Description

The basic goal of each level in the game is to arrange scattered points on a grid into a smaller, more compactly arranged square and move the entire square of points into a goal zone. The points are shuffled and nudged by pressing against them with the edges of a surrounding rectangle of varying size, controlled by the player's keyboard.

Following student protests in London, this game was released making what would otherwise be an abstract puzzle-game hit home with political baggage. The way the game is skinned has the player-controlled rectangle being a cordon of riot police, and the points they are rounding up are student protesters. Between each level a leering policeman cruelly taunts the protesters.
