WARNING:
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: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1265535
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.

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 fantastic example of genius in puzzle games

With games like Portal, the puzzle genre has made its mark on modern-day gaming, and this game keeps it going.

It's difficult to understand, but once you get going, you don't stop. That's the way all puzzle games should be, and it does so with charm and... well, screaming monsters.

The music is a tad repetitive (a few optional themes would have been nice, but that's probably asking too much, now isn't it?), and the sound effects may unsettle at first, but it does maintain a good pace. And it's not about that, it's about the puzzles.

And how addictive is this? With add-on gameplay from everyone else, it never can end, and minds will somehow bend this even more brilliantly in the future.

All in all, the best example of black-to-white negative space gameplay since the Shift series. Very well done!

You flatter me, I could never compare to Portal!
For one thing, in Portal, the cute turrets kill you, whereas here, you kill cute monsters.

As you point out, the add-on gameplay from everyone else can make this game bigger than my lazy self could ever be bothered to do. Minds bent for the people, by the people.

It is people like YOU who help make the Puzzle genre as strong as it is now!
... And for that, I thank you, fellow monster.

A whole lot of puzzling fun

There's a lot to like here. It's really slick, simple, and addictive. There's no struggle against the controls, which plagues a lot of flash games, just creative puzzle design. The levels vary pretty significantly in difficulty, however, which seems to dilute the sense of skill progression. Other than that, it's a near-perfect puzzle game that could excel on just about any platform. I look forward to seeing where this might go in the future (iOS, PSN, XBLA, Steam).

dude

i don't think i've ever played a puzzle game like this before. in fact, i think this may be a totally original concept. good job. fun, and the user levels makes it even better.

My 'originality' runs out in my responses to reviews.
That said
Thanks for the review!
