Space Trap

It's another free puzzle game. This is right up there with Pakoon III.

But, every time you start the game you have to start at level 1, right?

It did a couple days ago when I posted that.

With no save feature, it's probably not worth a dollar. Great free game though.

It uses a strange control them, where you have to tap the block next to your figure in the direction where you wanna go. This seems even worse than the control method of Mouse House. There you can touch anywhere relative to your mouse, here you have to touch the block next to you. Don't touch a block three blocks away in the same direction - this won't work...

Every dev should use a control scheme like in Mouse About or Bomberman, when creating such a puzzler.

I haven't tried the tap controls. tilt works pretty well
