Planarity
Starbuck [20:40] Comments: 6 []
 

I really do wish I didn't stumble across these can't-let-it-beat-me puzzle webgames.

It's all about planar graph theory, apparently. Grab hold of those vertices and pull on those nodes so that the graph can be embedded in a plane, i.e. with no interconnecting lines overlapping.

Well I enjoy pulling on a node as much as the next man, but this thing's driving me round the bend (or the next collection of short edges separated by obtuse angles, perhaps)...

Clever, but not very addictive, is it? :-)

Dunno, my addictive personality seems to find most things a bit too compelling. Webgames, drink, deodorant application... the list is endless.

It might not have many bells and whistles - OK, it might not have any bells and whistles - but I just can't help shifting those nodes.

Maybe I don't get enough mental stimulation the rest of my time...

Vex, although I'm wary of downloading something on the say-so of a blog Comment, especially one written by what appears to be a previous incarnation of myself (!), a bit of research leads me to suspect that this will be a copy of Stair Dismount.

I may well check it out further. Sometime. (There's a backlog of downloaded freeware games sitting unexecuted at the moment).

And 3rdDaughter, I know, it's a git!

I've stumbled across your blog when I done some math game research in Google. You're doing a pretty nice job
here, keep up the good work :-)
