Guide your seven heads through mazes to escape the big head.

The game is rather short, you should be able to beat it quickly, I noticed its too short when everything was done and I didnt want to work on it anymore.
It loads a while mainly because of the music, but this would be nothing without it.

So good graphics, music and more things, That motivates me to create another game. Good submission. 5 Stars!!!!

How did I let this submission slip by me?

I'm really impressed with how much fun this game is. It is a bit short but I feel like with the current selection of powerups and obstacles all was done that could be done. The difficulty is pretty moderate, but getting all seven sisters through the whole maze is where it starts to get challenging. Orion was hardest in my opinion.

I feel like the reward at the end was somewhat . . . unrewarding . . . especially because I found a great deal of challenge, and fun, came from trying to read as I play. And if you wanted to give us the ability to read without hassle, then you could have simply provided a page-by-page transcript. Overall, I feel like another level, one of questionable completability, would have been better, or if you were feeling lazy, then you could have activated a mirror mode, where we scroll to the west. Or maybe a high-speed mode, or a larger-obstacle mode. Or all three. There's lots of lazy ways to create rewards!

These haven't been complains, just suggestions for a possible next one. I don't really have any gripes about this game. The concept still feels fresh, and this is the most fun I've ever had with a side-scroller. It's a grand improvement on the first one.

Sorry I didn't find this submission earlier, I've been really busy these past months.

Rarykos responds:

No problem :) , I'm surprised you found it after such a long time, you probably have better things to do.
Yes, its sad I had no better idea for a reward.
These are good ideas, i dont know why I never thought about them.

Now just to end the sequel.

Great Game!

That was one of the greater games here on newgrounds!

A bug that doesn't really affect the game much is that if you go left you end up in just the background you might want to fix that.

Rarykos responds:

Yep, fixed that.


Short, sweet and relaxing. Just what i needed this evening. :)

Cant really say much about the game, because i felt its perfect the way it is.

Kudos :)

But i agree with ViceO, colours emerging as you progress thrue the game would be a really nice touch to it.

But to be honest, id much rather see you leave this one as it is and work on a sequel. ;)

The crowd is pleased, but now they want more ;P



Yeeeeeeeeeeees, great game :3 game, game!
