gPlanarity

July 12, 2008

Though I’m not great at them, I enjoy playing logic/puzzle games. While browsing the “Games and Amusement (universe)” repositories I recently discovered gPlanarity, a free software game licensed under the GNU GPL. Like any logic game of quality, it requires patience and some critical thought – in this case, visual spatialization. Nodes are connected to each other in a tangled mess and your task is to “simply” untangle that mess. I’m getting the hang of it but my wife amazes me. She’s chugging along – currently working on level 54…

A quick sudo apt-get install gplanarity on Debian/Debian-based systems (e.g. gNewSense, Ubuntu) will provide your brain with hours of pain fun.
