Skears DX

Author Comments

This is a remake of the original Skears (aka 'rol-ovir 2').

Just touch the purple skears whilst avoiding red ones.

After finishing the game, you can try to complete it without failing to become an 'Official Skears DX Master'. You'll then be able to e-mail me with a secret subject line to be included in the credits.

As always, I appreciate any reviews and hope you enjoy the game. :)

Note: in my response to Coop's review, I mention the year 2008.
I meant to say 2009. Sorry for that.

Glad you like it.

Stay funky.


Another great game from the masterpiecemaking couple creators. Great concept, as usual, and with nice simple gameplay and good graphics. This is yet another great timewaster for when days move slowly, keep up the great work!


AcidDimensions responds:

Glad you've enjoyed the whole series.

nicely done

i reather liked it. after the first level i thought it looked pretty crappy. but then you threw in the red cubes, and have a diversity of movements that you had to keep up with.

so i found the wide variety in just a few levels rather entertaining. it seemed a little week graphically. but maybe that suited it the best. some musical acompanyment would have been nice too.

i liked it until the last level. which was far to frustrating. it was really long, and all you had to do was get a good rhythem going. i could make it to the part were it alternated red and purple at increasing speeds, but after a few seconds it became random flailing because it moved too fast.

overall though, i enjoyed it. would have been nice to see a few other shapes or squares that did things to,

AcidDimensions responds:

Glad you enjoyed it!

I'm surprised you complain about that section - I found the ending far easier than the giant purple box right at the start - I tried to put the more difficult bit at the start of the final level to cut down on having to replay sections. You probably keep getting hit by the very last red skear... that's the only one I'd say comes really quickly.

More shapes... like circles?

Thanks for the review.


Very good, With sounds, music and more levels and maybe tweak the graffics up I can see this getting on the front page with awards :D good game.

AcidDimensions responds:

Hopefully. ;-)

Simple and addictive

This game is quite a simple concept, but it is really enthralling. Some of the movement patterns on the blocks is really annoying, as you move the mouse to where they were and by that point, they've moved. sometimes it's infuriating.

A great game, but it could really have done with some sound, as it's the type of game that doesn't look complete without the occasional annoying ping :P

I note that this was submitted back in 2003 - any plans to make a newer version of this game, or will you just try something different?

Glad you liked!

Yeah - you need to anticipate movements and move to where they're going!

Skears 2 will be released in March 2009, by which time I'll have made 100 Non-Skears-related Games. (The NSG series). It's been in development for a while, and I reckon I could already get an award with it. But I'm aiming for top 50. ;-)

Mini Skears 3/4 do have sound, though the implementation leaves something to be desired. I'll be using variations of the same theme tune, but.... changed and with more interaction.

Thanks for the review!
