Post Free Game of the Week - Magnetism

Fairly interesting beast this one. You get the sense that he should have focussed on one game mechanism instead of two and maybe thirty great levels instead of a hundred okay ones, but the basic concept is sufficiently original for it to be the best game I've played in the past two weeks or so.

That is without a shadow of a doubt the best game I've played in the last 12 minutes.

Seriously, it is pretty cool - although too difficult for my puny brain.

Hey isn't that what "Free Game of the Week" means, roughly? Anyway, I tried dozens of games in the period and this was the only one that stuck. No pun intended.

Essentially. I spent all of last week looking for a good game, but only found mediocre ones, then on tuesday this week I found this one.
