Hi NG!
[EDIT: Thanks everyone, you are way to kind, my first green ever!]
[EDIT II: Ehh, blue, you made my day. Thanks again!]

Thought I would share my latest game. The game is a rewrite of my old game Untangle 1.2. There is however quite a lot of changes. Let me see if I can list them all..

1: Updated gameplay with several new game elements and challenges.
2: The game now have a challenge mode such that levels can be played several times.
3: In game achievements.
4: Simple story line (Feedback on this would be great)
5: Graphical update (OMG it's pretty)
6: Performance improvements
7: Better sounds and music
8: Fullscreen button (Does that work here?)
9: All the things I forgot

Hope you like it! I made as much, as I could, of the game public for everybody.

[Edit - Time for some strategy]
My personal way of solving the levels are:

1: Drag one peg to the corner of the playing field
2: Then drag the pegs connected to the original peg such that no lines to the original peg overlaps.
3: Repeat step 2 for the pegs we just moved until the level is solved.
4: If the level have slots, solve untangle the lines first. Then try to fit them into slots.
5: In level with locked pegs you want to choose one of the locked pecks as your starting position.

I am rather success full with the above strategy but I might be to experienced with the gameplay to really be the best to outline strategy. Anybody else care to try?

Last but not least, I am considering making an extended version of the game with a level editor such that you can make challenges for each other. Would you like something like this?

nice music and graphics very addicting, and artwork is very refreshing and crisp.

Ive seen this before

not this specific game but this concept, its been done before. Oh well, its still more original than most of the games at ng, and the artwork was all well done. And a level editor is always a good thing, i say go for it!

A great idea

Untangle Deluxe is just one of those games that can be so addicting, but can be left unrewarded after it is beaten. Puzzle games involving pegs and their placement have always been fun for me, one in particular "X-raye". However the format and mood of the game doesn't quite fit. Perhaps untangling Christmas lights in a box would fit the bill better.
I could go on, but dinner calls, and I've REALLY gotta use the john.
Perhaps Tweezy will finish his review another time.
