Developer hyperparticle has released Nodulus, a new open source puzzle game. Players looking to test their puzzle solving skills can do so against the game’s current set of 20 levels. The goal of each level is to move planks from node to node until a connection is made to the final (green) node. This is done by rotating nodes that have a plank attached in order to transfer the plank from one node to the next until it reaches its destination. As more planks are added to the board and plank sizes change, the game gets more and more challenging. Nodulus does not offer any sort of in game tutorial, but the game starts off simple enough so that users can figure out how to play it as they go.
Those looking to dig a little deeper into the game’s inner workings and perhaps contribute to its development can find the game on GitHub. Nodulus is developed using Unity and the game’s scripts are written in C#.
Nodulus is free, and does not contain any ads or in app purchases. At only 20 levels, it might not be the most content rich puzzle game out there, but if the development community embraces it, expect to see more levels, features, and perhaps even different variants of the game pop up in the future. Here is an excerpt from the game’s Google Play description and an official trailer with more information:
