Flipull is a clone of a Taito puzzle game of the same name (also known as Plotting) in which players control a blob holding a block. Each block has a pattern inside — either a square, a circle, a cross, or a triangle — and the player must match blocks of the same pattern in order to remove them. The objective is to remove a number of specified blocks per level given a time limit. There are 30 levels in total.

This game is known to work on GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows platforms.


This is a preview version, so there are missing graphics, sounds, and the odd bug here and there. Be warned.
