Cursors is an online collaborative game that uses your mouse to progress through challenging mazes.
The objective of Cursors is simple. All you have to do is move your mouse as your cursor draws a line towards a green square on the screen. It sounds easy, but it gets increasingly difficult as you progress through the game’s various levels. The game throws mazes, impossible-to-guess choices and other tricks that keep things fun and interesting. As you play, the game also takes over control of your mouse, so you navigate simply by moving your cursor through the various mazes. This is especially fun using a laptop trackpad, but it can be frustrating if you accidentally hit walls or the pink squares that send you back to the start every time you touch them.
The best part of Cursors is that its somewhat of a social game. When you start playing, the game tells you how many players are online at any given time. Everyone progresses through the same levels (at different times), and you can see the gameplay of other players as they move through each level. The ability to draw lines with your cursor mostly exists so that you can, if you want, show other users a clear path to the goal. Although there are no profiles or user names and every player looks, simply, like a mouse cursor, it’s still fun to watch how other people play. It’s a collaborative game, but it also feels good to beat everyone else as you go along. There are also some levels that require collaboration. It’s an awesome game.
