Hello friends,

I would like to show you my draft of a new puzzle game Variatonix in PureBasic. I'm still developing, but it has clearer outlines. The rules of the game are obvious, I hope :)
I hope you like it a bit! I welcome any feedback from you. Thank you!

EDIT:

Thank you for this game. Sometimes I have strange behaviors.

If I make a mistake by clicking on the sprite Up Arrow, the game is blocked.

Maybe just go back to the game by right-clicking.

This game is cool with a good visual and auditory atmosphere but difficult when you start. I think the timer is too short. A time bonus when catching a piece would be helpful.

Thanks.

Thank you very much!
Yes, I know, the time is very tight. Often. But I hope you always find the way. When I tested it and gave it more time, it was very easy. You can help, right down the icon of time. This icon gives you half the time :wink:

I'm trying to solve all 100 levels :)

Hi zxretrosoft,

Very imaginative box-solving game.
The tutorial is good, I can see what the elements do, but a small tool tip is needed, what are the controls? (keyboard, mouse)

Also as falsam says, the timer is too short.
My idea: the time starts when you click the first element, so you have time to overlook the level.

How are the levels designed? By yourself or randomly by an algorithm?

Thank you very much! :)

The game is controlled by mouse and arrow keys.
You can extend the time by 1/2 if you click a small time icon at the bottom right.

This is a great idea, I will do it in the next version! Thanks!

I designed fields myself - on square paper :)

Of course, it would be better to make an algorithm for random levels. The program could generate them indefinitely. I already thought about it when I created the game. But, unfortunately, this is a very difficult algorithm, and in the end it was easier to create levels manually...

Although it is not my kind of game, it looks superb and very well done.
