    limited to 4 colors? what moron came up with a rule like that?

    Anyway, this does look promising. Will give it a try.

    the color limitation is a tradition, check Alex The Aligator 4 to see how great some people use 4 colors. (if not all GB library)

    To try and foster some creativity instead of provoking an onslaught of DS Motion-supporting snake clones?

    This game is absolutely awesome. And yes, the 4 colors thing is a great idea. I find it way more possible to be creative when being so limited. This "Level ?" stage though...says "This level is possible. This is not the end", got a 0x0 draw ability, and they're just stuck there. I have no idea how to do this stage.

    this is really awesome, but jesus christ you're allocated the bare minimum amount of.. ink to complete levels.

    I'm on level 4 and I've been trying over and over to get my line perfect..

    "Level ?" must be a joke... or really deep. Or something. I turned it off earlier, so had to go through the first 12 stages again, but I wanna know if there really is a way to get through it. arrg

    Well I found a glitch. Try rapidly tapping jump and alternating the shoulder buttons.

    To "understand" level ?, just rotate the DS ~45° counter-clockwise, and...

    that game has potential! it's very hard.. but with some thought put into more levels, it could be even better. but its great as it is too

    I believe this is the last level anyway, because the black blob's flag is black, and since one cant see it it has to be in an black area, where the black blob can'g go. Right? Same goes for the white blob.

    That's so not the answer. It's a really nice optical illusion [​IMG]
