The most interesting thing about Yoshio Ishi’s Cursor*10 games isn’t its multi-single-player conceit that sees you playing cooperatively with the ghosts of all of your previous nine lives, though it’s hard to deny that that is a wickedly mind-bending concept.
It’s that Ishi’s managed to counter-balance all of the would-be help from those failed attempts (reminding you where not to move your mouse) with increasingly difficult or coordinated actions as you progress futher up its levels that make even your mistakes not good enough mistakes.
Ishi’s just done the second in the series and I’ll be frank and say I might just not ever have the gumption to get past that four-switch floor, but still think 2nd will likely be one of the smartest Flash games of the year.
If this is your first exposure to Ishi, don’t miss his much older monochromatic set of more literally Neko (cat) games.
