(Full title: The Man with the Invisible Trousers)

Have you ever wondered what it's like to fight a bear? Well, prepare to keep wondering, because this game has nothing to do with bear fights!

You are part of an elite detective team, but when your boss is murdered, who can you trust? I mean, Jenny wouldn't kill him, would she? Or Alistair? Perhaps it was Lily? Or maybe it was YOU!

The only way to find out is to put your detective skills to the test, in this mind-bending puzzle platformer.

By the way, the murderer changes each playthrough - use your brain to work out who the real killer is!



it was ok, bit simple i thought tho, yet creative :) good work


it was fun but sometimes i felt like pushing the walkthrought button but i didnt!!

time for me to be a jackass.

This game COULD be a 10, but it's plagued by a few crippling issues. Firstly, the game is a tad un-original. It plays a bit like another game I've played by the name of "Sarah's run." It never made it to NG, so I'm willing to ignore the similarity.
My second problem lies within the invisibility of the man's trousers. They make it a bit difficult at some points to figure out just what I can and can't land on. Maybe if they were just a semi-transparent pale grey, the game could prosper while maintaining its style.
My biggest and most frustrating issue with this game is it's crummy control scheme. I've played a few platformers like this that involve frequent changes in gravity, but none have ever limited me to only use the left and right keys. When you're upside-down, I want left to go left, not right. And when I'm on a wall, I want to move w/ the up and down keys.
Other than that, this game is phenomenal. Great level design, stylish graphics, music, concept, and all around gameplay. Despite a few minor issues, this is an amazing game.

Hi, thanks for the feedback!
It was in part inspired by Sarah's Run. I'm a fan and friend of Sophie Houlden, and I give her full credit for being awesome. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't be able to program AS3, so if she were Plato then I'm her Aristotle.

As for controls, it's tough because I know some people work in different ways, but the only way I could get smooth movement around corners was to keep using the same arrow keys. I'll give it a think, see if I can do a WASD option that works for you if I make a sequel.
P.S. I like your username!

Grix´s opinion

I just can´t say why do i love this game so much.

Maybe is the awesome music, maybe is the creative design, maybe is the replay factor, or maybe is the wonderful classic movie aura this game have.

All i can say is, this game is fantastic. I´ve just became a fan of your work =)

Just in case, the ONLY reason this game is not perfect is the annoying "Stuck-into-the-wall" glitch.

Keep up the great work ^^
