Description
Liberate the Meatballs from their Saucy Prison. Loop around each meatball to free it. The noodle moves strangely, but you'll get the hang of it. Think like a Noodle and you'll be fine.

How to Play
Mouse, Arrow Keys / WASD - Twist like a Noodle
SpaceBar - Reverse your tracks, probably useless

Tips
Think & Move in diagonals - not straight lines.
Fast speeds will shock the Goat.
Insane speeds will blow her Mind.

Installation Instructions
Lightweight Install. Unzip and run "Noodle_Sound.exe". If that fails, run "Noodle_NoSound.exe". If the game still fails to run, install Visual Basic 6.0 SP5 Runtime Installation Pack and try again.

Technologies Used
MS Visual Basic 6.0 - you read that correctly.
Homegrown Framework for Graphics and Sound.

Fun Facts
Last year, Jim failed to complete the mighty pants.

Jim did all the voice work for Noodle.

The meat background is actually a repeated picture of tomato sauce. I'm not sure how things went so wrong. I'm also unsure how the digitized noodle wound up looking like a maggot.

Jim's Corner
This is the greatest game ever made.
Disclaimer: I made this game.

Sightings
Game Shark - The Indies
"the risk is zero because the game is free and doesn't seem to have any noticeable bugs"

HudelNudel.at
a swedish site about pasta links to Noodle... awesome.

IndieGamer Forums
I created a posting in the forums about Noodle. Reaction not good. i.e. "keyboard controls felt like one's hand will break soon"

History
v2.3  Improved the graphics. Added Mouse & XBOX 360 Gamepad support

v2.0  After the Jam, I spent 3 days tweaking things. Major tweaks included the ability to hold keys (thank goodness), time goals for each level, and integrating voices and Anthony's music.

v1.0  Download Original TOJam Version
