Two supercomputers orbit each other deep in space, temporarily offline. A blue-collar techie lands his spacecraft on the surface, and disembarks. His mission: to return power to all four cores and reactivate the data beam.

Binary is a challenging game -- it will test your mind and sometimes your patience. Headphones are recommended.

Controls are listed in-game, but I'll include them here as well:
LEFT/RIGHT: move left or right
UP: jump
Z: open or close a puzzle
Q: change the quality
Use the mouse to manipulate puzzles.

Very challenging, and fun!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Pretty cool! I like the atmosphere set by the music, and the graphics look okay as well.

The platforming serves no purpose other than to walk from one puzzle to the next, and I kinda wish there was more platforming to do than that. Other than that, the puzzles themselves were cool and intrincate, but once you figured them out, you could solve them pretty much algorithmically.

This puzzle game is a bit on the easy side, and a lot on the short side, so I really didn't derive as much satisfaction from it as I could have.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

pretty short! lol i really liked this. the puzzles were challenging, but beatable. all looked cool... the controls weren't in-game and no mute. options are always good. no intro and there's no separation between getting the 2nd and 3rd medal, but nice one; liked the concept

Kinda hard with this one.

Wow, I love this, the way that you've put in such a lot of effort, to get this far, with some frankly brilliant entry, So you have done the time and effort, and thats what drew my attention, so keep doing what you do, and ill keep interested in all your works. This game was interesting, i am glad that you won an award for this game so "CONGRATS" on that, The few medals was not too appealing so maybe adding some extra medals would benice, So the "INTERFACE" on this was kind of nifty, and the controls were explained very well, So this game was hard right at first, i think you should have some sort of "HINT" option or guid option incase you get stuck. I think that the idea in here, really isn't my kettle of fish, but i still found some entertaining value in and through-out the flash. and by the end i was enjoying your idea, so while it took awhile i adapted to your ideas and style.

I like this one, you could still have this Transformed into something more, and something more positive, allthough you did a pretty good job as it is, There are Numerous things that you could do to add some extra concept ideas, So one thing that i think could make this better would be to have more medals, it would increase the fun raing and keep it going for more replay value so add medals as it was kind of lacking in some. So as i suggested above you should have some sort of Hint option or guid option incase you get stuck.
