Timewaster: Faultline

Proving there’s still some life in the puzzle platform genre comes this quiet little number, Faultline. It wouldn’t have looked out of place at the turn of the 90s, but uses an interesting trick to keep the action fresh. It’s free, and available to play right from your browser.

In Faultline, you control a little robot-thing, who can utilize special points in the environment and drag them together with its flying hands, folding space and creating new platforms to navigate. This allows you to scale otherwise impossible heights, create holes to move through and more. The puzzles get harder, and eventually I got stuck… but I’m sure with more persistence I’ll crack it.

Play Faultline here, which requires the Flash plug-in.
