In Darkness - The Cage, you start each level in a dark cage with only a paintball-gun with limited ink available to help out. You must use the ink to reveal the walls and items in the cage in order to eventually find the exit. In true puzzle-strategy-platform style, the ink in Darkness - The Cage is limited, and you need to spend it wisely or you'll never escape the Cage....the less ink you use, the higher the score.

Inked in

This is the darkness which all shall succumb to.

Well, not all. Truthfully, darkness is the weapon here (though I did like the odd twist at the end). I can't imagine a world of white. I feel that it would be blinding and intolerable. My eyes seek the darkness. Only my mind heads for the light. In any case, this simple game was rather fun, though I might feel that the controls were a Yes, that's about it. Since it's a fairly-simple form of play, there isn't much to harp about, but let's just say that some of the deaths were unfortunate and avoidable if not for a less hair-trigger-like system. Nevertheless, a good game.

When I first saw the premise for this game, I felt equal parts angry that someone was ripping off Ian Dallas and happy that someone had taken the time to put together a playable version.

When I first began to play, I felt equal parts happy that Dallas had been credited as inspiration and angry that it was a simple platform game and not the full 3D shooter game that Ian advertised.

When I finished the game, I was pretty much just bored with the subject and voted 5 for the heck of it.

Also, Dallas needs to finish his game. Like soon.
