Hello world! :) This is my first flash game. Feedback welcome--if not for this one, then the next one. :)

Click on an intersection to rotate the ice blocks clockwise; Shift-click to rotate the ice blocks counter-clockwise.

Connect 3 or more ice blocks of the same color to clear them.

New ice blocks grow periodically off of the old ones (see the timer in the bottom right). If the Ice-9 grows _past_ the edge, all is lost!

Note that black ice blocks are immobile and can not be destroyed.

but I found the block movement controls so confusing and difficult that I gave up. You'd have been far better off going with drag and drop with a few rules as to where you can and can't drop. Yes, I know I'm opening myself to charges of idiocy - the old if you'd only spend two minutes figuring it out you'd see it works -- but my advice is: a players first experience with a game oughn't be frustration with such a basic element as control. Not to be a dick or anything, but its a crucial design principle.

I appreciate the feedback. I don't want to change the movement mechanic with this (maybe next version), but I'll keep my wheels spinning for a way to make the same mechanic more intuitive. :)
