Chapter 18: Untangle

You are given a number of points, some of which have lines drawn between them. You can move the points about arbitrarily; your aim is to position the points so that no line crosses another.

I originally saw this in the form of a Flash game called Planarity [7], written by John Tantalo.

(All the actions described in section 2.1 are also available.)

There is only one parameter available from the ‘Custom...’ option on the ‘Type’ menu:
