Negative Space is a homebrew puzzle game for the NDS, based on the concept of negative space.

User guide

The whole game contains only two colors: black and white.

There are two blob/characters: the white blob moves in the black space, and the black blob in the white space. That's why, empty space for one blob represents solid ground and walls for the other.

How to play

The aim of the game is for each blob to capture its designated flag.

To achieve this goal, the player draws directly on the touch screen in black or white in order to modify the levels (i.e. create new paths and platforms), and push the blobs. Keep in mind that a new path for one blob means new walls for the other!

The blobs are moved by pushing or lifting them with their own color.

Drawing

The remaining ink for each color is displayed on the corresponding gauge, on the upper screen. The number of lines is limited as well, and represented by the small icons between the two ink gauges.

The available quantity of ink and lines is specific to each level.

Saving

The auto-save feature uses the DLDI driver. That means you may have to patch the game depending on your card.

It is however possible to play the game without the save feature.
