Coign of Vantage

I came across intriguing flash game while catching up on some blog reading. Coign of Vantage is simplistic in its presentation and professional in its style of play.

You basically rotate a set of pixels in a 3D space using your mouse until they line up to make the picture in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

The game plays like a sane version of a Warioware gameófast paced, but soothing. (Itís a game that politely whispers that it should be a WiiWare or DSi title.)

The thing that impresses me the most is that it is only played with two clicks. Two puzzles are cleverly disguised as a calibration for the mouse range. Itís a perfect example of using the game to train a person to play it while also adapting and configuring itself to the playerís system.

It hovers near the territory of Flower. It may not be as expansive, but it comes close to its design philosophy.

  1. I made it to Image 26… not bad on a laptop touchpad…

  2. I didn’t get that far, but I was on a laptop in bed. So I have an excuse.

    Fun game, though.
