The Electric Shocktopus

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Our little Cephalopod has a trick up one of his eight sleeves: he can change his electric charge at will. Zoom across electric fields, twist through magnets, and charge past one peril after another.

Never has the Right-Hand-Rule involved so many tentacles.

The browser version includes the first 15 levels of the game, which showcase the Electric and Magnetic Fields. It also comes with the Level Editor, so you can make and share any number of levels you'd like. To see videos of me foolishly attempting near-impossible player-built levels, go here: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YwU13-5SkA&list=PL5hYbg7tbylkdq71UREUYYEflTYf-mH9e)

If you're looking for the full version of the game -- which includes such rad science as conductors, currents, flipped magnetic fields, switches, and heat-seeking missiles -- you can grab it on Steam here (http://store.steampowered.com/app/521300/The_Electric_Shocktopus/)

The Electric Shocktopus was created by Andy Hall of TestTubeGames. The music was made by Brian Allen Holmes, and the SFX were handcrafted by Kevin Notar.
