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.

5 Stars indeed, this is a great game! At first the graphics seemed a bit simple, and the physics could have been better when you're walking over a ladder. Still, the simple graphics were a good choice, since it's a game concept I have never seen before - this way you could concentrate better. Also the controls of the game were very easy to grasp.

I really want to give this game a fair shot because I can see that it may be a pretty interesting game. However there are too many problems with it, as a platformer, for me to continue. Since this is your first game, I'll give you some pointers should you want to make more.

-The controls are much too floaty. You stay in the air much too long, the gravity doesnt feel realistic. The left and right movement accelerates too slow and decellerates too slow, so it feels very very slippery. You should hit full speed and come to a complete stop either very quickly or immediately.

- The hitboxes for the enemies was much too large. Generally as a game design rule, you want positive objects to have a larger hitbox than their size and negative objects to have a smaller hitbox than their size.

The sad thing is that these were really the only problems that I came across, but it was enough to make me not play the game. Good luck with your future projects!

It's good but it pissed me off....I get the concept and you deserve some kudos for that - and the music was decent. Nice enough graphics as well. It's just not my sort or thing I guess or I would have given it a 4+ I enjoyed playing for about 30 mins, but after that I'm not that committed to finishing the game.
