orboxb - nice simple but hard flash puzzle game
« on: March 25, 2006, 05:14:51 PM »

Your goal is to guide your 'box' from start-point to end-point. The catch? You can only move in the four cardinal directions and you will only be stopped once striking an object. Don't worry, none of the other objects move or can hurt you, but that will hardly make your job any easier. As pure puzzle solving game with 30 levels, this one isn't the most innovative game you'll play this week, but it could very well be one of the most mind-bending.

quite nice! just use cursor keys to move.

im really enjoying this one - i don't generally love puzzle games but this one has a really nice balance of being able to "play" and experiment and a good balance of difficulty and not having to repeat annoying stuff when you fail.  plus it has the ethereal quality of being satisfying to interact with.

I must say i adore this game!
If you still haven't tried it, it's time for you to do it!
Right now, there's like 5 people in the irc channel playing it, and everybody's loving it!

This game has been all around the irc channel. So, i decided to make a post showing how interesting the irc channel is.
Everybody talks about it. It's like: you're talking about a forum's new feature, and somebody comes and says:

[26 Mar 06 07:14] * mouser * level 7 of orbox is cool
or
[26 Mar 06 07:48] * hamradio * stuck on 16
[26 Mar 06 22:33] * mouser * woot did 15
or even thigs like:
[26 Mar 06 22:34] * Moe_GONE * I haven't done it yet but I just FIGURED OUT 13
or, on a more negative approach:
[26 Mar 06 22:44] * jgpaiva * damn 19!!
[26 Mar 06 22:44] * Moe_GONE * damn 15
[26 Mar 06 22:50] * jgpaiva * how the $%!!#%$""&/))$# do you pass 19?? grr grr grr

This day, (26 March) was a big day for orboxb in DC, everyone was raving about it. But db got a few hilarious lines:
[26 Mar 06 22:38] * dbcch * this game is too easy
[26 Mar 06 22:38] * dbcch * i already beat level 1
[26 Mar 06 22:38] * dbcch * ;p
...
[26 Mar 06 22:38] * dbcch * really, i don't see how it will get very hard
[26 Mar 06 22:38] * dbcch * ;p
[26 Mar 06 22:38] * dbcch * i mmean, just move around until u get the exit
[26 Mar 06 22:42] * dbcch * easy
[26 Mar 06 22:43] * dbcch * 6
[26 Mar 06 22:43] * dbcch * i am so damn smart

Db was passing levels like a madman:
[26 Mar 06 22:48] * dbcch * easy shit
[26 Mar 06 22:48] * dbcch * 7

Then, he got stuck:
[26 Mar 06 22:49] * dbcch * i can't stop it
[26 Mar 06 22:49] * Moe_GONE * press space
[26 Mar 06 22:49] * Moe_GONE * restart level
[26 Mar 06 22:49] * dbcch * pfft
[26 Mar 06 22:49] * dbcch * they coulda told u that
[26 Mar 06 22:49] * dbcch * or put a link to restart
[26 Mar 06 22:49] * dbcch * stupid game
[26 Mar 06 22:49] * dbcch * idiot author
[26 Mar 06 22:49] * dbcch * ;p

And here's the hard part on orboxb:
[26 Mar 06 22:52] * dbcch * random paths don't work anymore
[26 Mar 06 22:52] * dbcch * fuck abunch of thinking

Everybody had other things to do:
[26 Mar 06 22:57] * mouser * damn more wasted horus
[26 Mar 06 22:57] * mouser * got to get back to work
[26 Mar 06 22:58] * Moe_GONE * no shit
[26 Mar 06 22:58] * Moe_GONE * Gotta read Freud.

Still, this game is just too addictive:
[26 Mar 06 22:58] * Moe_GONE * I'm on 17.
[26 Mar 06 23:16] * jgpaiva * i'm so close to cracking 19..

MoeRL reaches the highly traumatizing level 17:
[26 Mar 06 23:18] * Moe_GONE * NOOOOOOOOOOOOO
[26 Mar 06 23:18] * Moe_GONE * OMFG you should have seen me scream just now
[26 Mar 06 23:18] * Moe_GONE * I even TOUCHED the stone I was supposed to be at
[26 Mar 06 23:19] * Moe_GONE * but hit LEFT instead of down and flew off into space instead of to the sensor :)
[26 Mar 06 23:19] * Moe_GONE * OMFG

And after 2 hours, I still didn't pass 19:
[26 Mar 06 23:20] * jgpaiva * 19's solution is soooo big, that when i find part of the solution, i already forgot the other part

Db starts to understand this game isn't easy:
[26 Mar 06 23:30] * dbcch * i run around like a madman and let me subconcious solve them
[26 Mar 06 23:30] * dbcch * easiest way

MoeRL is unstopabble:
[26 Mar 06 23:42] * Moe_GONE * god damn
[26 Mar 06 23:42] * Moe_GONE * 21 sucks

A few interesting quotes:
[26 Mar 06 23:45] * dbcch * oh well, 13 is unbeatable.

[26 Mar 06 23:54] * Moe_GONE * holy fucking CRAP
[26 Mar 06 23:54] * Moe_GONE * 23 looks like DEATH itself

[26 Mar 06 23:55] * mouser * damn you guys are going fast

[27 Mar 06 00:04] * jgpaiva proclaims Moe_GONE as the official DonationConder.com Orbox Expert Player

[27 Mar 06 00:13] * Moe_GONE * you bastards
[27 Mar 06 00:13] * Moe_GONE * I have to finish Freud
[27 Mar 06 00:13] * Moe_GONE * still have more than 80 pages
[27 Mar 06 00:14] * Moe_GONE * I see an all-night coming, just because I got hooked on this game.

After a while...
[27 Mar 06 00:13] * mouser * i notice db has gotten very quiet
[27 Mar 06 00:13] * mouser * ROFL
[27 Mar 06 00:13] * Moe_GONE * lol
[27 Mar 06 00:13] * mouser * so much for being easy :)

Well... That's not even close to being all of it..
You'd better come to the irc channel, I bet you'll love it there!
