WARNING: This Game no longer has flashing images, but shakey camera is annoying. so those with photosensitive epilepsy beware.

I have playtested the game with WASD as the controls, and confirmed that all you people complaining about the nonstandard control schemes are morons who don't understand what it would do to the game. It would ruin it.

This is the kind%uFEFF of game that turns people into Batman villains.-MountedDragoon

MARKIPLIER has done an awesome LP of this. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuX7IDfHguY

This is a game made in 4 days as part of Newgrounds Game Jam 9.

"It's fun because it's challenging. I kind of feel like my critical thinking has improved for playing this game."-Kadako
Rated 5 / 5 stars

Really well done."- szx
Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

"You my friend are the Devil.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

"a perfect masterpiece, the controls were simple enough to be played but hard enough to our brain takes a while to get used to it, sadly, when I finally understood, the screen begun spinning more and more ;-; you evil genius, I LOVE IT"-THE-VOID
Rated 5 / 5 stars

It has a very alternate control scheme and is inspired very vaguely by this screenshot: http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/havegum/physics-hell?context=ratings:etm.search:screenshotjam.offset:12

And I mean very vaguely.

This is a challenging skill based game where quick reflexes and quick thinking let you beat the game.

You start off in a Black and White World, not knowing where you are or what to do. And then BOOOM COLORS!!!!! RAINBOWS!!

X.C.V.B stands for something but I'm not sure what yet. You tell me XD.

X to left and right. C to up and down. V to go in the direction of UP or DOWN. B to go in the direction of Left or Right.

Get to the end of the levels.

The game gets faster as you go along.

Eventually you will come across the Malevolent Levels where what you are shown and what you will are the opposite. You must use considerable thinking to beat this game.

I would love you forever if you beat this game.

It's quite hard.

For those who like to look for messages and such in things. There's a subtle political commentary on the attitude of gay rights going on. As can be seen by the introduction of the rainbow levels.
That's only if you want to look further into something than you should

After struggling with the controls for a bit, I actually come to like this game. It sort of grows on you. My brain got quite a work-out! I really like the trippy effect and acid music, they both meld together well!


makehimanoffer responds:

Exactly what I was going for. I like to believe it tests your skill, concentration, and reflexes

After beating every level, I can say that I enjoyed playing the game. There are some minor problems that people have already mentioned such as the collission with walls being.. maybe too early. The controls were hard and it took me quiiite a while to get used to them ... but I guess that was your aim. :)
Definetly something I haven't seen on Newgrounds yet - good job on making something creative.


makehimanoffer responds:

The main problem with the collision was bounding box versus pixel perfect. I should've done pixel perfect. So they may have been too early.

Yes the aim was to throw off the player a bit with a nonstandard control scheme and way of movement. I think that if it was just wasd the game would have been drastically different. It's name would be different for one....

Thanks for the review XD

Unique game, and I quite enjoyed it. The controls took some getting used to for me, just because I didn't really understand at first. It's overall a pretty simple concept that you executed quite nicely. I liked how it got faster as you went along, forcing you to make quick key decisions and making you pay attention.

I just have to say though, I would've liked a less...flashy(?) background, since my eyes really took a beating to that. Maybe an option to turn the animation of it off? Also, I noticed that it would sometimes say I hit something before I would actually hit it. Other than that overall good simple game ! Keep up the goo work :)

makehimanoffer responds:

Apologies, the difference between between bounding box and pixel perfect collision I fear...... ah yeah... In hindsight a some of the flashiness shouldve been left out. I was going for sort of trippy

this game is very hard

And for that reason you gave it a bad review??? Are you freaking kidding me?

Awesome game, great example of how a single mechanic and good level design can bring so much to a game.
