Isle of Sound: a sequencer powered by little cars

Isle of Tune is a graphic musical sequencer; you build little "Islands" consisting of roadways lined with houses, trees and other terrain, then you set virtual cars running around the roads; each terrain item they pass makes a different sound. The island pictured here is the number one on the leaderboard at present; it plays an obscure pop song called "Beat It."

  1. This is a very charming little flash app.

    Reminds me of the playscape inside of Treasure World (that Nintendo DS no one except me “played”). Except this is, like, a million times better in terms of execution.

  2. Doesn’t load for me; the loading screen stops right before it finishes. Anyone else having the same problem? Did the site get slashdotted?

  3. Reminds me very much of the Befunge programming language, and its various derivatives, especially those direction changing arrow squares.
