TPCube - test your 3D imagination!
« on: July 25, 2006, 09:41:09 AM »
Hi everybody.

In this game what you have to do is to choose a cube that can be made out of a cube net shown. Cubes have different symbols on sides, sometimes they are arrows, so that you can say what direction they point, and sometimes they are just fully symmetrical shapes, so some problems are easy to solve, and some are really difficult.

You can save a series of test to a file, and send it to someone, so that you can solve exactly the same tests. After making some mistakes, you can return to these hard cubes and solve them again.

What inspired me to write this game was this book:
'Why Men Don't Listen And Women Can't Read Maps', Allan and Barbara Pease.

Full user's manual is included.

You can download the game here:
* TPCube.rar (28.92 kB - downloaded 1907 times.)

Some libraries might be needed to run it: Libs

Good luck, and remember that practice improves your brain's abilities.
Please post here any comments you have about my game!

TPReal.

... i got Unable to locate component CG32.DLL warning ...

I had the same problem while testing my prog Demina on a fresh machine ...
It has to do with CodeGuard ... I had disabled it before compiling the release version, but somehow it was still required.  :(
At the very end I don't remember if I had to manually edit the project file or if I simply changed some other configs and build again !
