Errro 2: Outer Space offers 2 distinct game modes for you to try.

The self-titled mode offers 100 challenging puzzle levels. Levels begin fairly easy and gradually introduce each of the game's various objects and gameplay mechanics.

The brand-new "Darkslide" mode places you on a multi-screen map that constantly scrolls. At the same time, the map is always becoming darker. You must not only keep up with the pace of the scroll, but also keep collecting stars to make the level brighter.

Errro 2: Outer Space offers a number of interesting game mechanics including screen-wrapping (think Pac-Man), world rotation, and even Gravity Bombs. Put all of your tools together to advance through all of the levels in the game!

In addition, the game ships with a simple yet powerful level editor. In a matter of minutes you can create, test and upload your own custom creations for everyone else to try!

Errro 2 includes a DLC system that will let you quickly browse for new levels and download them in seconds. Once you have completed the original levels, you can continue to find new DLC levels to challenge your skills.

You will also discover a new Challenges system in Errro 2: Outer Space. The challenges function much the same way as "achievements." Every level presents you with a series of challenges to complete. Some you will complete with ease, but others will require you to approach the level in entirely new ways!

Theatre Mode allows you to save and watch replays of levels you have completed. After you have perilously sidestepped the spikes and the pitfalls to finish the level barely on time, you can sit back and watch it all over again in to see all of the cool moves you made!

Also of note, the game capitalizes on the replay engine to provide an in-depth set of popup-video style video tutorials. Instead of merely reading instructions on what object does what, you can witness firsthand how they function before trying them out for yourself. Plus, each of the puzzle levels gives you the option of viewing a brief but useful video hint in case you become hopelessly stuck on a puzzle level.

Wrapping up, Errro 2 comes with an array of sound effects, and with over 20 minutes of music you won't have to hear the same loop over and over. You can toggle these settings among others (such as complete keyboard / gamepad / joystick customization) in the preferences menu.

Thanks for taking the time to take a look at my game. I hope you find it challenging and enjoyable. If you have any questions or problems, leave a comment and I'll help as best as I can.

Dependencies Note: If you plan to run the source version, you will need python (2.6 is best), pygame, and pyopengl installed.

In Ubuntu, you can install pygame and pyopengl via the following 2 commands:

sudo apt-get install python-pygame
