Indie developer Apoorva Joshi has launched Socioball, an isometric puzzler for Windows that includes a unique level-sharing feature via Twitter.
Each level in Socioball equips players with a set of path-altering tiles -- including direction changers, jump pads, and teleporters -- that must be used to guide the ball toward the exit. The setup reminds me a bit of Kirby's Dream Course, with more puzzle-oriented gameplay.
What's especially interesting about the Twitter sharing functionality is that players can embed entire levels within a single tweet, and you can simply search for the hashtag #Socioball to access a variety of user-created puzzles. It's a great idea, and it could greatly extend the life of the game if it catches on!
Socioball is priced at $2.99.
