Microtone Makes My Brain Hurt So, So Good

on January 14, 2012 3:30 PM

Independent developer Increpare is known for making games that are as fun as they are challenging, and his newest production, Microtone, is no different. The Flash game is a simplistic looking puzzler where as a nondescript flat square you have to collect equally non-unique pieces on a three-dimensional space.

The premise is simple, but the execution is masterful; using the mouse you’ll have to rotate and alter each playspace to collect all six pieces and progress through the level. An idea like this makes me insanely jealous of Increpare; I would never have the creativity, smarts, and ambition to take such a standard puzzle archetype and turn it into an experience that could make my brain explode.

Play it here, and if you want to take it to go, download it for iOS devices as well.
