Water Works
« on: November 25, 2009, 11:08:14 pm »
A physics based game where your job is to get the drops of water into the filter to be cleaned. Unfortunately your materials are limited, and the environments odd, leading to some unique puzzle madness! If you are having trouble on any level, just remember: All are Possible; Some are Tricky!

This game was inspired a lot by a game i saw my friend playing on his iPhone, and when i realized i could make a version in java, i was very excited!  It implements my old pinball physics engine, albeit with major updates and a fancy new object system that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :)

Wow this is awesome! Interesting and original idea you had :D

So far I only noticed one glitch, though: sometimes, when dragging the obstacles, they remain transparent when you release them. So water goes through it anyway. But I liked it so far altough I couldn't get past LV 6
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

That happens when 2 objects are too close to eachother.  You'll know when the ring turns red.  But yeah Level 6 is when it starts getting difficult :)

7 and 8.

9 was REALLY easy when I figured out how to time it right. Only needed 2 platforms.

6 was the first time I had to think though. Nice difficulty curve and creative puzzles.

Glad to test it for ya. =)

Yep! Took a bit of timing. Had to rotate the first and place the second one at the right time, but the drops just fell right in after that. =P

lol, i probably should make the extra platform bonus a lot greater than it is.  I think right now it might only be worth a second of bonus time O.O

Yeah... I never got any of the time bonuses... too busy thinking. =(

Still, if I played through again, I could get some so I'm not sure how you should balance that or if it even needs balancing.

Also, this one doesn't seems to slow down (I mean, freeze during half a second about every 10 seconds while playing)

This is an awesome game!  I'm stuck on lvl 8.
I found a glitch. Water can pass thru walls! If you put a funnel in/near a wall...
