Hesperides Pilcrus, a curious diurnal species. Small groups, or concerts, reportedly dwell in the more accessible woodlands of the Pacific Northwest. Of note to the interested crypto-naturalist is the way in which all Pilcri behave in unison. What an individual does, the whole group will do. Working collectively, a concert of Pilcri are rumored to have escaped the well-secured laboratory of one Dr. F. W. Nervoso. Of course, Hesperides Pilcrus being an imaginary species, no evidence of this event actually exists. Except, as you might have guessed, for this game.

"...More complicated than good ol' Tetris, but Orbles still carries the addictive nature of most great puzzlers." - Ivan Velez, The Indie
What's an Orble?  Ask any hardcore Orbles player what their favorite game is all about, and you're likely to hear something like this: "You have to arrange all these pieces as they fall, but each piece is different, so it gets really interesting. And there's bombs and slammers and frogs and music and weird, weird bonuses. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to take my medicine now." Nickelpig Media's first game, a PC puzzler called Orbles, is difficult to describe. Think Tetris meets Mahjong, with a dash of psychodelia. Intrigued? Download the full version of Orbles for free!
