Here is HEXFOLD, a web-based puzzle game inspired by the puzzle toy Cool Circuits.  For some background, see my post analyzing Cool Circuits, and the one describing how to extend Cool Circuits to a hexagonal board.

Level 7: "Lucid Sitar"
TL;DR: The object of the game is to place the pieces on the board to create a loop, using every piece and obeying certain constraints that are different for each level.  I made 36 levels (the 37th and final one is randomly generated) which more or less increase in difficulty from hand-holding tutorial to absurdly hard.

I should warn you, this isn't an easy, kid game like Robot Quest or a simple, casual game like Logoplex.  Oh, sure, it starts out easy enough.  But that doesn't last.

If you give it a try, please provide feedback in the comments below.

Before you ask: the level names are just arbitrary adjective-noun combinations.  I generated a bunch using The Sillifier, and picked out the ones that amused me.


It's also available as a Chome App:
