  The randoms buttons only show non official levels, the levels that are not locked and that you can play right now.
This allow to display all top rated levels while clicking again and again on the "TOP rated" button.
Matty 11 years ago
  The "Top Rated" button, maybe it should only show the real Top Rated levels in the game and not just random rated ones?

  It's an interesting idea, that would bring some additional challenge, but as you tell it, the infinte loop is possible. Strong problem.
Btw, I've tried black border but I don't like it that much blockoban black

  Can you make an option for levels to wrap around? So that blocks that fly off come back the other side :D Might have some problems such as the other side being blocked though... Or icy blocks continuously hitting each other... Would it be useful?
jp 11 years ago
  Very good idea, I will try it soon!
[edit] the pb is for the about 60/70 level thumbnails already cpatured :(
Asforien 11 years ago
  I thought of something... Normal blocks can have black outlines while icy blocks have white ones. The outlines seem thick enough to be distinguishable.

edit: or maybe white for normal and light blue/transparent for icy?

  I tried to put some ice on the square blocks. That would have been better, but that was hard to see the color differences between some blocks after this (red/pink). If you have some design skill, don't hesitate to try :) . I was not totally satisfied with the circle too ^_^
Asforien 11 years ago
  Everything used to be squares... now there's suddenly circle blocks, feels quite weird haha oO Not saying that it's bad!
jp 11 years ago
  Yep maybe, I thought about it but it was easier for me :) and it takes less place on the button panel, in case other tiles arrive later :)
I think it's more important that I implement the possibility to move the blocks and their modifiers after they are placed in the map. :)
Asforien 11 years ago
  Would it be better if the editor provided icy blocks in the 6 colors rather than as a modifier?
jp 11 years ago
  Hey! New kind of blocks! The icy blocks, play the "Icy block demo" level to understand how they behave.

  Like the new Game avatar JP! :D
jp 11 years ago
  Yep I like the music too, it's from the demo scene.
From chromag and dsc. I've just found his website and send a message to ask authorization. Hope he acepts.

  Matty, well it depends on the game, this one don't have a tooltip. But why not :)
The level comments could be a way to do so.

Trkzgr, there is no limit but I'm upset about this because it's very easy to create levels. We could be flooded. So I'm thinking about limitations. Example, newly registered users have to wait X days to upload a level. Or level upload is only authorized when you've completed X official levels. Etc...
Matty 11 years ago
  Is there a chance of getting the tip tool back? :D
Trkzgr 11 years ago
  burfy rox ^^ are we limited with an amount of level we can design ? i think we should be... think 100 user upload 2 level in a day :P
jp 11 years ago
  All the targets must be covered to complete the level, but you can have more boxes than targets.
Trkzgr 11 years ago
  do the amount of the boxes and the colored areas have to be equal ? i made a level with lots of of dotted area but 6 boxes and cant complete it :P
jp 11 years ago
  Actually you can cme back to the main page by pressing on the STOP button. But you're right, this would be better to include the sound on/off in the game page.
Matty 11 years ago
  Yes, JP sometimes when I want to play a level I press play and then there is noe coming back to the sound on/off button! :D
jp 11 years ago
  Matty there is already the sound on/off on first page, you mean you want it inside the game page ?

Yep undo would be great, but I wander if it would be too easy then to complete all levels. Not sure. Being able to memorize your step before you loose is maybe also aprt of the challenge ? Maybe only a one level undo ?

[edit] Great new official levels, congrats!
Matty 11 years ago
  Sound on and off down in the right/left corner would be nice! :D
Trkzgr 11 years ago
  undo option maybe ? ^^ can be useful i forget the moves i did when i do sumthing wrong :P
jp 11 years ago
  Game updated, I've added a new kind of tile, asticky tile.
Not sure if it is useful or not...
burfy 11 years ago
  Nice JP, thanks...

  sound on / off added (burfy's feedback).
16 official levels now. All levels are great. I must say I'm a big fan of Psychotronic's levels (thx Psycho). When a level is "only" accepted, it doesn't mean it will not be official one day, it's just I'm not sure for now.
