Haven’t tried the new version yet, but two more items of feedback I forgot to mention:
It’d be nice to be able to remove the existing wires. Maybe through right-clicking?
Color issues - I’m mildly colorblind, and am having enough issues that I imagine people with a more significant degree of colorblindness must be pulling their hair out right now, or just not playing the game. I’m not sure how else you could possibly distinguish the destinations, much less the “packets”… maybe numbers? It’s just really annoying to have the game end when a blue ball ends up at purple, or an orange goes to yellow (or vice versa) just because I saw the colors wrong. This might not be a solvable problem… colors can be a pain in the ass. For my eyes, for example, making the orange more red, and maybe making the red more burgundy, while making the purple more magenta would probably be enough, but I’m sure this would either not solve someone else’s problems - or would make their problems even worse.
Edit: Darken the orange and green, lighten the purple. This would be a good start.
Still, a good entry. I really need to finish writing mine, but I’m having a hell of a time focusing on it. I’m worried that it won’t fit anyway…
Edit: My record is 33, by the way… and would have been 36 if I hadn’t screwed up one of the colors.
Edit 2. Another issue: the game SOMETIMES ends early if you have a vertical “wire” connecting to the last endpoint and the ball that enters the wire is the wrong color. IMO the game shouldn’t end until the ball actually reaches the endpoint. I’m not sure if the game short-circuits like this is the final wire is not vertical.
