Opposites Attract: Maglev

More UDKosity! Maglev is a capstone project for students at Guildhall SMU, and is a short comedy puzzle game about a robot with a love for a toaster - and toast, understandably - and some troublesome french-bots. Which is all style. The meat is its puzzle mechanics, based around the two forms of magnetism - red and blue [Are you sure about this? - Science Ed]. Use the red field and you're attracted to red and repelled from blue. Use the other, and the opposite happens. Also works for coloured energy beams, leading to entertaining destruction by beaming electricity arcs at your foes. It's like being a hypercute magneto for 20 minutes, basically. Its influences are a little obvious, perhaps - Portal, Wall-E, South Park and Monty Python - but they're all good influences, they pull it together into something with its own charm. And I'll forgive a lot for the wonderful surrealism of an Eiffel Tower floating in orbit. The only problem is that the game's only on rapidshare, in two .rar's you'll have to download separately. Still, if that sounds like too much effort, I recommend the trailer.

EDIT: Alternatively, you can find it on Guildhall's site for a direct download.

Well done, Students. Much better than was the main result out of my degree.
