You create the level sets.

Wonderful free game! The best part about it is the customization of the characters and objects. First thing you get to customize is your character. He can be just a ball if you want. Then the jet pack. Then a flower. Then a helper unit. Then a tree. That's where I am so far. I got to the level where the passcode is ARENA. But you wouldn't want to skip ahead, because each level adds more elements to the game. In any case, you don't have to remember the passcode for the last level you did. When you choose continue, that passcode is automatically there.

The surface gets cut to exactly as you planned it.

An interesting technology, which I wouldn't use due to usage of ink and paper, is the ability to print out the maps and draw the solutions there. Then using a scanner or webcam to scan your hand-drawn solutions back into the game. I think you can also do this for characters and the other objects that can be customized. At the moment, it's also extra work for solutions which are too easily worked out. The mouse isn't terrible at drawing either. And there definitely wouldn't be a problem if you had a tablet.

Then you take your actionaut, set out on the newly cut surface, and try to collect all the data.
If at first you don't succeed, try and try again.

So I went back and finished the game. There's about 15 levels and the story culminates with a file you should print out and cut up, because trying to solve it virtually is a pain in the butt. In my completed solution, four edge pieces were missing. I'm not sure if this was intentional or not. Regardless, the pieces given were enough to read off the code and obtain the final part of the story. The ending, if you can even call it that, isn't anything special.

As you can see, each customization comes from a drawing.
You make the drawing and the game automatically brings it to life.
