Symmetrical objects (items etc.)
Four-way: + = 0
Horizontal: * ! " _ ^
Vertical: ( ) [ ] { } |
Diagonal: / $ % \\ ` ~
(Huh. Backslash is getting translated to two backslashes!)

Symmetrical creatures
Four-way: H I O o X x
(I with serif)
Horizontal: A M T U V W w : '
Vertical: B C c D E K Y 3
Diagonal: N S s Z z

Seems like most of the game has some axis of symmetry :P

Now for votes: which set of symmetrical symbols is scarier: objects or creatures?

Hm, I was gonna say creatures, but water still always scares me a little. And wands in the hands of creatures can be very scary.

Well, Sorceror, thanks for this detailed analysis :P, but I didn't have a difference between objects and creatures in mind. It was just the sheer symmetrical beauty of the colon.

Seems ladder is better than symmetry.

I'd be inclined to say that : has vertical symmetry as well, not just horizontal symmetry.

#7 Anonymous Fri, 13 Aug 2010 16:53:07
And rotational symmetry!

#8 Sorceror Sat, 14 Aug 2010 03:33:07
PRIME NUMBERS!

#9 Sorceror Sat, 14 Aug 2010 03:35:05
Kiwi13cubed, yeah, I should have moved it to a different row. I guess I was thinking it's punctuation but it's the size of a lower-case letter ...

: has vertical, horizontal, and rotational symmetry.
