Planarity game is fun in a Flash
A deceptively simple productivity enhancer has just been released on the Web, in the form of a game that's entirely programmed in Flash.

Planarity starts out with an easy puzzle (an example is shown at left). There are only six interconnected points on a plane. You must "arrange the vertices such that no edges overlap." (In plain English, you drag the points around on your screen until none of the interconnecting lines cross each other.) Once you've done that, things get interesting. The next puzzle has 10 points, and so forth.

The game pieces are smooth and responsive, because no screen updates are needed when you make a move. Everything executes within your browser. The project is a creation of John Tantalo, a Case Western Reserve University student.
