ANOTHER POSSIBLE FIX: In internet explorer go to Tools>Internet Options>Security tab>Click Trusted Sites>Click the "sites" button and add to the list. Make sure require server verification in unchecked and make sure the enable protected mode button is uncheck as well in the trusted sites section. I have no way to verify this but it seems viable. Let me know if it works.

If that doesn't work try playing the game in Popup mode.

FIRST: THANKS to Tom Fulp for setting up the Power of Three event last summer.
SECOND: If you get stuck watch the video walkthroughs accessable through the in game menu.
THIRD: In the boss fight, watch for the blue target... and prehaps use your blue ability where it is pointing...
FOURTH:If the game runs slow for you right click and lower the quality settings until the game runs at normal speed.

Primary has been a long project for FrozenFire and me, we started this back in July... TONS of work have gone into this game and we hope you like it as much as we do.

Primary is about Roy, a super soldier in the land of the HUEman (get it? Ya we are lame.), who must climb to the top of Prizim tower to try to find a way to close the portal that is allowing horrible black goopy creatures into his world.

NOTE: You can play with an x-box controller with an emulator like Xpadder, I am told this also fixes the "Sticky Keys" bug. The elevator menu is able to be controlled with the keyboard as soon as the game has saved so you don't have to use the mouse if you don't want to.

If you are interested in learning more about the process of making Primary you can read my post mortum of sorts here:

Laggy game

Even on low settings this game lags at the boss so bad I can't hardly move.
Also, it doesn't take 5 seconds to save a flash game. Your thinly veiled attempt at shoving advertisements down our throats is unwanted.

Good Concept, Terrible Execution

I began playing this game because it looked like fun and could kill a few minutes i had not ding anything important. and for the first few levels i was entertained. That was until i hit levels 14 and 15. I spent 30 minutes on level 15 and couldn't get past the yellow checkpoint.
It is ridiculous. The game tries to combine so many aspects of different games, like the wall slide from prince of persia and portals from portals. I mean i like the idea, don't get me wrong i'm not hating this game entirely. But when you reach a point where EVERYTHING you do results in your immediate demise, it just gets boring. The wall slide just doesn't work. It is also slow. it takes live five seconds for the screen to reload every time you die. which is a lot. I don't under stand why the colour changing keys are j,k,l. why not the number keys, or lets the played choose the keys themselves. And One hit deaths with very few checkpoints is extremely irritating. Many times i found myself cursing the screen because i touched some black goop a few feet from the door and sent to the beginning it sucks the fun out of it. Why not add a health bar, like three hits are you're out. You could even have the black stuff slowly covering the character each time. I got so frustrated with this game, that I had to make an account just to let off steam. it started fun and i thought it would be a hit like Spewer which was front pages for like 3 or 4 weeks. but now i wouldn't care if i saw this on the front page or if it got thrown in the 'nice try' bin. Just a few things to think about if you make a sequel.

AWD on a azerty keyboard are really boring. And if you are a left-hander with azerty keyboard is just horrible...

JackSmack responds:

I don't know how to fix the issue since it only happens on certain computer setups. PC's are extremely wide ranging and flash can have issues with anything from a graphics card, to an instant messaging program, to even an antivirus software.

Saying that there are bugs in the game that are the fault of the developer when the bugs are related to the setup on certain computers isn't really all that fair. But hey at least you gave us a 2 instead of a 0 I guess.

If you are having issues with the game and would like to help me figure out what is causing them I'm all for working with you to get the problems solved. However flash is a mysterious beast and usually doesn't play well with everyone's computers.

Ask any other flash developer you will get HORROR stories of flash just not doing what it should or crazy weird bugs just happening for no reason whatsoever. :)

We developers know that flash is far from a perfect medium. The more complex a game or animation gets the more likely the fla is to corrupt, or just decide not to do what you programmed it to do anymore.

Keep in mind that this game was made by 2 guys, one of them in highschool so I think we did a bang up job personally even if we couldn't test the game on thousands of different computer setups to make sure it works perfectly for absolutely everyone.

Now if you will excuse me I'm going to go see if I can get Primary to run on an IBM PC Junior just in case. :P

If I come across as grumpy I'm sorry, I'm tired. This is not meant to be mean spirited.

Just you should understand that a LOT of work goes into something like this and not every game can be perfect for everyone, perhaps if you changed your setup a little like your browser, or turned off any unneeded programs running in the background you could narrow down the cause and enlighten me.

2 Stars And I'll TELL YOU WHY

I Liked this game!

BUT I did not like the "Saving" sequence. What exactly is being saved?

The 'saving' sequence is just a pause in the game to GET YOU TO LOOK AT AN AD. What is there to 'save' and why does it take that long?? YOUR HIGHSCORE?
