Just so you know, cowhead is broek. It says the optimal solution for this one map I just played was 72 moves and I got it in 55. My score (out of a maximum of 1000) was 1309.

I guess I'm just that awesome.

6x6, by the way.


edit:

just played a 7x7, max is 98, I did it in 74, and my score was 1324/1000. :P

Looks quite good. Only suggestion is not to strobe the mouse button to show a press, as it looks like you're supposed to repeatedly click the button, when you're only supposed to hold it down.

Other than that, it's nice. Makes things very obvious.

Cowhead is not broken. The word "Optimal" should have been replaced with "Typical", but I just never did.

Also, I have decided to go back and fix(read re-do) Cowhead after I'm done with Honeycomb. The scoring mechanism is unfriendly in that to get a good score you need to pay attention to which direction you are rotating, which distracts from the core goal of the game. I mean, really, wouldn't most people rather click five times quickly than remember to swap rotation and then click once? I'm going to switch to a time based score(a la minesweeper).


I think you're right about the strobing mouse button, john, but I think I may go with an animated or strobing arrow pointing at the button. I'll experiment a bit and see how it turns out.
