I apologize about the lack of pre-loader, but the software I am using now (I can't afford adobe's flash) doesn't allow you to add them. You might just have to wait with a black screen or whatever shows up while it's loading (it's only 500kb)

Anyway, this is Circular logic, a puzzle based on restriction endonucleases cleaving a plasmid. In this game you are given a list of lengths that are produced when a pair of scissors cuts a circle one or more times. You need to use this information to produce a possible map of the cleavage sites.

This was a challenging one to write, mainly due to the circular nature of the puzzle. Trying to force the computer to solve solutions using a non-linear array was really mind bending. On my pathetic PC I saw some slow down when a lot of scissors were on screen, if that happens make sure you set to a lower quality.

I should also mention that all the pretty photos used in the middle of the circle are all from www.freedigitalphotos.net , a nice resource.

So, please enjoy, and let me know if you finish it :)

It's fun for a little while. A little basic. It does feel like a problem out of a text book. It gets boring pretty quick, too.


it was an okay puzzle game, not all to complicated. the only problem I have is it seems like your reading a math problem from a text book.
