It's been a long time since I've been so mesmerized by a game. This is very sweet.

I need to ask a question. I don't know how to play Krank. It looks lovely but where are the instructions?

Help can be found on the webpage.

It explains what each object is, how it works, and what the objectives of the game are.

Hallelujah! Just found it. I downloaded version 6. I found the info by Clicking on Krank 0.7 that's on the screen that popped up after I hit post review. Thank you! It's a really pleasant little game! Mary

No documentation, screen artifacts (scoreboard and some of the balls), cranks up the processor and heats up the CPU on my G5 iMac.

Looks nice and sounds nice, but not ready for prime time.

It's really simple, but a load of fun during math class!

Thanks.

I actually did that - but this case was the very first time an app would crash on me!

I didn't have any crashes on my powerbook w/10.4.9.

But, it is...weird. Some documentation would help immensely. The object appears to be to move the cursor around, which causes a small cluster of balls to follow you. You use that cluster of balls to knock smaller balls into larger balls. They get stuck together, explode (for some reason), and then you advance to the next level.

I only got that far by getting lucky, and I almost gave up before getting that far. Again, no docs that I could see.

It's more like a surrealist or expressionist concept of a game, than an actual game.

The control needs work, and some documentation would be nice. But the music is very soothing and it looks reasonably pretty.
