This is a game I made one month ago. When I saw the Mouse Control Game Compo, it reminded me of this game, so I decided to translate it, and then to submit it

So, it's named The Yellow Shape. The goal is to follow the (yellow) shapes which appear on the screen with your mouse, by clicking on a red circle at the beginning, and the reaching the green one.
Your time limit is shown by a depleting red bar. The faster you play, the more it is refilled.

There are also some bonuses, and a combo system : try to follow many shapes without any miss to score much more points. Up to 5 difficulty levels are available (some of them need to be unlocked, as well as some bonus options).

The highest score I have seen on this game is 1,073,720 in Expert mode (while my personal best is only about 300,000 )

The screenshots are from the French version, but don't worry, the game is completely in English (if I forgot to translate something, feel free to mail me). You can find the French version (la Trace Jaune) at :

So, that's it. Have fun !

212107 - ok for a first try?
I love the original concept, well done!

That was quite satisfying.

Although my score was 1.04671e+006... you might want to make that a bit more user friendly

Strange... Can you take a screenshot? I've never seen this bug before.
212107 is ok for a first try. But try the Expert mode once you have unlocked it

Very addicting game! I like the idea of this.This is cool. You have my vote for the next gotw. Unless something better comes up.

What's wrong with the download? Simply scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Free". Then wait for less than one minute. I know that it is annoying, but I didn't have any other choice right now. I will upload it somewhere else Saturday. Sorry...
Thanks to everyone for the comments

Fun short, simple game\

If you need a better upload host- get a GMail account, and use the googlepages option to host your files. Its completely free, only down when googles down (never), easy as heck

I think its a good game, definitely good fun for an hour or so but from what criteria are you given "Good" or "Excellent" or "OK"? I seemed to be getting them no matter how fast I completed each line.

Those are some Phat Beatz
Posted by Zoglu 4th March, 2008

^^ -> you are effectively given "ok", "good", then" great" or "excellent" depending on how fast you complete each line. But of course, the shortest shapes need to be completed faster than the longest.

Nick and Alonso Martin -> That's weird. I will try to do something, because that's a bit hard to read

Once again, thanks for your comments

It's pretty nice, but it's also very simple. I was bored after I unlocked hard mode to be honest.

Still quite nice.

Nicely made game. I like Arrow Run better though, but I guess that's just me.
