In year 2XXX, there is a rumor of a super computer called 'The Babel' that can grant you any wish if you get to its deepest core. You take a role of one of the most intelligent hackers with yourown hacking tool called "DotPLUS" that turn any security system into just a simple series of mathematics.  However, breaking into the core of The Babel will be more difficult that you could imagine.

How deep could you go? Will you be able to get into the core of The Babel?

  Left Mouse          -  Decide/Select Block
  Right Mouse        -  Cancel/ Restart Block Selection
  Mouse wheel up  -  Temporary fasten the blocks speed/Start the explosion

How To Play

  -  Clicking on blocks will add the block value to 'Current Sum'
  -  Match 'Current Sum' to the 'Target Sum' and all the selected blocks will be ready to explode
  -  Before the blocks explode, if you can form another group that makes 'Current Sum' matches the 'Target Sum', you'll start a 'Chain Combo'
  -  Once all the blocks are exploded, the new target sum will be releftsented.
  -  Once any blocks touch the top, you have 5 seconds to eliminate the blocks to get yourself out of this danger situation. Failing to do so will result in game over.


  -  If you want to play in fullscreen mode, open display.ini with a text editor and change the number to 1

  -  The more number of blocks used to match the sum, the higher the score you'll gain. So save the longest combination for a higher chain would be a better choice.

  -  Utilize "0" blocks wisely. They add nothing to the sum but they increase the number of blocks used , which mean higher score!  However, not using them might fill your screen with a useless 0 and give you a game over :O



There is no ending yet though so it's pretty much just an arcade/endless mode. I'm planning on working more on this and turn it into a commercial project.  But fmod is preventing me from doing so :'(   I'll make all the se and bgm original later. Right now it's more like an idea experiment prototype etc XD

This looks really polished!  I watched the you tube video and that made me wonder:  Hima, what are you using to record your app/sounds into movie?  I would like to do that I think as a way to demo a project for people w/o them having to download first in case they just wanna take a quick glance or in case they don't have the OS or setup etc and still wanna see my game. 

I tried downloading your game but that file sharing site keeps timing out on the download for me.  Will try again later.

Thanks HybridMind! If you're having trouble downloading from mediafire, try download it from this link instead


As for the recording, I use Camtasia Studio 3. It was shareware but now that they've reached version 5 or something, they've turned version 3 to freeware.  It's pretty good and very easy to use as well :) After I record it, I then export it to .avi file, and then manage the movie with Window Movie Maker ( the fade in and fade out effect )

Haven't had a chance to boot a native Windows yet, but I saw the video on YouTube. Very polished!! Can't wait to play it to higher numbers,  Too bad Ruby is not allowed on the iPhone, looks like it would work very well.

Yeah I think it'll work very well with iphone too.  But I've heard that game development on iphone is pretty expensive... :'(

Well access to the AppStore is 99$ per year (I'm just waiting for Apple to call me for tax details -_-), which is managable. I'll try to get C++ Gosu ported and then port some Ruby games over to C++, I can report back to you how it works for me then ;)

Took the liberty to attach a screenshot while restoring some forum attachments. This will enable the game to show up in the "Project of the Day" rotation once it's back :)
