Net – Reassemble the Network – Puzzle Game



In this game, you play the role of a network administrator, and some fiend has scrambled your network. Your job is to rotate all the pieces so that every computer is connected to the server by pipes and there are no loose ends in your network. Of course, the less work you need to do to complete your network the better.

Net is scored by the number of clicks it takes you to rotate everything into place. The successful solution will be an entirely connected network, with no closed loops. As a visual aid, all tiles which are connected to the one in the middle are highlighted

Net is an implementation of Netwalk. There is also another implementation by Ben Lynn, which can be downloaded from
