This is actually my second score. I didn't quite understand the point the first round.

Illustrator has done to my eyeballing what spellchecker has done to my spelling.

I have a really shitty old ball mouse on this machine, and I kept getting interrupted by customers, so my score was terrible, but mostly . . . it needs rules.  The Help/About link isn't working.  When I'm asked to find the midpoint of a "line segment" that's actually two line segments, do I also have to straighten them to make one line segment?  I think I do.

I did it twice, and my better score was an error of 7 flat.  I did great with the parallelograms and equidistances the first time but horrible with the midpoints, and I effed up the parallelograms and equidistances the second time.  :lol:

My wireless mouse occasionally loses the connection, and when it does, the game thinks I'm choosing a point.

It's sort of a learn-by-error system, apparently. These graphics people prefer that to typing out real instructions. It shows the perfect solution in green at the end of each move, so I assume that's what it wants the player to mimic.

It shows what it thinks is a perfect solution.

:harumph:

Yeah. Case in point:



I have a hard time visualizing those circles.

Out of curiosity, I opened it in Illustrator and used the Blend tool, shown in magenta. That's the way my mind sees the center.

Yeah, I didn't think that was clear. Toss in some color-blindness, and it makes absolutely no sense.

Nevermind  :P

I got 5.3.  The last round killed me.
Cause you're so beautiful
Like a tree
Or a high-class prostitute
You're so beautiful
Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job
