There is no sound, it is a distraction. If you can not understand how to control the "game" a list of controls will be appear below. There are game elements to this such as challenge, conflict, and goals. This "game" is an attempt to explore what those elements mean and how player's drive is affected by their presence.

I would appreciate comments on why you think I made a "game" like this.

Controls are spoilers so they will be listed after a scroll

So I got past the first two levels then it just restarted the levels with no enemies and after I got past the reincarnation of the second level with no enemy its just the first level with no goal...I dunno if this is a glitch or something. But with all of that out of the way the games great and It expresses a meaning...thanks mate.

I got an opportunity to play through all the games you had posted recently and I really dig the deeper messages and meanings. The lack of music in this one makes it seem quite lonely and the final screen gave me an almost eerie feeling. Great work!

VinceB responds:

Thanks for all the praise! I am posting a few more this week end. (I have 3 games due before the end of the semester.) They may not be as strong as some of my others, but I sure as heck did make them.

Interesting

It seemed odd at first, too easy, then got a little harder, then a little harder but then it just gave out and became way too easy. I did like it, but I don't see why you would make such a game with it's lack of challenge and the like. But i like the style, almost pacman ish but not. Kudos

Your dark queen is pleased <3

VinceB responds:

I appreciate the criticism. I know it is "bad design" to take away challenge and makes a "bad game," but I do not know if "bad design" makes a "bad experience."

ish

boring : /
over too quickly. no music. no point?

VinceB responds:

I appreciate the honest review. I definitely did not create a game even close to perfect.

It's good!

It's like Pac-Man meets pong.

VinceB responds:

I am glad you liked it.
