Post Free Game of the Week - Actually, a bunch

There's been a huge trend towards games based on using your mouse to draw walls recently, and they're all fairly fun. Also, my usual principle of rewarding innovation is pushed aside a bit since I've got no idea which was first.

The draw-your-own-platformer:

http://www.gamegecko.com/drawplay.php

Possibly the original, not actually a game in the usual sense:

http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/40255643/

The Ball dropping, incredible machines style game:

http://www.claxor.com/pages/play.php?id=6

And the lemmings clone:

http://www.miniclip.com/games/scribble/en/

Now don't complain about not having enough stuff to play with over the next week.

You limited it before, when I gave one midweek. Limit yourself too!

If I pick one of them (tentatively, Paintball), the rest are never going to be postable as they would be derivatives. This is the best solution, believe me.

I made him do a really good sled jump and then crash, but he didn't fall through space.

pretty much. I thought something that simple would be intuitive. my bad.

i mean, why do you need a roof in this game anyway? that's overdesign

Actually, I think all men have this disease. I only read video game instructions in the period of time between when I buy the game and when I can start playing it.

Right... if you don't draw things like a roof he'll fly straight through them instead of crashing.

I think LineRider is the original of this batch. It's good. I like to draw one line to put the rider into a spin, and then listen to The Postal Service as he slowly somersaults an endless white fall through space.

Nice.

I think the trouble with that game is that it is hard to make a level which is difficult without being impossible. Especially difficult in a way other than "ooh, the ball has to go uphill".

If you read all that bumph at the bottom the the screen it says something about how the downloadable version lets you draw curves and scale the screen etc

The more I watch that video, the more I'm convinced it was done with a proper animation program. Some of the flips just seem a little contrived when I see how easily my little guys fall off their sledge. This could just be jealousy mind...

to 'expand the area' you just scroll the screen with the hand tool

i think it's pretty much unlimited from stuff i have tried

according to that, [theoretically, almost] every man wants pussies so every man should be begging to get instructions....
