aharown: Subby is clearly an idiot if (s)he believes that being a computer programmer in ANY WAY correlates to being a good gamer, as the idiotic submission implies.


Unless, of course, the game is a puzzle game based around generating solutions to problems by arranging boolean logic gates in an increasingly complex series of patterns to command robots to perform difficult automated tasks.  Then, being a computer programmer might be totally relevant.

You know if, hypothetically, that's what the game under discussion was about.

OnlyM3: clyph

The trend over the past decade has been towards better graphics and dumbed-down gameplay.You've got to target the IQ of your audience.

Thank a teacher  Republican.

Is life and love not the hardest game of all time? I'm 32 years old and still stuck on level 1.

Shouldn't the hardest game to play be life, technically?
// no one has ever won, and the high score is in the lowest range of 3 digits..

I don't play games that become hard work. World of warcraft is a fine example.

dragonchild: I hope I don't give anyone heart attacks for breaking some mind-blowing news, but making a hard game isn't difficult at all.  If anything, it happens too often by accident.


Creating interesting difficult programming challenges, on the other hand, *is* difficult.

This game is interesting not so much as a game but as a thought puzzle for those interested in how software works.

If you're looking for modern games with similar gameplay concepts, check out SpaceChem (also on Steam), or there are a lot of Flash games with the same idea, like The Codex of Alchemical Engineering

NeuroticRocker: Is life and love not the hardest game of all time? I'm 32 years old and still stuck on level 1.


Life and Love has the worst farking pay to win bullshiat built in, its only hard if you don't have the money to advance to another level and if you lose your money you actually lose levels as fast or faster then you gained them.

and he went on to design electronic toys including the Nintendo Power Glove

Oh fark him. No seriously. fark him with aids laden rubberized penis with shards of glass embedded in it.

That piece of shiat was my only Christmas gift one year. The thing didn't work. What a scam that thing was.

No wonder his "game" is so hard. If it is anything like the Powerglove, it is a ass shiat gobbling broken piece of hippo dung.

No seriously. fark him.

I laughed at the image of the "sewer" level. The creatures who "didn't make it out" are all characters from M.U.L.E.
