Folder Mania

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The Folders have gone Mad. Your mission is to catch as many folders as you can. You need to get at least 3
adjacent folders of the same color to collect them. At start you can only reach 3 folders. Level up and increase your
range or buy extra time. You have to be fast as the clock is working aginst you. There are bonus
clocks availalbe in Game. You can match the clocks with each color. Are you skilled enough to defeat the folders in
this nice free puzzle game.

There are already several hundred gameplays.
Can you specify the problem?

Fun but could use a shuffle option. Otherwise you're stuck with 50 seconds left and no moves.

snakep responds:

You can combine the clocks too with folders. You can connect all adjecent folders of the same colour (not only horizontal or vertical).

You hardly have no possible moves left but it can happen.

Shuffle option is a very good idea.


It is fun, but too easy for me. Second time playing, made 12th highest score of all time. Third time, made 2nd highest of all time. And the only reason I didn't get first was because I have ADHD and was getting very bored, to the point I was playing something else while playing this game; until I heard I was about to run out of time. Also, I haven't found any scenario where three folders wouldn't connect. I did not even read the instructions beyond match three. I figured out how to play on my first go, and it was a sad run. Just get pissed at how, if I "go" over a different color, it drops the whole link even if I didn't let off the mouse button; needs to be able to resume from where the last combo was left off.

thanks for your feedback.

I wanted to make it as playable as possible and maybe your right its too easy at start. If you play a bit longer it becomes quite challenging.
You will have to form chains where you get extra points like a chain with 10,15,20 elements to make it.


It's cool and all only that the mechanics of the game make it unplayable. I get stuck all the time cause there's no 3 folders to connect. You have to make the game wipe the screen if there are no moves possible or make it always provide at least one viable solution. Plan the game before you make it, dude.

snakep responds:


you can also use the clocks to form at least a chain with 3 items. You can for the chains horizontal, vertical and diagonal. You can form chain with adjacent folders of the same color, this means you can form triangles and so on.

There is hardly a situation where you cannot connect at least 3. Even those can be avoided by the player if he picks the chains smart!

You can level up and your range will increase, so you can pick up 4 items per turn and so on

Game is fun & addictive, upgrading VS time is cool..
On the other hand; the game is too easy and could use some kind of instant loss possibility.

snakep responds:


thanks for the feedback.

I will consider your proposals for a possible Folder Mania 2.
