Electromagnetic Adventures (EMA) is a short, coffee-break calibre game written in the space of 24 consecutive hours. It features nine levels of increasing difficulty, with fun, intuitive gameplay.

EM Adventures is about manipulating a weightless electromagnet (the mouse) capable of creating a positive or negative charge, thus either pulling or pushing nearby objects with a force relative to the distance to the object, as well as the object's mass.

The objective of the game is to use your electromagnet to push and pull iron and gold balls from different parts of each level into their respective 'Iron Zone' and 'Gold Zone'. However, this seemingly simple task is made difficult by the restriction that iron and gold balls may not touch. Furthermore, other obstacles such as burning balls and burning barriers also threaten to destroy any iron or gold balls that touch them.
Instructions on play are included in the form of an incremental in-game 'tutorial', and are simple enough to pick up on for the beginner. Additionally, you'll be able to tell when you've beaten all of the levels when the game unceremoniously segfaults.
A machine made in the last decade.

After level 8 the game froze

Sadly, being a 24-hour game, there wasn't time to add an end condition to the game. After completing all of the levels the game will segfault. Unfortunately this varies in nastiness to system, so I'll see about patching this. Thanks for playing!
