I present to you, Confound.
My first serious project in Flash, made over the course of a month using Flixel.

You are a test subject of the Confound project, which studies the mind's ability to relearn how to perform simple tasks such as jumping and walking around while under the effect of artificial confusion.

Forget all you have learned about movement controls.
It's time to get confused.

WARNING - This game can be quite difficult at later stages. It also has an Auto-Save feature, so if you are having trouble, you can just quit and finish it later!

Protip - Take your time and think it through before moving around when near danger. Try no to be reckless.

Seeing as this is only my first flash game, I'd really appreciate some insightful reviews about what could be improved upon or not, if the game is enjoyable or not, that kind of stuff.

I hope you all enjoy this one!

EDIT - Woah! Front Page? Thanks, Newgrounds!

EDIT 2 - Reduced enemies and spikes' hitboxes.

PS: You can control the Volume with the - and + keys and mute/unmute with the 0 key.

Really nasty little game, wonderfully done. The only problem is that a lot of the time, the display lies about which direction is which and you have to figure it out for yourself, which really sucks on the timer levels. Please fix that and you will have an awesome little masocore game here.

Very good game, the idea behind is good, but it needs to know the location of all the letter in the keyboard, which I think is not good. In the last level I think could be better if you restrict to few buttons (maybe the four arrows and the WASD) so it would be just about reflexes.

Interesting game. The ladders should be bigger, though. The side movement is so imprecise that it is hard to line up with those teeny ladders.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

The concept seems good, but the controls are not responsive, that's essential for a game with altering controls.
