dead sticks

the engine failed

Click on the top of the stick to get started.

'dead sticks' is an abstract and minimalisitc puzzle game with physics based on verlet integration.

Play the full browser window version here.

I wanted to make a simple and abstract puzzle game after playing the mobile game Minimize. So i started this prototype based on verlet integration. After developing the game mechanic i found out the game play felt a lot like Cut the Rope, so i abandoned the idea for while, but later i wanted to finish the title screens.

Anyway if you think the idea is still okay let me know and maybe i will make some more levels.

'dead sticks' comes from 'dead stick landing' which means landing an aircraft when the engine broke down.

nice game, would be nice if it were longer, but the idea is uniqe and realy fun ^^

it would be great if a zoom function would be build in

thanx for the positive feedback. I’m planning on creating a longer version that could be released on some mobile appstore someday.

Sounds nice ^^ i would pay for it :3 i think on android it would be some more intuitive, but i think even there you need a zoom funktion. these displays are even mor smaler xD

Maybe i should also note that the click area is a little larger then the circles themselves, you can check it with your mouse on desktop by slowly going near the circle ;)

lol, youre right :D i tryed to hit the middlepoint every time xD
