Codex Gamicus

Bob Came in Pieces is a puzzle/platformer game developed and released by Ludocity Interactive on January 22, 2010.


At the start of the game, the player is in control of a small ship with thrusters that are moved my using the arrow keys. It can only move around, or perhaps ram into other objects, but will soon be able to be modified in order to perform certain tasks. The player's task is to recover the remaining pieces of the ship.

The following components are available:

  • Ship modules: Serve as pieces that join other components to the main ship. They may be a straight piece, a turn, or a splitter.
  • Thrusters: Propels the ship.
  • Pull beam: Pulls an object (with a green halo) towards the beam
  • Push beam: Pushes an object (with a green halo) away from the beam. This also causes recoil.


The default ship is controlled by arrow keys. However, controls can be freely modified once the ship can be configured.
