I gotta get in on this.
I had a ton of fun on Van Berlo’s Chain. I’m sure there are alternate approaches that could save on the metrics, but I dig the overall feel of this design (uploaded externally 'cause 4MB gif):
I also really enjoyed the flow and symmetry of this Invisible Ink design. I later scored better on every metric, but this was just… aesthetically pleasant:
It’s funny, I love Zachtronics games, but usually I don’t get through them very fast – I get stuck in optimization. This was the first one where I just kinda let myself go a little bit – didn’t go for optimizing each solution as I went, just got each to a “nice” place and moved on. It was nice to not feel guilty about putting it down, for once. I want to go back and start targeting the histograms, though.
