Make sure volume is on. And speakers are in the correction position (i.e left is in left pos). No graphics. Just sounds. Its a sound based tile puzzle. Navigate across a maze full of little traps and other fun mechanism. The screen is all black normally.

Arrow Keys move and shift Q starts a new game at level 1 (erases old data once you beat the first level) M = mutes the background music

Well this was an interesting game. My first attempt at clearing it resulted in mainly aggravation, but it's an interesting concept. Reading your responses below I realize there's more sound to the game than I initially thought, though I don't think I made it to any level with a pit. Is there a sound for walls before you reach those, or is the wall part still trial and error though? I like the idea, will give it another go some dark night. Maybe just turn the lights off while I'm playing so the whole room is dark and not just a box on the screen. That should boost the experience. Nice work!

ZeroCreativity1 responds:

There are only sound for hitting a wall. The idea was to try a path, go until you hit a wall and then find another direction to go, keeping in mind which way you already went. With noises to indicate obstacles.

I just don't get the appeal of games that are basically "Guess where the game designed wants you to go" It is literally like "Pick a number between 1 and 10". Except you are playing it hundreds of times in a row in this game. I can't imagine someone playing "Pick a number between 1 and 10" even TWICE, let alone hundreds of times.


ZeroCreativity1 responds:

I see it as more as pattern recognition and map discovery/exploration, than trail and error. For instance, the pits have a "rock falling into a pit sound" to indicate there is a pit is within 1 square. And of course, wall sounds to indicate walls to know where the boundaries are. There is some luck involved, but if you pay close attention to the sounds you can beat the game in far less than a 100 tries.

You know, if you want. Creating your own path-finding algorithm, remembering that path, Trying to figure out what sounds mean what, and listening carefully to each step you take and determine where to go based on the sound isn't something everyone enjoys.

Well this is clever. It's certainly never been done before, and the graphics are impeccable... hehe...
It's very challenging, but of what I've played so far, I can safely say that it's very doable. In short, this is a wonderful game.

Something NEW, the idea itself is awesome, but i think, it was a mistake to add a "joking scientist-test subject" thing, it would be more interesting to see people crawl in darkness without instructions or , at least, with more serious scientist, with older and deeper voice. Anyway, the game is good, i mean really good, it holds me, until i complete it.
Gameplay : 5/5
Sound : 4/5 (that annoying portal-like thing)
Music : 5/5
Graphic : uhmm..... potato?
