Toggles is my anniversary project to congragulate myself for being an allegro member for one year (is that redundant?).
This game is a fast paced, puzzle-like strategy game. The goal is to get the Toggles under water, but moving over underwater Toggles brings them back up. Each level you pick what challenge you will have to face and it gets difficult pretty fast.
- Fast paced, puzzle solving
- Online scores
- Special tricks for getting highscores
- Addictive play
- Realistic water effects
Many thanks to miran for several code examples provided in the a.cc forums.
||Just the code for Toggles (Linux based).

Overall Rating: 5.7
- Technically a solid game despite some minor glitches. Gameplay may seem boring at first, but once you get into it, it's quite challenging and the online scores to play against make sure you want to try again. Artistically it's quite horrible to be honest but overall it's better than most games here.
- You already know what I'd say, so here's just a grade. ;) PS. Friend voting sucks.
- Wow! With this update, the game gets even better! I really like this game. It rocks. Download it now.
I've been making games since I was five years old. My most notable game back in my early days was the ABC game, a Mario-like platform game where an enemy's difficulty was determined by what letter it was. I also thought if I drew this on paper, it'd somehow magically appear in the Nintendo.
I've since grown and continued my dreams of one day making games. (View Profile
