No Waste (FBF)

Posted in: Electric Shocktopus | May 27, 2016 | No Comments


This week for Feel Bad Friday, I had been planning on playing through 69F4 again — flipping that red switch finally.  But, as you’ll see in the video, that doesn’t quite pan out.

So instead, it’s No Waste, by A Random Player.  And oldie but goodie – this is a level from a simpler era.  Does that mean the level itself is easy?  You’ll have to watch to find out

 

A big thanks to A Random Player for sharing the level with us.  If you’d like to try it yourself, you can grab the code here. (If you dare!)

We’re back again – reaching some semblance of consistency perhaps in this weekly endeavor?  This week for Feel Bad Friday – I take on 69F4 by, who else, NealCruco.  Enjoy watching me squirm:

Hydrogen’s Mysterious Attraction

Posted in: Bond Breaker, Lesson Time! | May 16, 2016 | No Comments


One of the most common questions I’ve gotten about Bond Breaker is this: why in the world should Hydrogen attract protons? Something seems fishy, and I try to answer it once and for all in this video:

This is the second installment in my TestTubeGames Explains series (you learn about how magnetism is really just electricity here)

Bond Breaker on Greenlight

Posted in: Bond Breaker | May 13, 2016 | No Comments


Bond Breaker has been played over 250k times!  (Which, I’ll note, is 250 trillion nano-plays)  The web-version of the game has been quite well received, so I thought I’d try to bring it to PC/Mac!

All the joys of playing the game on your computer, with none of the issues with getting WebGL to work!

(It’d still be free, naturally)

I posted it up on Steam Greenlight to see how people would respond to the idea.  So far, I’ve gotten very positive feedback about it.  It’s a vote-based system… so if you want to see a downloadable version of Bond Breaker 2.0, you can give it a thumbs-up here.

A377 (Feel Bad Friday)

Posted in: Electric Shocktopus | May 13, 2016 | No Comments


Another week, another Feel Bad Friday — this time I take on a new level by NealCruco: A377.  It’s a level about shortcuts?  Or about the lack of shortcuts?  You’ll just have to watch to find out:

 

 

A big thank you to NealCruco for sharing this level — and also for keeping on me to keep recording these videos! 🙂

If you want to check out the original post for A377, you can find it here.  Good luck!

You only get one Jump Rope (FBF)

Posted in: Electric Shocktopus | May 6, 2016 | No Comments


Back with another Feel Bad Friday this week (Are we getting consistent again?  Who knows!)

This time I take on You only get one Jump Rope by A Random Player.  It’s an older creation – and was actually the inspiration for Random’s later level, Juggling.

 

If you want to try the level yourself, you can grab the code here.  A big thanks to A Random Player for sharing it with us!
