-buton doesnt work, 2) the game gives a very hard starting. you should make a small learning by doing and explain e.g. that there is a machine condition in each level. 3) it took me quite some time to figure out that you can re-watch the info stuff. if a level shows a new info it shall be re-shown again if you havent finished it and start again (or make a button), 4) it also took me some time to notice that the drag-over-text pops up a more large drag-over-text when you drag the mouse at this button for a while. it makes it kinda useless because people dont wait for secounds and secounds again just in hope an already existing drag-over-text shows even more drag-over-texts.

Under rating threshold (show) Hmm...the Malevolance engine "Sees what you did there" now. A good upgrade from the last time I played. Now I have to solve Androids for ALL cases now instead of only strings of only up to 7 in a row.

Under rating threshold (show) Good game but devilishly difficult, I like it. Took me a while to figure out what was going on. I think the game would benefit greatly from better tutorials or game explanation.

Under rating threshold (show) What would be cool would be to have not just 1 grid but several grids that pass outputs of one grid to another like little 5x5 grids in a big 3x3 grid. Mostly for people in groups who actually wanna take this to a new level like making something that can find the square root of a number :P (i'm pretty sure i couldn't make something like that but i would like to see how long it would take for a machine to do that)

Under rating threshold (show) @J4AWildstar This is no flaw. All problems are solvable. Yes, you can solve Androids for infinite sequences. "It wants blue followed by the same number of red, so I try clearing it and reprogramming blue red, and it's not happy" This is the wrong way. You are supposed to check the string in that level, not change it. for example if the input is "bbrr" then it should be accepted. If it is "brrbrb" it shall be rejected. Changing a string in a level where you are only supposed to check it for specific properties won't influence your result. Hope I could help.
