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.

This game was quite the challenge, I cant even count how many times I died, but it was fun as hell!

Protip:
Once the timer started counting down I started just working with two fingers(until lvl21) go in short, small bursts knowing EXACTLY what you want to do for the next 5seconds or so. Wait for timer to change the letters/arrows around, find the two you need(usually jump/left or jump/right) and use those two to get past the obstacle.

There is also one level where you have to ride the elevator up moving left/right to avoid spikes, then there is some middle obstacle(forgot what it was...falling maybe?), followed by having to jump up a bunch of platforms to the door. The cycle for the letters is just a clockwise turn, Up becomes Right, Right becomes Down, Down becomes Left, Left becomes Up, Repeat. Every 5th cycle the directions are "normal" again

Well observed, sir :)
Most of the times, it follows a pattern, so with a good bit of observation you can figure out the pattern on most levels. Glad you liked the game :D

Awesome game. It is an excellent concept and it's hard to walk away from it. I made myself beat all the levels. Except for level 21. I must be missing something, because I can only make it half way. Please tell me I am.


cupnoodles responds:

Level 21 is all about reflexes. You just have to press the right key as fast as possible. It's difficult, but not impossible. Just don't take your eyes off the visual aid and keep pressing right as fast as you can and you should be able to beat it :)
