Why we were down this weekend...

Sorry about the interruption, if you noticed. GoDaddy blocked our hosting due to a "network violation" without giving us prior notice, so I woke up Saturday morning to a somewhat unpleasant surprise. Apparently our web games were stealing more than their fair share of their hosting server's resources. I told them to behave, with my strictest daddy-voice, but that wasn't good enough for GoDaddy.

Fortunately, the latest version of Entanglement uses Google App Engine, and was not affected by the block. Unfortunately, Sand Trap and the older versions of Entanglement were. After being down nearly all day Saturday, I decided to move to a new hosting service.

Since Sand Trap functions entirely client-side, it is back up: enjoy!

However, the older version of Entanglement (with the sea-green background) is currently not functional and is redirecting to the latest version of Entanglement. If you have issues with the newest version, please check out our Entanglement support page.


  1. why not AWS? I'm happy with their prices and speed.

  2. Hi I've been playing this game for a couple days. Love it. On the free version I guess I played for a little while just fine then found that many times I choose to select a tile to it's position another tile will pop up and automatically be chosen randomly then a third tile will come up and most always runs me into a wall. I bought the expansion pack thinking this was as an incentive to buy and still have this issue. Can you advise i this is suppose to happen and/or how I can fix it? Thank you!

  3. Hi Special K,

    So you're saying that you click to place a tile, but more than one tile is being placed?

    We haven't seen that exact issue before, but I can suggest a few things that might be causing it.

    First, are you running an extensions in your browser? If so, try disabling them and seeing how the game runs.

    Also, are you using the mouse or the keyboard to control? I know some mice give our game problems. Try the keyboard controls (arrow keys, space bar, and z) and see if the problem still occurs.

    Let me know if that helps.
