Mouse Reversal Test

By Deane Barker on September 24, 2004

scenta: This is so much harder than it looks. You’re presented with a little Flash maze, and you have have to maneuver a block through it — but the movement of your mouse has been reversed. Now you move it up to go down, right to go left, etc.

What it proves, I think, is how proficient we’ve become with the mouse. It’s just like an extension of our hand that we don’t even think about, and when someone plays with the rules, we don’t do so well.

  1. I haven’t reversed my mouse, yet. But someone please tell me how-in-the-hell you’re supposed to get past 18…

  2. There’s 20. “Congratulations, you have successfully completed the game.”

    My blood pressure is through the roof right now.

  3. Well, I have a flaky trackpoint on a laptop that reverses the horizontal input axis from time to time… I can use it, but it takes some thought, and I usually just default to the touchpad then
