Maxwell's Demon
Posted by Ryan on 2 March 2013, 17:24 GMT


DemonWith all of the excitement and fuss over the upcoming calc, I would be remiss if we overlooked other areas of note within our wonderful calc community. As such, I am very pleased to feature Darl181's release of his puzzle / skill game, Maxwell's Demon for the 83/84+ series.

Conceptually derived from the classic thought experiment of the same name, Maxwell's Demon is a challenging romp through two-dimensional space that will challenge your forethought and patience. Your goal is to guide the different shades of balls to their corresponding sector on-screen by sliding gaps in the wall around with proper timing and care. What really sticks out about this game is the number of options added, allowing you to really tailor the game to your skill level and desired challenge. Want a faster game? More objects on screen to sort? More categories of objects to sort? Maxwell's Demon has you covered.

Make sure to check out the readme for an explanation of the options and controls (although the controls listed for the 4-type game appears to be incorrect). If you are up for a good challenge and love customizability, give the game a download!

lol, I saw that the screenshot was really wide and got really excited thinking it was a calcnet development. Then I read the article and was like, "Yay! Maxwell's is getting an update! :D" I dunno, just thought the screenshot was pretty funny....
