UPDATE 2: Hopefully fixed some issues addressed in 00Nick00's review! This will be on its way soon.

UPDATE: Max pulses upped from 10 to 20, it may be a short while before the update takes effect but it is on its way!

Dark Maze is a mouse avoider set entirely in the dark, you must emit pulses of light which bounce off of the walls of the level to reveal the surrounding area to you.

The game features 100 levels with new game+, ++ and +++ which add obstacles to the levels for an entirely different experience.

Your goal is to explore the maze to either collect 10 crystals or reach the 100th room. Collecting 10 crystals will allow you to warp to room 100 and advance straight to the next difficulty.

The maze includes a variety of different environments, including aquarium, greenhouse, cauldron, gears, graves, armoury and more.

The game also includes a level editor and about 10 custom levels that were made using it.

HOW TO PLAY:
~ Hover over the orange flames to start and end a level.
~ Move the mouse to navigate, avoid the walls.
~ Left-click to emit a pulse of light.

POWER-UPS:
~ RED FLAME: Gives you a long-lasting pulse of light that illuminates the room for longer than usual.
~ BLUE FLAME: Gives you an ever-lasting pulse of light that keeps the room lit for the rest of your current life.
~ WHITE FLAME: Emits a flash pulse that keeps a small area very well lit for a short period.
~ CYAN FLAME: This flame allows you to traverse water.
~ SMALL FLAME: Acts as a checkpoint and gives you 1 extra pulse.
~ BRIGHT FLAME: Fully restores your pulses.
~ GREEN FLAME: Clicking on this launches the 'merchant' where you spend points earned after each level on the above powerups or additional upgrades.

I've been working on this game since October, the bulk of it was finished in a relatively short time but I took the extra time to add some extras + await the amazing soundtrack provided by InvisibleObserver. I hope you enjoy it!
