Tangle

by The Number Guy - Mini LD 53 Entry

This is my first ever Ludum Dare entry, I thought I could make this to get ready for the big Ludum Dare 30 competition.

Everybody knows quantum computing is the future, and while we're not yet making games for quantum PCs, I'll let you play a (probably) wrong interpretation of quantum mechanics used in quantum computing.

Tangle is an improvisation of the properties of quantum bits, or qubits. Open the game and click "How to play" to learn more about... how to play the game.

Tangle should work in all major desktop web browsers because it uses only pure HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Will not work if your browser doesn't support CSS3 though.

Entangle them qubits and - have fun!

This looks interesting, but I'm really not sure what to do in the game.

Yeah, me too. Instructions needed.

I'm really sorry, I spent all the time making the game and didn't have time to finish the how-to. I hope I'll be able to add it in a few hours.

Just added the how-to. Click on "HOW TO PLAY" to read it.

Wow, interesting concept!! But even with the "How To Play" I'm still not quite sure how to play. Did I mention, interesting concept? I would love to see a little more "user friendly" version. I honestly want to play this concept!

Thanks a lot for your feedback! I'm happy there's at least someone who actually enjoys my first real game :)
I understand your confusion with the rules, I had to read about quantum physics for hours until I could picture how the game would actually look and work. I think I need to work on the state-changing algorithm, because now it's probably quite unpredictable for the average user. I hope the Reverse Tangle mode will be a little easier to understand. I'll write about my progress on it on Twitter @thenumberguy1. Again, thank you and any suggestions are always welcome :)

Kind of a confusing game but I included it in part 4 of my MiniLD 53 compilation video series, if you would want to check it out :) http://youtu.be/sE32NxL_fMg
