I've been working on simulated circle puzzles for a while now, and the promotion TomZ mentioned here seemed like the perfect excuse to move things to a web based app. I've added 4 puzzles so far each with 2 or 3 color schemes, including what I believe is the first simulation of Douglas Engle's Battle Gear online. I've loved it ever since I first saw it on Jaap's puzzle page, but was disappointed to see that he didn't have a version online, and neither of the actual puzzles I've gotten turn particularly well. Now I can finally play them without lockups.



The simulator is currently up here, so please give it a try and see if there are any bugs I've missed, and any feedback on the design would be great. The controls are all mouse based, just click on a disc and it will turn clockwise if the click is to the right of center or counter-clockwise if it's to the left.

I've got two more puzzles drawn up in CAD that just need to be added, the deeper cut Rashkey I showed an early simulator for here and a two layer Turnstile that should be... interesting.

Very nice! -

Great range to choose from - these are awesome - thank you! :D

Edit: wow more puzzles added already!

At the risk of exposing my ignorance the only gripe i have is that often i click too fast when spinning the circles and the whole page highlights - would it be possible to change how quickly clicks highlight the page or is it just something i need to deal with on my end?

Update - The deeper cut Rashkey is now playable. So far there's only a 2 color layout, as I haven't actually figured out how to solve that yet. Hopefully someone better at devising solutions will come up with one now that there's a more finished version than the one I posted a few months ago.

Hopefully everyone that's reading this thread is also trying out the puzzles, and if so please give me any feedback you have.

Thank you,

Eddie Lee

Bump! The circle puzzle simulator now has the final puzzles I want before I submit it to the blackberry app store, a 2 layer turnstile I'm calling the Professor Turnstile due to the edge's similarity to a 5x5 cube.

I would appreciate any feedback before I submit the app, please let me know what you think.
