Had 'fun' getting it down to sub-10k, but it all squeezed in eventually (like four elephants in a mini).
Click the tiles. Follow the arrows. Find the chalice. Seconds passed, and clicks, both reduce your level score. See if you can make the online scoretable...
Your questions answered:
#1: Wot crappy sonds! - It's 10 Kb, of which the audio makes less than 3 kb. What do you expect, a bloody orchestra? I spent ages making TINY sections of wavs that would create a certain pitch when looped. Appreciate my work, or I will have to kill you.
#2: How does the scoring work?! - The number of hidden arrows decreases as the levels increase. The value of each second (remaining) also increases with the levels. At the start of each level, (NUMBER OF SECONDS x VALUE OF SECONDS) + LEVEL BONUS is added to your score. With each click you make, the LEVEL BONUS drops by 10, and with each second that passes, you lose the VALUE OF SECONDS for that level (50 on level 1, rising by 25 per level).
#3: Shitty gamplay! - I'm fully aware that this won't appeal to blood-and-gore freaks. If it's not your 'usual fare', then please don't bother to review (well, you can if you want, but it'll be a waste of your time). This is for the puzzle freaks and highscore competitors out there. I'll get round to making a game where you can date/kill zombie vampire lesbians, when I can spare a little more time.
#4: Shity graphics! - EVERYTHING besides the sound is created using Actionscript. There are no pre-drawn graphics. The arrows, the chalice, the title screen, the tiles, the buttons, the text, the fireworks, are all created using lines and curves drawn by code, and dynamically-created textboxes. Please be aware of this fact when judging the graphics.
#5 2 EZ to cheat! - Get a life, and stop spoiling the fun for everyone else.
#6 It wont wrk n my PC, WTF!!! - Shame, isn't it? It's only 10 kb, play it online...
#7 THROW IT was better! - WTF, you hated that game too, STFU.
#8 All you other submission suck!!! - YES I HAVE NO TALENT, HAPPY NOW? HUH?? HUH???
#9 You suck/you game sux/my granny could do better/never touch Flash again/it bored me/where's the justice/why is this on Newgrounds/I didn't like it/etc - I REALLY CARE ABOUT YOUR OPINION. NO, REALLY. I'M BEING SERIOUS. YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE ME.
#10 Somebody set up us the bomb!! - You know what you doing.
