Google Chrome has a built-in Flash Player, and ever since the new update causes a sound glitch to happen. Before the update, it never occurred, yet it's the SAME file. Honest. Newgrounds has also noted other problems with the new Chrome update regarding Flash:
So... you might want to use a different browser until Google fixes this, unless they're too busy figuring out what the hell to do with G+ now.

EDIT: Issue seems to be fixed now. I did nothing.

NOTE: You must be logged in on Newgrounds to submit your own levels. Everything else will still work fine.

EDIT: Over 300 GapWorld levels! You sadists.
EDIT: Over 800 GapWorld levels! You monsters.
EDIT: Over 1,000 GapWorld levels! You humans.


Mind-bending, Space-rending, and Completely Innocent Creature's Life-ending.

In this negative-space puzzle game, you'll drag around holes, fall through walls, and bring myriads of miniature Monsters to madness.

Say you sadistically hunger for more levels, or you just detest the levels I've made. That's fine, you can play negative-space puzzles created by other Newgroundians! And you too, can make your own.

Use the Level Creator to design your very own puzzles, and share them with a cold uncaring world. More Monsters to torture, for the good of everyone else!

Think outside the box, fellow monsters.

A game of burning brains and funny hours!

One of the best puzzlegames I've ever played and believe me after tetris i played them ALL!
The humorous descriptions and hints, the funny athmosphere and the leveldesign is simply described in the word: "awesome" ;D
Combined with the cute grafics, the catching tune and some other STD's this game strikes puzzle gaming market and if there is a chance to get this game on your Phone in form of an App:
I'd totally buy it!

Where to begin

This is probably the best, or at least one of the best games I've played on NG. I love puzzle games, and gap monsters was a great game with plenty to do. Once you've finished all of the levels, you can go back and try to complete them in the least amount of moves to 'star' them. If you don't want to do that, you can create levels of your own and try and rate other peoples custom levels.

The level editor allows for endless creativity, and gap world is a stroke of genius. The rating system allows you to find a game suited to your play style, by allowing you to find the games rated most fun, most challenging, etc. Gap world even keeps track of your stats.

As for the puzzle mechanics itself, as far as I am aware the play style is unique, which makes for longer and more interesting gameplay and an overall better experience. The mosters are funny and really add something to the game.

For the reasons stated above, I give you 5/5 and 10/10.

Quite fun indeed

I really enjoyed the puzzle mechanics in this game. I found myself learning at an appropriate rate seen by the fact that earlier puzzles became so much easier to 'star'. That to me shows an intelligent programming of puzzles.
The music could have been a bit more varied. I actually have to critique the choice of part of the main theme because it is *way* too close to the angry birds soundtrack.

Slight bug with level loading

The level loading fails with the Gapworld levels, it seems that the system thinks too fast that it can't connect to Newgrounds' servers. You should modify the timeout to something like 5 seconds, it's currently less than one second now. Also, my level upload failed even if it said at the upload box that the upload was succesful. The level shows at the 'Recently played Gapworld levels' box, but it gives an error that I'm either not connected to the internet, the level is corrupted or the ID is wrong.

Also, there are some slight bugs concerning the physics engine, but they aren't that important (I once managed to get a monster that lives in black inside a white square)

Also, I like the music.
