Flywrench


Flywrench is a game about piloting an abstract morphing bird-spaceship through a complex web of colored lines. Each maneuver that Flywrench performs, such as flapping like a bird, or tumbling like a baton, changes its color. Match the ship's color with a shape's to pass through it, hit an obstacle as the wrong color and fail. The pace is unrelenting and in a blink the challenge resets without penalty. Flywrench is accompanied by an electronic music soundtrack curated by the world famous, Daedelus.



Flywrench was featured in the New Museum's Younger Than Jesus exhibition in 2009, E3 in 2010, an older version of Flywrench has been available online at messhof.com

"It’s a tricky game of maneuvering along obstacle courses, which is me very crudely reducing it because there’s no easy comparison e.g. “it’s like Kuru Kuru Kururin or Roundabout but not spinning and more a platformer but without platforms or Swift*Stitch with flopping and colours.” [...] so, those obstacle courses: along with moving, you can Flap to pop your flywrench (that’s your doodad) up a bit and Roll to hurl it. Each move turns the flywrench a different colour, which you need to do to pass colour-coded gates. So you try to dodge obstacles while also trying to be the right colour when needed – which obviously isn’t necessarily a colour that’s convenient for you at the time." - Alice O'Connor, RockPaperShotgun
