One day, while you're testing a level for a developer friend of yours, you accidentally discover a hidden world inside the game. Alphaland is the story of exploring that world.

Arrow keys or WASD to move
Up/W/X/Space to jump

[Alphaland is a minimalistic platformer. It's pretty straightforward to play, so I'd rather not say too much and let you explore it yourselves. I hope you enjoy it!]

Wow.

Just wow. Short, but one of the best games I have ever played.

Ever.

Note: You need to have a brain in order to enjoy the balls-out meta that is this game.

Again, wow. This is the first newgrounds game that made me feel something.

It made me FEEL something. Just... wow.

Amazing!

Although a lot of people fail to see the concepts involved, I particularly enjoyed the alpha/broken world idea. What lacks is more gameplay, and features, and more depth to some themes. But the mood is really well depicted.

Thanks for this!

Kinda short.

But other than that it was fun. It was very linear, and the storyline could use some more explanation. I got it, but that was pretty vague. I enjoyed the sound clips being played backwards, as well as the ending music. Overall, what this was meant to be, it achieved, so I do believe this is a very good game in the end.
Can't wait for it to be finished... :P

Unique

We've all played those crappy Atari games. From first glance, I felt as though history was repeating itself. Instead this game opens up a unique and colorful atmosphere that blends into the games core. This block character that you play as, has an amazing story that he's being put through, and the feel of this games setting was something I've never seen before.

However, I do still feel like the games being carried by the storyline. While the story's core element is the fact that your inside of an old Atari game, it's still hard to make up for the game play. I feel as though there could have been dozens of challenging elements put into the world your discovering, but instead your experiencing the same game play as the game would have intentionally offered.

I loved the idea of the game, and the mood was set perfectly. However, I feel that there could have been so many new game play elements discovered in your newly found world.
