Stencyl Jam 19: requeue

“requeue” by torcado.

“[Help] this robot friend get to the goal by resetting its command queue at the appropriate times!”

“requeue” drove my synapses crazy in the best possible way. Here you are in charge of manipulating a robot’s movement pattern, but your only possibility to do so is to interrupt it and thereby start over it’s chain of move commands. The symbols on the left part of the game’s interface show you exactly how the robot will behave. Plain arrow tiles indicate a movement to the shown direction, but there are also jump and falling tiles as well as simple idle command tiles.

While you cannot directly change the order of those tiles, you can add new ones to the command chain by running into them. There are even some special fields with surprising abilities like turning the order upside down. These elements in combination with the horrifically great puzzle and level design make “requeue” a captivating brain-teaser which will certainly fry your brain. [PLAY]
