Help Yourself

I’m not one from playing games usually but I found myself surprisingly addicted to this ingenious little flash puzzle:

Japanese Flash Game

It works on the principle that you have to work with yourself to be able to reach the top level (floor) by replaying your cursor path each time the clock runs out and hence you help yourself along the way (have a go to see what I mean). How long does it take you to reach the 16th floor?! [via]

I’ve also always liked the look of Portal, a rather sophisticated teleportation game, based on the Half-Life engine praised for its unique gameplay and dark, deadpan humor. Somehow these sort of games appeal to me more than the usual killing fields in first-person shooters but then again there is something rather cathartic about them 😉
