I’d forgotten all about Cursor * 10, a brilliant game from Nekogames which redefines the basic view of multi-player. To get ahead, you must co-operate … with yourself.
It may appear simplistic but the Cursor * 10 gameplay had me enthralled through multiple plays, trying to work out the best way to make it to the top.
I’m pleased to see that there is now a new set of puzzles: Cursor * 10 2nd Session.
Although there is scoring, that’s the wrong thing to focus on – the goal is to make it to the 16th level. In order to solve the puzzle, you have to help future instances of yourself get up the stairs. I have to admit that the air turned blue on floor six when I cursed my past-self for snatching the key that I needed – how rude!
I still think that this is a very clever new look at basic gameplay and I’d love to see further twists on this concept. Now I just have to work out how my future-self can help the previous instances of myself to get that high score…
